Thread: bad day yesterday

  1. #1

    bad day yesterday

    I want to start by saying it was not her fault. Yesterday my caretaker was moving me and the hoyer mechanism just broke. Then I fell. After many xrays all I broke was my arm. Or elbow to be exact. So my string of bad luck continues.

    So sorry to hear you were injured. Hope your elbow heals quickly.

    Do you know what broke on your lift? What kind is it?

    All the best,
    GJ

    One of my fears, having the lift break. Sounds scarey.
    Heal quick!

    That must have been terrifying. Hope the elbow heals right up quick!

    Oh, I don't know, my life seems to be pretty much that way. Like the original poster, I am surely feeling that I'm past due for a change in luck. I am happy to say I've never been dropped from a hoyer lift though, that must have sucked.

    Hope the elbow heals pronto!
