The concert was absolutely fabulous. If you closed your eyes, you could actually believe that the Beatles were playing and singing.
We were a little late getting there although once there, we were able to squeeze into a terrific area up close. We started by going out for dinner. Then we started to walk back to the car to get our chairs and stuff. And of course...it happened...I fell. Big time! In a lane where people get gas.
I fell face first. A crowd gathered around me. Someone called for an ambulance...it wasn't far away after all, just across the street at the concert which was about to start.
A sweet little security guard about the size of my leg asked if she could help me up..oh yeah, I could really see that happening. Other people also offered to help me up but you have to be pretty strong to raise this old body, so I thanked them but declined their offers.
People were afraid I had heat stroke and Lou and I tried to explain that sometimes my knees just give out and I fall but no one seemed to hear us and everyone kept on guessing as to what might be wrong with me.
Someone with a scooter had a pillow and gave it to me to place by my knees so that I could place my knees on something. (My knees hate touching anything...anything hurts them so at least a pillow would hurt less than cement.) I held my cane in one hand and Lou held my other side and I managed to get back on my feet.
We made it back to the car where I had to sit for awhile. Finally we made it over to the concert, which as I said , was absolutely fantastic.
OK, inventory now that I'm home...big colored bump on forehead, front teeth gums swollen and very slightly bloody, right forearm and hand are badly scraped, left ankle is twisted, both knees are aching like anything, feels like a possible fractured rib on the right side of my chest but it may just be a pulled muscle...and then pulled muscles and/or ligaments in most of my body.
