Wishing Everyone a Happy New Year and a New Year’s Day Trip to the ER

Happy New Year to everyone!

Hubby and I stayed in the camper on new years eve. Hubby watched football. Oak Alley does not permit fireworks but although we are in the country, there are apartments close by and a farm behind us. There were fireworks all around us. Loud bangs scare Bella and Benji. BooBoo is not bothered by them. It was a long night. Benji hid under the covers all evening. Bella’s little body trembled. The fireworks started around 7 pm and stopped around 12:30 am.

I don’t make any new year resolutions. 2022 is going to be a busy year for me. My niece Molly and my cousin Loren are getting married. I will fly to Pennsylvania for the shower. I will fly to Arizona for the bachelorette party. Hubby and I will be at our home base from mid-May to the end of June. I will fly to Florida with my family for Molly’s wedding in June. Hubby and I have reservations at the Williamsburg KOA in Virginia for Loren’s wedding. I’m going to spend two nights with family in Virginia while Hubby holds down the fort in the camper with the fur kids.

Hubby was glued to the TV new years day watching his Nittany Lions play. Unfortunately, they lost.

BooBoo gave me a big smooch at Midnight.

I can’t seem to stay upright. A week or so ago, I fell on the pickleball court and bumped my head. On New Year’s day evening while trying to grill my hubby hamburgers on the grill right outside the back steps of the 5th wheel, my flip flops caught in the steps and down I went. The neighbor heard me yelling for hubby to come out. He yelled over asking if I needed help while I was laying on the ground. I said no, my hubby was coming out. I did have to yell several times for Hubby. UGH!

My feet got the brunt of the fall. Somehow they got tangled in the flip flops and I honestly thought I had two broken feet. I thought I should get them checked at Urgent Care. Well, Urgent Care did not have an x-ray machine. They recommended a place that was a minute away.

UF Health The Villages® Hospital Freestanding ER

UF Health Central Florida recognized the need to provide convenient access to high-quality health care in the Brownwood area of The Villages®, the city of Wildwood, and the surrounding communities to meet the growing demand for emergency services. In 2019, more than 80,000 patients visited the emergency rooms at UF Health The Villages® Hospital and UF Health Leesburg Hospital. The Freestanding ER is a full service emergency room capable of accepting and stabilizing all emergency patient populations.

The modern, 25,000-square-foot facility is open 24/7 and features a full complement of staff, including physicians, nurses and patient care technicians, and is equipped with 16 beds, two of which are situated inside of state-of-the-art trauma bays. The facility is outfitted with the latest diagnostic imaging technology, including CT and X-ray, and offers laboratory and respiratory therapy services, as well as a negative air pressure room for patients who need to be isolated.

It is the first facility of its kind in the Wildwood area and is located directly across from Brownwood Paddock Square in The Villages®.

Luckily, they were not broken, just brused on the left foot and a bad sprain on the right foot.

Today, Sunday, January 2nd, both feet are black and blue. The medical report said the right foot was too swollen and a break might not show up for a few days. I was instructed to come back for a second x-ray if I was still having problems. My right foot was the worst. If you are familiar with RV toilets, the flush peddle is near the floor and I use my right foot to flush. OUCH!

God Bless, Stay Safe, Be Kind to Every Kind and be careful out there. Stupid accidents can happen.
