A neighbor slipped on ice and broke a leg
I found out yesterday that a neighbor a few houses down the street slipped on ice in front of her house, and she broke a leg when she fell. It was a pretty bad break, and she had surgery on her leg. She is young, probably in her 30s, and should have healthy bones, so she must have landed pretty hard. I think I was blessed when I slipped on ice a year ago. I bruised my buttocks and back, but I didn't have any broken bones. It did, though, take about three months for the bruises to heal. I'm posting about my neighbor as a reminder to all of us to be careful during the winter.
