Well, it is official, I do have another broken bone. This one is in my left foot.  It has started to heal, but I am now back on the walker or crutches.  It is hard to walk with my left foot fractured and my right hip flred up with bursitis.  All of this because of me, the big dummy, wanted to have a yard sale.  I just over worked my joints.  I have spent more on dr. appts and meds, than I made at my yard sale. mad
The Ortho dr. said he could put a cast or brace on my foot.leg, but my legs are really big and I have a small foot. so it is just best to let it like it is and stay off it as much as possible.  But this is my 3rd or 4th fractured in my lower extermities in a year.  I am not counting the rib fractures I get by coughing or lifting. I think I am going to eliminate all words in the dictionary that ends in "itis" (arthritis, osteoaritis, gastratis, etc) eyes
Now I have a question for all those out there.  I am looking for an adult tricycle to buy.  I think I can ride it without falling off.  I need to do some serious weight loosing and bike riding would be good for me.  I have my old bike from when I was a child over 40 years old. But my balance is off and I am terrified I will fall and really brake a hip. So if anyone out there  knows of an adult trike, I would greatly appreicate an email to I figure I will be able to find one in an area that has a large retirement population or snowbirds camping.  Thanks for listening.  This sight has been a large help to me.

Here is a list of my meds. I keep trying to decrease or eliminate some but then I get sick again.
