We were at our cottage over the weekend and the neighbors invited us over for a cookout. They have two huge yellow labadors they came up behind me and knocked me to the ground. I tried catching myself but ended up flat on my stomach elbows and chin. It will be 6 weeks tomarrow that I had my TT, all I could think of was getting up and seeing blood on my shirt. Fortunetly nothing came open but I have 2 nice bruises on my incision, I called in this morning and they said as long as its not open and doesnt hurt bad I should be OK, and to keep moist heat on which I am anyway for the fluid  Im still carring around. I was so worried abount internal injuries but she said its probably just bruised, thanks GOD. Deb

How scary for you.  Glad you just have bruises, they should heal fairly quickly.

So sorry for your injuries.  It would scare me to death if I fell right now.  I hope everything is okay for you.

Thanks I really appreciate all the concern, I still cant belive that happened to me. I felt my stomach hit the ground and OH my god I was scared.Deb
on 6/11/12 2:39 pm - AL worst fear right now! I have two Giant Schnauzers, and they can get pretty crazy at times. I kept my male put up all day today, just because I had to leave the house and I was afraid he might run up behind me and "paw" me. He's well-trained, but bad about wanting to "touch" everything with his paw. He's also afraid of bad weather, and the weather has been awful all weekend (my TT was on Thursday). 

I hope you are only bruised, but thanks for the reminder that I have good reason to be cautious around the Giants until I'm well-healed. Feel better soon.
