Okay, typical guy.
There was a buildup of ice on the roof. I went up a ladder to chop away some big icicles. A big chunk broke away, hit me, knocked me off the ladder. I fell about 10-12 feet, hit the snow-covered walkway.
Bruises and cuts. Swelling at wrist. Painful bruise under thumbnail. The worst is my left knee. Hard to get up or down from chairs/the couch. Slow walking, uncomfortable to stand. Fortunately, I'm off work this week.
I'm waiting to see if the pain continues; if so, I'll go to the immediate care place for an x-ray.
Didn't tell the wife. She worries a lot, voices it frequently. If she knows I fell, she'd never let me forget it.
Pax et bonum
