Must be an epidemic here
In October my next door neighbor fell off a bottom step of a ladder and landed on her lawn and broke her hip.
A couple of weeks later, I turned my ankle and broke a bone in my foot. Had to have surgery to get a plate put in my foot.
Today a friend fell off a ladder while she was stripping wall paper in her kitchen. Broke 2 bones in her left foot and one in her right wrist. She lives alone and had planned to go out of state next week to help her sister who is having surgery.
