    "Life before the fractures was busy because, basically, I run the household with groceries, laundry, housekeeping, cooking and planning for social activities. I also belong to several groups/clubs, I walk long distances everyday for exercise. My injury happened so fast, I really don’t know exactly how it all happened. But here is my best guess. So, I have osteoporosis and my bones break very easily. We were having a dinner party celebrating the holidays. When I went to get up from the ...
