Campaign appearances cancelled today-injuryI must inform regular readers and campaign supporters that I am in the regretful position of having to cancel my scheduled appearances today. The reason is that I may have a serious injury, though we are not yet sure.
On Sunday evening I took a fall, and bumped the side of my head very hard against a table in our home. The spot where I hit my head swelled up pretty badly, but I put some ice on it for about two hours and the swelling seemed to go down quite a bit. I awoke the next morning with a puffy spot on the side of my head and a couple of pretty pronounced red marks, but I thought that was going to be the end of it. I carried on a regular schedule, made phone calls, and put in a listening appearance at Adair Park.
This morning I woke up and the side of my head was (and still is) hurting when I squint to smile or laugh-but not only that, I woke up with a giant black eye, even though I did not hit my eye-it is swollen and it is rapidly getting blacker. At the very least, I may have a concussion, and I am not sure how serious it is. I'll be seeing the doctor today-I will let you know what he says. I know this could negatively affect the campaign, especially since we have no volunteers to canvas the district for us-but I must look to my health first and I am unsure what the problem is.
I am asking all readers who believe in prayer to please pray for me.
