It’s a typical Monday night, BBQ chicken for dinner, finishing up some projects around the house, waiting for Hope to get home from work. Hope works late Monday nights, gets home around 9:30PM. Well, its past 9:30, so I am getting a little concerned, and then I hear, “Brian help me, I fell off the front steps”! OMG, she did.
Got Hope into the house, she had a huge bump on the back of her head, next stop.
The staff at the hospital were terrific, they took great care of Hope. After a few tests and consultations, we were able to return home with a giant ice bag on the back of her head.
So, What Happened?
Hope took off from work the next day, better safe than sorry. I had to piece together what caused her fall. It did not rain that night, no snow, no ice, no frost, no nothing. I took the handle of a broom stick and started pounding the brick steps where she fell. The pounding made a hollow sound, I think I found the problem!!
I cannot Believe It!
This is what the brick steps looked like when they were installed years ago.
Every two years I power washed the steps and added binding sand as required.
