Romney recovering after weekend fall left him with stitches, bruises
"I went to CPAC. That was a problem," joked Romney.

Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, said Monday that he is recovering after a fall over the weekend knocked him unconscious and resulted in "a lot of stitches."

Romney was seen on Capitol Hill with a black eye and stitches above an eye and his lip. He told reporters that he "took a fall" while in Boston visiting his son and grandchildren.

He briefly pulled off his mask, showing a puffy and bruised upper lip.

"Yeah, I had kind of a tough, tough weekend. ... I went to CPAC. That was a problem," he joked, referring to the Conservative Political Action Conference in Orlando, Florida, where former President Donald Trump spoke Sunday. Romney voted to convict Trump in both of his impeachment trials, earning him the ire of Trump and his allies. Trump lashed out at Romney and other Republicans who voted to impeach or convict him during his speech Sunday.

Romney said he went to the hospital to get stitches but did not disclose whether he was admitted overnight.

"I asked the doctor how many stitches, and she said, 'I don't know,'" he said.

8. Who needs to fall?

McConnell, Hawley, Cruz.

Some universal justice needs to be distributed in the right places.

Sending healing thoughts to one of the few decent republicans out there.

9. Oh, dear.

As an older person myself, I get this.

About two weeks ago I slipped on the ice in my driveway. Wasn't sure at first I could get up, but was able to scooch myself onto the snow, where I had traction. Whew. Was able to get up. I still have some pain in my elbow from that fall

11. A couple of years ago, I had a fall on an icy walkway...

... it's a frightening (and painful) experience. It was waay early in the morning, just before sunrise, and nobody would have seen me or even heard me calling for help. After I got over the initial shock, I did the same as you. I just sort of kicked and wiggled until I could find traction on the snow.

I *thought* I was walking on 1/2" of snow on asphalt... but I'd forgotten that slippery solid ice sheets can exist BENEATH a layer of fresh snow.

Glad to know there were no broken bones. I hope you heal quickly!

Thank you for asking. I tend to heal very quickly, even at my age.
