Few things can ruin your holiday festivities faster than an unexpected trip to the emergency room. While accidents will happen, St. Luke’s emergency medicine physician Adam Colombo, DO, says you can reduce your risk by knowing some of the more common holiday mishaps and how to avoid them.
As a senior, memories have become more precious to me than ever! I place visual reminders on every wall space I can find in my home and, yes, on my refrigerator. As I walk into my kitchen, the refrigerator “gallery” pulls me in, forcing me to stop, to look, to smile, to giggle, and even to relax from the anxieties of the world.
One of the best things about the holidays is gathering with your family for a huge feast. Grandma’s turkey, stuffing, and mashed potatoes bathed in gravy, your favorite aunt’s pumpkin pie — not to mention weeks of holiday cookies. And while that all feels great going into your mouth, it may send you on a trip to the emergency room (ER).
In his 1943 painting, Freedom from Want, Norman Rockwell captured what many people can only hope for their holiday gatherings. The painting shows whom we presume are Grandma and Grandpa, presenting a beautifully-roasted turkey. Gathered happily around the table are three generations of family members smiling at one another.
