Complete recovery from injury

Many years ago my husband and I traveled to Europe to visit my sister and her husband, who was stationed there in the military. We spent Christmas and New Year’s in their home, and after the holidays we all set off together to ski at various locations in Europe. 

On the last part of our trip, we were walking through a large city from one train station to another, carrying our skis over our shoulders and wearing heavy backpacks. The streets were icy and I suddenly slipped, but rather than falling, I was able to stay on my feet and right myself by force. 

That night we reached my sister’s home, and I fell asleep on her couch. When I awoke, I could not sit up, and my back was in terrible pain. I was finally able to get to bed but just lay there in the dark, thinking how horrible it was to feel incapacitated far from home. Fears rushed in: Is this how our wonderful trip is going to end, without being able to see any more of Europe? Will I have to be carried onto the plane to get home?
