I'm so sorry. I remember how much it hurt to breathe and coughing was too painful.

Let people wait on you! I bet the cookout will go great but let the company help...you know you'd do the same if the circumstances were reversed.

You cracked a rib from coughing? Didn't know that was possible! How awful, best of luck with your recovery.

Be careful not to do too much and end up with a punctured lung from that broken rib!!! Oh, and if people tease you about tripping or falling, tell them that heavy air is invisible!!

Please take care of yourself. Don't over do.I still have some pain from my hip replacement last Fall..but as some of the members who were on here at that time know I had to come home and be a caregiver to my DH. I didn't have the time to relax and heal. Even though I had almost 3 weeks in the rehab. hospital..They don't let you rest ! Dove
May I always be the person my dog thinks I am.

Connie, so sorry about your fall and the results. I won't hug you but will give you a pat on the back to help you remember to take it easy. I believe that my falls have contributed to my having arthritis, but the water exercises are really helping me to have better balance and be more agile. I've always been one to start everything at breakneck speed and am finding out that isn't very smart, so I suppose you can teach an old dog new tricks. Hope you will slow down a bit and be very careful.

I hope you aren't too shaken up and that your rib heals quickly.

Heal quick and don't cough or laugh to much. Take care and for your sake don't over do it.

Oh no... poor poor Connie!!
I was one of those lucky ones who has never broken any bones in my life (though I have twisted my wobbly ankles just a few too many times than I care to remember... once I even did it while simply just walking... on a perfectly flat street with a pair of trainers on!... So I could well be your Ms. Graceful twin...), I can't imagine what kind of pain you must suffer!!

But do take it easy, and I really think you should have the rib looked at... you definitely don't want the broken anything to set incorrectly. And yes, make sure to eat plenty of cheese!!
Hope you will heal soon and feel better...
(((Hugs))) ... but not too hard...

Sorry to hear about your accident. I hope it heals quickly and doesn't interfere too much with what you have to do.
