Take care of yourself Mac. Hope your recovery is speedy and the rib pain is under control.

If you don't like the food, have more wine!

My DH has a heart attack in 1993. We both quit smoking cold turkey and neither have had a cigarette since. I was very tempted, but neither of us wanted to be the one who went back to it. I am very glad today that we did it, especially with the price of cigarettes.

Just don't smoke the next cigarette.

doesn't sound too good, Mitch.. I think the pain on your chest is an agreeable thing when you consider the alternative....
Hope you get well soon and can have a long life!
LiGruess cara ~~~ Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO what a ride!"

The paramedics gave me CPR...saved my life, but broke the hell out of a bunch of my ribs...I haven't been able to sleep, because no position I tried to sleep in bed didn't cause me pain. I actually tried sleeping my desk chair last night. That didn't work

Fortunately, I saw my primary care doctor today and he prescibed me some pain meds, and they are working well...so I can sneeze without almost blacking out from the pain. :) Looking forward to a good night sleep tonight.

Do take care and do what the Doctor tells you until you'r better.
