Welcome to the club!!

Cracked ribs can really hurt, can't they??

I used the snowblower, shovelling wasn't happening with the ribs and hand.

It may be 26 but I don't think we are going to get any because rain always avoids our house!

Well, since I don't live down around DFW anymore, and as such have no plans to be driving to or from the metroplex, there probably won't be the nasty snow and ice storms that always seemed to hit the area when I need to be driving...



At least up here it's expected, and dealt with accordingly...

we got as few inches yesterday, with a few more expected tomorrow. normally, i love snow. everything about it. making snowmen and snowwomen (do you know how to tell the difference? ), igloos and snow forts, snowball fights, skiing and snowshoeing. i even like shovelling it, snow i mean , but with a fractured and a few sprained ribs, it was a little tougher than usual this time.
on the upside, i'm looking forward to going out shopping this week to get my boy his first sled. i've saved up a couple of old candles to wax the runners.
Bucky... I didn't know that you'd hurt yourself!
OUCH!!! Take care.

Smiles, Trish

Just wait, the best is yet to come!!

In a few weeks, they won't nearly be healed enough, but they'll be at the stage where you'll kind of forget about it, and then do somthing like grabbing the floor jack to change a tire, and....

Hope you feel better soon - and don't do what I did to take your mind off of your ribs - stitches in your finger aren't any better!!

pain is my friend, pain is my friend....

it's only a hairline fracture, so the doc said there was nothing to do but let it heal. he offered a prescription for pain killers and anti-inflammants, but i don't like taking pills. so he said to keep hot compresses on it, and take advil.

so i went home, put a cat on my ribs, and had a few duffs. doc hibbert's orders. (hmo - the hibbert moneymaking organization )

OW! How did you crack your ribs? BTW, cat and Duff sounds like an "excellent" prescription. May I also recommend a shot of brandy in the evening? Works wonders for a wrecked back, so I think it would help the ribs. Oh, and try bracing yourself when you sneeze or cough. Press a pillow over the cracked ribs or even just your hand and lightly apply pressure. Thats what they tell you to do with an abdominal incision when you sneeze. Works pretty well, I didn't lose any internal organs anyway.
