Oh, taxy, I'm so sorry. That happened to a friend of mine. Did they at least give him some pain meds? Or something to help him sleep?

Thanks GG. Nope, no pain meds, but we have AC&C (aspirin with codeine and caffeine). If that isn't good enough, he'll call our GP and ask her to fax a 'script to the pharmacy. I'm still boggled that he could break a rib by coughing.

I learned a new term in French today. Omni-practicien(ne) = General practitioner. I like that term.

Did they at least give him anything for the coughing? I would say give him a hug, but not this time. A kiss on the cheek will do just fine.

Thanks, Linda.
And Stirling broke a rib from coughing?! That must have been some cough.

Both my mother and I broke ribs coughing. It is not pleasant at all and they don't want to give you too much for the cough because it could keep congestion in the chest.

I'm still nursing sciatica, but it is better than all the other stuff I have been through. I did make it to the pool for my walk (thanks to PF). It is mainly bad when I sit so I am getting some things done then laying down for a quick rest.

I am also watching the women's world curling championship, where Canada is in good shape for a gold medal

Amazing. I had no idea a person could break a rib coughing.
Note to self: Do not cough. Ever.

No, no, no! You don't want to get pneumonia.

Taxy, please give Stirling our best for quick healing!

It happens usually when you have a deep chest cough with bronchitis or pneumonia, or even just a chest cold.

And I felt more comfortable doing it myself anyway. I've come too far to let someone screw it up.

Here it is after initial polishing and fitting. Making sure everything fits before I give it a final finish.
It's beautiful, Pac!
