I’d mentioned yesterday that I probably had cracked ribs from my fall a week ago.  So I was wondering why instead of getting better, I was hurting more.  So... back to the emergency room.  More x-rays.  Result?  Another break -- that’s the word the doctor used, break.  No wonder I feel lousy.  The doctor prescribed a different pain medication, which I will be taking.  Sure makes me sleepy.  He also gave me a gadget to improve my breathing.  That’s all I have for now.

A bit of humor--

I was on a date with this really hot model.  Well, it wasn’t really a date date.  We just had dinner and saw a movie.  Then the plane landed.

I asked my date what she wanted to drink.  She said, “I guess I’ll have champagne.”  I said, “Guess again.”

  1. I'm sending positive energy and healing thoughts your way. Try to have a restful weekend!

  2. I just got an email from a Norn Iron knitter who visited me in the spring to tell me her husband just broke his ribs when he slipped on the ice. He's in hospital for a few days because his oxygen levels are low. Miserable coincidence. Hope that gadget helps your breathing, and though it's good to smile, try not to laugh too much.

    Get well soon.

  3. I am glad you got it checked out, low oxygen levels are bad news. Hope the new breathing thing increases that O2, which will help your body heal swiftly.
