Them's the breaks

  1. OK...I'm sure most of you have seen that shot on ABC "Wide World of Sports" where the skier goes carreening down the hill in a specatacular crash...

    Well, that's what I did in the house last week. Three fractures, an ORIF and 5 days in the hospital. So here I am, bedfast for the next 6weeks.

    Boy, does that hurt!! Anyway, I hope you guys can help keep me entertained here...there's only so much TV you can watch before you start actually hearing the brain cells die...LOL!

    And if I make a post that seems a little less than coherent, chalk it up to pain meds, please.

    Aw, man, fab4, that sucks! And you don't even get royalties!

    Check out this thread--we posted a bunch of fun stuff for Heather333 when she was laid up with her hurt ankle and bored witless.

    We'll try to keep you entertained. In return, feel free to post while you're--uh--under the influence, so we can be entertained too.

    Stargazer: Thanks for the suggestions!!

    Robin: Whatever happened to your dau? One trick that is sometimes used in the ED is to put a small drop of superglue on the end of a probe and then touch the FB...but if it was a big pebble, that might not work. And I do think that when the ED doc couldn't get it out, he should have immed. gotten an ENT consult (that's what we do, anyway)

    When I was in 1st grade, I went to school with a kid who had an earache, so he stuck a ***** willow bud in his ear...go figure.

    Right now all i wanted was someone to tell me "lay down in bed for the next weeks". I'm so tired i even dream about sleeping!

    I guess this didn't help at all.

    Did anyone get it on video? We're all kinda bored around here! Just kidding! That sounds aweful! I hope you recover soon! You'll be up to 5000 posts by the time you're healed!

    LV: Well, I refuse to be reduced to watching soaps...thank goodness there are reruns of "ER" and "Law and Order."
    (Sorry all you soap fans...just could never get into them).
