So..........

Just over a week ago, my Kaz was in a little 'altercation' in the nearby Supermarket - Long story short, coming into contact with a child who thinks he can fly on a shopping trolley like Superman [i]can[/i], and indeed [i]will[/i], lead to broken ribs...

OUCH!

She's not had to be hospitalised, thank goodness, as really there's not much that you can do for a broken rib...except keep breathing, keep moving, keeping taking the drugs...

So...Lil ol' me has been doing the - literally - heavy lifting in the relationship this last week and, again, thank goodness, Kaz has been able to go to work....

They say it takes around 8 days before the ribs start to knit back together after a break and the pain gets less....so she's on the mend.

Just to apologise to anyone that has not heard anything from me. I have been incommunicado for a reason....

Now....what [i]did[/i] I miss?

why don't the doctors operate and reset the ribs properly lined up? always wondered about that. the doctors will operate and put a pin in and line the ribs up properly for an NFL football player with broken ribs but the Quack doctors won't line up the ribs of the average person. 馃樅

[@487102,trackboy] Think about it; the ribs are part of the ribcage....the ribcage? That expands and contracts as you breathe, so that makes it uncomfortable to breathe if you've broken one...or two...chances are, with these great big linebackers they're breaking more than one or two....

Being pinned? That means evasive surgery, which means more recovery time....

Feeling her ribcage (it's a hard job, but somebody has to do it, right? LOL!) nothing feels disjointed or she's not been coughing up blood or anything, so she'll be fine....

Actually, she's much better today....

[@1146285,SammyJo] the rib cage will never be right if the ribs are not lined up. why are there different classes of care for NFL football players than there are for the rest of us? I'm sure the rich also get their ribs set properly. 馃樅
Ouch. Hope she has a quick recovery.

[@346344,PicturesOfABetterTomorrow] She'll be ok....Thanks hun...
