Injured Reserve. Took a fall at the ranch yesterday. BL hauled me to the emergency. Pleurisy from a broken rib has some pain involved. 2 Vicodin with 2 ibuprofen every 4 hrs takes the edge off. So I got to sit around till BL gets off work [we should make this permanent] so she can do the heavy stuff at the ranch. :cowboy:

Wow that must have been quite a tumble to crack ribs. Have you got ice mixed in with your snow as we do and is that part of what caused your tumble? Knock wood I haven't fallen yet this winter but I fell so many times last winter that I was begining to believe that I was developing balance problems but evidently it was just poor judgement on my part for working outside and doing chores on the ice and snow. Be careful when you go out to supervise the BL so you don't aggrevate your injury further. Good luck on your recovery. JLP

I was climbing over a gate, to big a hurry to open it. The gate was ice covered from a little rain the night before. Slipped going over the top, no problem I'll just fall right :???: Put out my right arm to break the fall my hand slipped and my right elbow did the damage. I knew right away I broke something. I'm pruty crippled up right now. St Paul kids are on their way to help. :clap: The BL is in charge. :welcome:

Oh yeah, wishing you all the best in 09.

I cracked a rib exactly 4 years ago yesterday...at 11:30 p.m. It was in conjunction with a New Year's Eve celebration...involved my nephew's electric scooter and a caliche road.

Anyway, I don't think I've ever had anything hurt longer than a cracked rib. I understand that any kind of rib injury takes forever to get over, pain wise.

Heal, and be healthy, mnm!

Alice

He he he... :clap: I always hear stories of how people your age mnmt break a hip or ribs and never fully recover.. :lol2:
Use this time to take advantage of the RR it will not last long,,hope you recover soon.. :)

You are right about the ribs Alice. I broke 2 and cracked 3 in Dec. 04, well to be fair I didn't but Brightstar did, it's amazing what damage a 1600lb Holstein can do when she backs into you and smushes you into panels.. :cry2: Every time they started to heal they got so goshdarn itchy that I would have to stretch out to re open them,,they took at least 6 month to heal .Feeding was the worst, getting in and out of the tractor ,,I thought I was going to die.. :help:

Happy New Year everyone.. :tiphat:

Glad you are OK. Maybe you can start a worldwide trend on this staying home stuff. I like the idea. Not the pain part just the lounging around part. If you lived a bit closer I'd bring you a little service bell I used when I was layed up a few months. (Your wife would love it :lol2: )

A cow cracked some ribs for me several years ago. I dragged myself to the doctor, and they took x rays.
I just want to say that if you can climb onto that cold steel table and lie still for the x ray, you will likely survive. That was painful.

Ouch! What a bummer. I went down yesterday but just a little whiplash pain today, went down fast and landed across a snowbank. Dang ice! Sorry you broke your arm, hope you heal fast.

Somebody gave it to me as a gag and come to think of it ... it went missing after a day or so.

Boy, does this sound familiar. I have lifted and hauled at least half a ton of mineral and calved 45 head since the rib breaking episode around here. Hope you are feeling well soon---for your wife's sake too.

For some reason I have this visualization in my head about you laying on the couch all wrapped up in a quilt and those two labs of yours laying down beside you waiting, wondering and hoping. Does this look familiar?
