Update to Me and My Broken Body!

Well crap I say!

sourced from www.CartoonStock.com

Yesterday I went to a see a Cardiothoracic Surgeon about my broken body! I had to Google what a Cardiothoracic Surgeon does! haha

He was a very nice man who had the most divine antique Partners Desk!  Anyway I got kind of good news and kind of bad news from him!

I can do anything I like with this broken body cos I can't damage the ribs anymore than they are;
and I have to have regular massages for the severed nerve endings :-)

The BAD NEWS is:
the severed nerve endings will never completely heal so I will have some level of pain for the rest of my life;
and I'm probably going to have some quite nasty surgery in February to rebuild the broken ribs by using bone grafts from my hip :-(

But the real GOOD NEWS is:

I'm still able to walk and I'm alive!

Right? Yep as my man would say "DAMN STRAIGHT" !

Me and My Broken Body

I'm only a day late with this post! Hopeless! lol

Back in July I blogged here that I fell off a ladder painting the edge of the 12ft ceiling in the Princess's new bedroom and apparently broke two ribs. Because the ribs were broken in my back and lots of nerve endings severed I had to spend 6 weeks doing practically nothing, no bending, no stretching, no lifting and no driving. Frankly it was a very painful time, a lot of which was spent in a drug induced haze!

The Princess's new room hasn't progressed much, my brother finished painting it and Mum moved some furniture into it, but it still looks like this mess, I have yet to finish the curtains and she is yet to sleep in it!

And my ribs, after 4 months and constant pain, I found out a week ago that I actually broke 5 of them, NOT 2, and 3 have not healed at all. Tomorrow I am off to a surgeon which frankly is scaring the crap out of me.

Cos one way or another I am going to have another long healing period of inaction!

Despite this, which is a pain in the ...... back ..... strangely life has been very, very good for me, in fact the best it has been for a good few years! lol

Anyway gotta go, stuff to do, back tomorrow with my next update!

French Maid at 85th Birthday Party! lol
It's been months since I did a post, way too long for me!

I can't fill you in on what's been going on over the last few months in just one blog post cos that would be one long crazy ramble!!!

So I thought I would break my goings on into lots of crazy rambling posts with the following headings! lol

Me and my Broken Body
Me and my Broken Body and University
The Princess and her Mummy with the Broken Body
The Castle and the lady who lives in it with the Broken Body
Food I've been cooking while having a Broken Body
Family and Friends occasions with a Broken Body
My Secret Project planned while having a Broken Body
The New Man in my Life found while having a Broken Body

and whatever other random shizzle I can come up with!

So with that in mind, my mind anyway....

I'll be back - tomorrow!
