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!

Take Care

Well no wonder it was so sore! I feel for you having to go through yet more pain to get your body right again. I hope it's not too bad this time.

So pleased that you are feeling up during all this due to so many other nice things. Life is such a funny thing at times. Enjoy it! And best of luck tomorrow.
