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" !

Take Care

Oh yeah, that's crap alright! How blimmin awful for you. Sorry especially about that surgery coming up soon. Sounds painful in a couple of areas. Poor you! Eat lots of chocolate to make you feel better.

Hello dear lady...sorry to read about your broken body. I have one also so I totally understand...I have a back with a broken T12 which tho it's now healed more than 14 yrs I have daily pain in my back and according to my orthopedic doctor will prob continue the rest of my life.....sigh. But I agree that I am still alive and able to move around and that's wonderful :) I am hoping and praying that your body and boo boos on your ribs are healed up with as much pain as possible removed.
