Update: kidney stone was more fun.

Ok, so I got T-boned by a guy going 50 mph. He went through the red light. Airbags went off. When I came to in the car, heard animal like grunting noises. After a few seconds, I realized the sounds were coming from me. That's when I realized I was in a world of sh*t.

Then I smelled and saw smoke coming up at me from my dash. I thought, "no way I'm catching on fire" so I tried my caved in door-- jammed. I pulled my legs out from the steering wheel and shakily over the middle column, and out the other door. Some good Samaritans stopped and helped me to the ground. It was pouring rain, and I soaked to the skin in cold water. The people around me, all strangers, covered me with coats, blankets, called my wife, and called the ambulance.

In the hospital, they found bruises up my left side, lung contusion, torn left kidney, bleeding adrenal, internal bleeding, and concern was raised for an injury to the wall of the aorta.

My wife and transferred to the university hospital. The angiogram was negative, thank G-d. My internal bleeding stopped. They decided I could eat (43 hours without), and get out of bed.

I was later sent home. Stiff, bruised, sore to cough, but feeling lucky and thankful to G-d.

Then, last evening, I sneezed suddenly and was introduced to a whole new world of pain; I think I broke a couple of weakened ribs with the sneeze. Passing my kidney stone a few weeks ago was piece of cake compared to the new rib pain.

Anyone got suggestions for dealing with rib fractures?

Thank you for your kind comments and suggestions.

    "As opposed to other parts of the body that can rest when they are injured, it is very important to take deep breaths to prevent pneumonia when rib fractures are present. The treatment for bruised and broken ribs is the same: ice to the chest wall, ibuprofen as an anti-inflammatory, deep breaths and pain medication. Even if all goes well, there will be significant pain for four to six weeks."

    Notice it says anti-inflammatory _and_ pain medication. A lot of folks use NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatories such as naproxen sodium and ibuprofen for pain, but here you want to use both. If you have any stomach issues at all, be sure to take the naproxen sodium (Aleve/Naprosyn/etc.) or ibuprofen with some food.

  2. Don't sneeze, friend! ;-) If you do and it hurts, the pain means you're still with us.

    It's important to live at least long enough to breathe air free of the stench of the feds!

  4. Confucious say: Man who drive biggest vehicle will not get as hurt as the other fellow. It is important to be sure the other vehicle IS the crumple zone not your ribs etc. etc.

    Rest well friend!!! Don't worry about the blog for a few days, just get well! Use the close call to reflect on what your maker wants you to do. I am glad you are still with us. Never ever underestimate the good influence you can have on others. I'll pray fo you!

    able to generate a few smaller self-desired adjustments to the idea (for that lighting fixtures or simply a
    design) and also dress in the exact same to your marriage ceremony.
    You can go to the traditional departmental store, bridal shops
    etc. Make any changes by using in or letting out the material at symmetrical
