A big word for such a small thing...


Today's word is Costochondritis.

That's what the doc said I have.
She said I tore [ripped, shredded pieces of] my sternum's cartilage.
Yes, it hurts and it will take approximately 6 weeks to start...
un-hurting.

Guess no riding for me for a bit.
Shhh, don't tell hubby. I'll still go for walks when I start feeling a whole lot better!

Looks like a lot of rain this week anyway and by the time I get out and about again, the snow may be a thing of the past.

What a way to 'bring' in Spring.

I'll be as careful as possible. My doc put me on light duty for work, so I can't carry anything more than 5# for at least a week or so.

Yes, follow your doctors orders ... even tho it may be difficult! I have learned the hard way. I re-fractured my ribs (stupidity) and am now starting the healing process over from day one. Whatever you do, as you start to feel better, do not think that all is well. Healing takes time.
Try to be a patient-patient!

I am sorry about your injury. you will heal quickly because you will want to be back in the saddle.

Oh dear! I hope you are healed up sooner than later. I can only imagine how uncomfortable, err painful, that is.
