    You have my pity. Cracked two ribs at a football game in a cold drizzle. Slipped on the wet bleachers. May have been due in part to a large Irish coffee.(it was cold).

    Watched the second half, then tried to drive home. Made it three miles and pulled into an ER. Gave the Xray tech a fit with all the aluminum shavings stuck to me that showed in the film(built 737s back then). Doc laughed at me and said it would hurt like heck, and Lortab was all he could do.

    You poor, sweet man. What a prince to help by doing the laundry. You should rest and just let the "honey do" list take a life of it's own.
    I wouldn't make fun of you for doing a nice thing while the wife is rescuing dogs. I think your actions are as noble as hers and I bet she knows it. (And I think what she is doing is pretty darn noble.)
    Rest up and I hope you feel better soon....but give yourself time to heal.

So here is a motherly kiss on your forehead. I am sure the wife will do better by you when she returns.)

    Mike, if you hate a house chore, tell your wife that you want to do it, embrace it and put all your energy behind it and..... screw the pooch big time. Repeat the whole process again and you will be forbidden by your wife to even attempt it anymore. However, do not try to bypass all house chores this way, save it for the really nasty ones. Otherwise she will either smell rat and kill you or think that her Mother was right when she told her she married an idiot indeed plus wonder if the single cute Dentist with the Mercedes and the condo in Boca Raton is still available. Take out the trash, feed the cats & clean the sand box...stuff like that.

    Mrs. Miggy will kneecap me if I even lay my eyes on the washer or the dryer. Mission Accomplished!

    Update!!

    Well, I just got back from my doctor and it seems I did a better job on myself than I gave myself credit for.

    I don't have just one cracked rib, I have FOUR!!

    That would tend to "splain" why I'm in so much pain.

    At least I got my meds bumped up a few notches. I got the special prescription with a serial number on it. I'm now on OXYCODONE, whatever the hell that is. I have a follow up appointment in two weeks. Until then, I'm sentenced to house arrest in my home theater.

    Thanks for the support and sympathy. And for those that made me LOL, I do have a looooooong memory.

    Ouch! No fun. It's been a long time since I broke anything and it wasn't nearly that bad.

    One word of advice: be really careful about the drugs. My younger brother got hooked heavy on vicodin after just a week of regular use. He's never done any drugs in his life, doesn't smoke, etc. After two weeks he was lying to doctors to get more drugs. It was scary to watch.

    Expect yourself to start rationalizing why you need more drugs. In my brother's case, withdrawal caused pain came back in the spot where he broke his foot, even after it had fully healed. He said that withdrawal was worse than the original injury.

    Oh damn, I hope you feel better soon, and I also hope your better half doesn't have a bone(rib) to pick with you.

    Short term oxycodone use should not be a problem, but watch it just the same.

    Remember to breathe, often rib fractures lead to pneumonia because patients 'guard' their breathing. Your Doc should have given you a breathing toy (spirometer) to play with.

    Sticks and stones ...

    When I was younger, friends and I did the ol' "operating room" skit when an older brother came home after having his appendix removed. He nearly busted a gut laughing, the poor guy. Little did we know how true that was.

    Take care, while you heal. Remember, 6wks+, just like any other bones. Breakfast on the couch, bed sores, achey butt, no laughing, movies until you're weeping for the feel of sunshine on your cheek. You know. I feel for ya.

    Just think. It could be worse.

    If you are going to laugh or sneeze take a pillow and wedge it under your arm (chicken dance style). Use your elbow to squeeze that pillow up against your ribs as hard as you can. This will help a little with the sneeze/laugh pain.

    Just whiz all over the seat a few times and she won't care if you leave it up anymore.

    Thanks Everyone for your well wishes! Gunny Bunny is in lots of pain but he'll get better with time. I've taken a few days off to help take care of him. And I'll make sure he doesn't get hooked on the Vicodin.

    For those wondering, our clothesline throne is a raised platform, 5 stair steps high, with the clothesline attached to a tree across the way. This came with the house. We do have an electric dryer but like to use the clothesline in the summer to cut down on the electric bill.

    BTW, the dog rescue trip had some hang ups with missing paperwork for the puppies and border crossing problems with Canadian Customs so the puppies are now in rescue in Olympia, WA

    I hate customs!!!

    Thanks again everyone
