So, as many of you already know, I wiped out snowboarding and broke my collarbone. This did not hurt as much as you would think. I liken it to being hit with a baseball bat once, very very hard: it immediately feels better NOT to be hit with a baseball bat. The initial x-ray did not look very good, with the clavicle broken in two places, but I’m told that they heal up. My next x-ray will be next week and I’m hoping that the doctor will tell me that the healing is going well. If not, I could be in line for an operation. So, I’ve been uncomfortable and increasingly cranky over the last 5 weeks, pecking at my keyboard like a half-wit crow.
Luckily, it was my left shoulder so I can still flip channels between hockey games and reruns of Friends to pass the time.
Special thanks to Andrea who has given me a ride to and from work for the past 5 weeks, I really appreciate it.
