Bad Karma?

One wonders.

Overall, I feel SO much better. Except . . . I seem to have broken a rib. Coughing. Rather painful. So painful, in fact, that I almost drfited to sleep mopping the kitchen floor.

I am home studying for finals next week. I googled "broken rib" and see that I can expect it to take six weeks to heal. Because, unfortunately, one has to keep breathing ~ so ribs get no rest. I'll be through the next set of midterms by then. In fact, I'll be home for Christmas.

I've been thinking that I'd like very much to be on retreat at Guelph. Instead, I am about to crawl into bed with my Greek and history materials. A photo will have to do.

Yikes! Prayers and best wishes for a speedy recovery.

Ouch! Injury to insult - I'd say.

I think we will have a giant celebration for you as we usher out 2007 and sweep the bad karma out with it.

I'd say "feel better soon" but that hasn't done any good so far.

Yikes. Sending healing thoughts your way, GG. My dh broke ribs in a bicycling accident last summer and it did take a long time to heal.

Oh, I hate to hear that, GG. I broke a bone in my back during a coughing spell earlier this year. Not fun. You are SO in my prayers.

(I noticed that someone has heard from Cynthia's daughter, btw. That's good news.)

Ow! Ow! Ow! Are you taped up now to help with the pain and healing?

Bless your heart. I'll be you get an A's on your mid terms because of the desire for distractions. Oh that and because you've studied.....

Oh, GG, how much stress you are under, plus pain and illness. I am so sorry. You are in my prayers. (((GG)))
