    Hello Barbara.... I too wish you a good recovery and rest. 3 summers ago I fractured some ribs so I know how you are felling right now. I was hanging flowers with a step stool, out on my deck. The hook over the porch swing was easier to reach if I stood on the swing. I did the very thing I would tell anyone else not to do. The swing tilted and threw me out and I hit the side of the house , then swing came back around and clocked me one. Had it been a comedy I would have laughed myself sick. Pure stupidity on my part. My little dogs sat on the deck next to me till I got up to call my husband to come home. The dogs are black but for a few moments it looked like they turned white with fright, lol. Seriously tho it does scare dogs a lot when you get hurt. Fractured ribs really hurt. I spent the rest of the summer watching all the seasons of 3 and a half men. Laughing isn't really a cure. I do wish you a speedy recovery and a much quieter summer . It's wonderful your daughter was home, and that she saved your life. May the gods bless and watch over you and your family.

    Oh Barb!

    I'm so sorry about your experience. I hate your summer plans are being rescheduled! Prayers for speedy healing! Enjoy your craftsy classes. It will be a great time to get organized for some simple crafting.

    I am so sorry to hear that you are having to rest. i know you don't want to, but you must. no dry walling or much of anything for a few weeks. Do not rush it. I keep seeing commercials for meds with side effects of breathing problems. swelling of the throat isn't anything to ignore. i do feel for you. i have spasms that stop my breathing. i cough like a crazy woman but always come out of it. so far without help. My Doctor said if i did faint, i would be fine. He says! falling is hard too!
    keep your feet up and ask someone for more Iced tea!! and chat with us! that is all girl.

    I hope your ribs heal quickly and you're back at your remodeling project. In the meantime, rest and relax. Glad the situation was not worse.
