I'm late, I know

Yes. It's late Saturday morning. I didn't schedule a post to publish at 12:01 AM today. But these pain pills - which I waited ALL WEEK to take - make me groggy.

I bruised my ribs last week. I'm finding out that bone bruises take a long time to heal. And I NEEDED a good night's sleep. So I broke down and took the pills last night.

I don't think I'm going to do that anymore. I'm to punchy after I take them, and I can't think straight. And I sleep WAY TOO LONG.

But. I'm awake know. Just groggy, like I said.

And just so you don't worry, I'm okay. If you're worried, that is. Thanks.

I love you, too.

And Kelley, please don't mess with my head like that.

I can relate, I had two broken ribs about 16 years ago. I'm glad you're okay. Relax and enjoy your weekend.

Toodles~

Tash said...

Had no idea you were in all that pain Lou! Glad you got some sleep but I understand what you mean about not wanting to be that groggy!

Feel better!

moneythoughts said...

Take it easy, and get your rest.

Rebecca said...

Hi, Lou! Feel better...

Hi Lou,

take care of yourself.

I love pills that make me groggy, they enable me to slow down and relax.
I'm such a spinner at times.

Hi Lou,

Ouch - I know the pain - broke one of my ribs earlier this year - sleep is near impossible.
And the pain killers....o.k. if you don't have to function at all.

Hope you feel better soon, zinc is a good all round healer,

Oh, that is misery. I'm so sorry. Use the weekend to rest up!

Try to focus on breathing slowly and deeply, gently, so you don't get pneumonia. There's a good reason they don't strap up ribs anymore. they discovered it was better to breathe deeply.

w said...

That was me, anonymous. Now you know.

Elizabeth said...

Not the kind of ribs to enjoy AT ALL!! Rest well.

Sandy C. said...

Oh no! You've been such a trooper all this time, I had no idea you were still in so much pain. I'm so sorry.

Please rest up and take it easy this weekend mister.

OHmommy said...

Oh no.... take it easy these next couple of days.

Keep your wit in tack. How will we ever live w/o your wit? Take care of yourself, Lou.

maggie's mind said...

Oh, ouch, ouch, ouch! Please do rest and feel better.

Donna said...

Ugh... bruised ribs are sometimes worse than the actual broken ones (I think, anyway.) Glad you had the pills and got to get some good sleep.

As others have said, even though it hurts, try to keep breathing deeply so you don't get pneumonia.

I hope you heal quickly... feel better even quicker!

Eric S. said...

Oh that hurts. Take it easy and get some rest. What ever you do don't laugh.

Sorry, I had to throw that in.

Mike said...

I had 3 broken ribs 2 years ago and it took forever to heal. I'm glad you are doing ok. I know the pain is brutal if you laugh, sneeze, take a deep breathe and other things. Go slow.

Christy: Ah, but not as fine as you.

employee: Toodles, darlin'.

tash: Thank you. I will.

moneythoughts: Thanks, Fred, I will.

Rebecca: Hi, Reba!! I will.

warriorwoman: Spinner? Hmmmm.

myst_72: I just happen to have some zinc tabs. I'll see about them.

AFF: Thanks, Holly. I WOULD say it only hurts when I laugh, but that isn't quite true.

anonymous w: Who was that masked man (or woman, as the case may be.)?

elizabeth: No, I don't enjoy these ribs, at all. But thanks.

Sandy: Yes, ma'am. I hear and obey.

OHmommy: Thank you. That is very flattering.

maggies mind: I am resting just as fast as I can.

Donna: Thank you, veery much.

eric s: I'd be lying if I said it only hurts when I laugh - it just gets worse. But you knew that, didn't you?

mike: Yes, that I will do. I will go slow.

Since you're always free with a smooch for all your lovelies (albeit your smooches are usually for the bewbs), I'll send you a great BIG smooch for your ouchie ribs. And I'll let you cop a feel while I'm at it...if it takes rack shots to get lovin' I've GOT TO change my tactic!!

I'm really hoping your bruises heal quickly. Pain sucks.

Shadow said...

Nicole said...
