Hey, WE b OLD and other funny folks. I messed around and broke my back. The spinal cord is intact but a lot of messed up nerves on my left side. Sometimes the pain is much more than I can stand, don't want to take pain med's for fear of addiction. Will have back surgery on 15 March at Celebration Hospital near Disney. Surgeon is using robotics and they get me up right away if things go right. Need Jerry and TC on hand to fix the machine if something breaks down. I need some Jokes and happy stuff like WE b OLD and the rest of you send out. I'm flat on my back for 23 hours a day. It seems that some good ol' Stovebolt jokes or anything will help. I read a lot and dream a lot. My last project a 54-3100 is on hold again. Doc.

All I can say, and I freely share this kind of thing to all of my friends when trouble befalls them. We always have to look at the bright side.
"At least it wasn't me."
Hope this helps... smile

Hey! Get well soon!

I certainly hope you get better soon. I'll tell you a story about how my mother broke her back.

My mother and her husband Don (my step-father if you will) like to drive up into the hills / mountains of western Washington State. They are out galivanting around and Mom needs to take a pee break. She tells Don to find a place to stop. He pulls over at a wide spot in the road, and she traipses down the hill side in search of an adequate log. As fate would have it, she tripped over a root, and commenced to "running" down the now fairly steep hillside. In front of her is a fallen tree. She realizes that she is going to stop and it is going to hurt... its just a matter of how bad its going to end up. The inevitable collision occurs. She takes note that all of her extremities still work, good sign. There is some pain that wasn't there before, but not too much. She manages to get up and begins the now long hard climb back to the road. She gets to the car and Don is kind of speechless because of her disheveled appearance. She said two words. "Hospital, NOW".

She ended up with a broken wrist, three cracked vertebrae, and a lot of bumps and bruises. She also forgot to pee.


Another quality post.

The trick is to try to take your mind off the injury. Thinking positive thoughts is one way, or you can choose a more dramatic one, like hurting something else so badly you forget about the back problems. While I can't really recommend this approach, I can testify that it really does work! It was four days after a motorcycle wreck that almost tore my left foot off, broke five ribs, separated my left shoulder, and gave me a case of road rash from nose to toes, when the ambulance driver who was transporting me to a rehab facility informed me that I also had a damaged vertebra. I had mentioned that my back was hurting, and he said "Yeah, most people with a broken back say that!" It seems the doc who spliced my leg back together with a bunch of external fixtures and rods screwed into the bones had sort of forgotten to mention the other stuff that was wrong with me. After two weeks of mostly lying flat on my back while the swelling in my leg and foot went down, they wheeled me back into surgery to put the hardware INSIDE my leg! Then there was six months of physical and occupational therapy to accomplish.

When I walked back into the orthopedic doc's office for a 6-month follow-up visit using nothing but a cane, he did a double take and commented- - - -"You're WAY ahead of schedule!" Now I ride a Harley instead of a Honda Gold Wing- - - - -it's lighter weight, and a lot closer to the ground in case I have to get off in a hurry! Of course, since it took me 55 years of riding bikes to have my first bad accident, doesn't that mean it's going to be 55 more years before the next one happens? I hope so!

Hang in there and get well soon!

Oh yeah- - - -about that joke- - - - -

An old mountain man hiked downhill to the nearest town to his cabin way back in the woods, and marched into a dentist's office. After a quick examination, the dentist informed him that he had an abscessed tooth, and if needed to be pulled. "Sonny, I knew that three days ago when I left home- - - - -pull that thing!"

"Well, you'll need some Novocain to ease the pain- - - -"

"Nope, I don't need no painkillers- - - -I've only been hurt twice in my life!"

The dentist pulled, and tugged, and twisted on the stubborn tooth, and finally gave it a big yank and snatched it out- - - - -the old-timer never whimpered, and didn't shed a tear. The dentist said, "I KNOW that had to be painful- - - -if that didn't hurt you, I'd like to know what ever did!"

"Well sonny, it was back in the blizzard of 1952- - - -10 below zero, snowdrifts everywhere, and everything froze up, including the door to the outhouse- - - -I had to hang my bare bum over a fallen log back in the woods to do my business. I forgot about the bear trap I'd set there, and it grabbed me by the privates! That's the first time I've ever been really hurt!"

"I understand- - - -uhhhh- - - -you mentioned being hurt twice- - - -what was the second time?"

"About five seconds later- - - - -when I ran out of chain!"
LOL!

My English teacher said that the art was in swearing and cussing at someone without them even realizing it. Yes, she was THAT good.

Little girl by back fence digging a 2'x2'x1' deep hole. Neighbor looks over fence and asks "What are doing?" Little girl replies she is burying her canary. Neighbor says her canary is tiny so why the large hole? Little girl "because it's inside your *%#&@ cat!"
