    Great that you have humour! I know from experience that busted ribs hurt like heck.

    I agree about ambulance rides and, believe me, in many rural areas of the UK it is impossible for the drivers to avoid the pot holes!

    A&E are brilliant whenever I have been taken it. Last time it was for concussion after a RTA. They were busy and as I lay there so I could hear a woman complaining about a cut on her finger. She kept on and on about it, obviously not serious as staff were rushing around with emergencies.
    I didn't want to stay so, as I was fully aware, got up and called for someone to pick me up. As I walked past the moaning woman with the cut, I looked at it and told her she was a pain in the arse and to go home and put a plaster on it as it was nothing (which it wasn't!) with that she stomped out. The nurse walking with me asked if I wanted a job!
    My advice to you is to take advantage of the help being freely given and don't laugh to often because that is the only time laughter brings pain!
    Oh, no hugs because that can hurt too!

    Come on guys you are doing it all worng!!!
    If you are going to injur yourself do it well enough to warrent an air ambulance!! No pot-holes then (oh and the paramedics tend to be better looking).
    I keep hoping that next time I end up in an air ambulance Prince william is the pilot! He does a lot of the air ambulance and search and rescue helicopters in north wales!

    Air ambulance, stroke of genius, although our hospital doesn't have a helipad yet, you get taken to the airport and then it's the ambulance the rest of the way.

    There is nothing like watching the Calgary Stampede while in hospital to make you feel like a whimp, listening to the injuries those guys ride with is just scary!

    Are you in hospital and eating jello? Jello really helps nails grow.

    Golden Horse I am glad you have a great outlook on life and can laugh at the mshaps you have encountered. That is a good sign.
    Keep laughing and you will keep healing.
    It is very evident your body may be broken but your mind is as sharp as ever. Shalom
