I was so bummed for you to see this on FB, but reading your slightly longer report here and thinking about how much worse it could have been...I'm really glad for you it wasn't worse. Hope you heal fast and come back feeling stronger for the enforced rest.

Thanks guys. I appreciate it, I am hoping for a quick recovery but will live vicariously through you all until then! :)

omg scary! Hope you heal quickly! But 2 weeks is extremely optimistic---four to six is what my friends told me when I broke a rib, and six seemed about right before I did stressful stuff. Hope you're sleeping well. That was the hardest part at first. The weirdest thing (and I had just a single broken rib---kinda wimpy) was that the most comfortable position was standing up, balanced normally, without touching anything else. If I leaned my shoulder against a wall, it hurt. But neutral, straight up, was tolerable. One guy with four broken ribs said he could only sleep (at first) face-down bent over an ottoman. Good luck!

From my injury:

my first rib comments: 2007-01-03 (fifth day of injury):

my final rib comments: 2007-03-17: I said it took 7 weeks:
