Blogging Up The Works

Wednesday, August 23, 2017


Well, I thought since my chest was still hurting a bit, although a great deal better, I ought to go get an x-ray 5 weeks after the event. I was being nagged by too many people to get it done. As always it was very efficient and within minutes of the x-ray I had the results in my hand. I've broken my sternum. Yep, I appear to have broken myself in half. Perhaps if I fit a hinge system to the back and zip at the front I could open like a Russian doll. That would be fun.

Anyway, having left it 5 weeks I'm not really able to take advantage by lying on the couch like a Victorian maiden with an attack of the vapours. But that's what we are like us Northerners. Our bodies break but we still carry on. Slowly. Although I think that might be my advancing age.


  • How will that get fixed then?

  • It just knits back together. Supposedly. It is a lot better. It's just if I cough it hurts or if I sneeze it feels like my chest has exploded!

  • Crikey mate! Did you do that in the accident then?
    Hope it heals up soon.

  • I did indeed. Think it was the seat belt that did the damage.

  • Blimey. How on earth did you do that? It's not the kind of thing that just happens, surely?

  • In the van crash. Just thought it was bruising but people kept telling me I should get it x-rayed. Pretty much fine now except for sneezing and even that's not too bad now.
