I would never wish an injured rib on anybody. Every breath, cough, movement and turn is excruciating. Although exhausted, I dread going to sleep every night. It is good to sleep on the injured side so that the healthy lung can fully inflate on the other side. But you can imagine how painful it is to lie on top of the injured rib. So I can either have trouble breathing or I can grit my teeth and deal with the pain. My pain medication was increased this morning since the other stuff wasn't good enough.

What is more painful? The idea that I might not be able to go snowboarding on the trips I have planned over the next few weeks.

Keep praying. It needs to heal soon!
