I've been a bit slack lately I'm afraid. I've downloaded all of them but still haven't done the last 3 or 4. Still, it gives Peter time to catch up :shock:

It's a good idea just collect them while they are there whether you do them now or not. They might just come in handy for a day when you have nothing else to do or can't do anything else. Makes a change from solitaire or whatever your poison is.

As I have the jigsaw program I do a lot of my own anyway, usually subjects which wouldn't interest others on here, probably. I've done hundreds since breaking my ribs a few months ago now as there wasn't much else I could do.

It is literally a sore point but yes, you may ask.

On the evening of May the 4th I went to my local and had 1 or 2 pints of glorious foaming ale. This was followed by one of England's finest offerings, a Chinese takeaway. I walked home, ate my supper and went to bed. I don't remember what follows but the wife told me this is what happened so I have to take her word for it.
About 3am I needed to use the little boys room so up I got and wandered around the bedroom looking for the big lump of white porcelain but to no avail. As I couldn't find said piece of porcelain I decided to go back to bed at which point the wife spoke. "Just go out the door, straight on and turn left" she says. So I did. Unfortunately I forgot to turn left and found that someone had put the stairs in front of me. She tells me it took around 5 seconds for me to descend the stairs in a very noisy fashion. She looked down the stairs and saw a crumpled heap with blood coming out of it's ear and not moving. She descended the stairs in the correct fashion to find I wasn't breathing either! Being a nurse she shouted at me, apparently that's what you should do before anything else like CPR etc. This didn't wake me up so she called me an ambulance. "You're an ambulance, you're an ambulance" she shouted. Well she didn't really but the previous sentence may have sounded like she did exactly that. Anyway, they told her to stay on the phone and a paramedic would be here very shortly. Now for the amazing part. The rapid response guy apparently took all of 30 seconds to get here and between them they got me breathing again albeit with an initial episode of vomiting. Nice. He checked me over and called another ambulance to take me to hospital as he thought I had broken my sternum as that's where I said the most pain was. I still don't remember any of this. The rapid response guy then explained that he had actually been next door (the other house adjoined to our semi) to another emergency and had just sent him off to the same hospital he was sending me to! What are the chances of that?
Anyway, I 'woke up' while on the way to hospital and was able to tell them they should throw away the satnav as we were going the long/wrong way to the hospital. We eventually got there about 5 minutes after the wife which worried her a little to say the least.
X-rays and CT scans showed nothing (well they wouldn't if they only did them from the front) and I was sent home on a diet of morphine, co-codamol and ibuprofen. Within 2 days this was upped to morphine, tramadol and naproxen. I'm still on the last 2 due to having another x-ray which showed 5 broken ribs and now I'm told a torn costal cartilage. I do hope that answers your question Peter, thinking about it you nearly had time to do a jigsaw instead of reading that!

The short answer to your question is of course that I fell down the stairs :shock:

OMG TF :shock::shock::shock::shock:

What a good job your wife is a nurse and also, just think what might have happened if you'd been alone ..............:shock:

Nearly 4 months on and you're still on "heavy" drugs.

What make was the beer ............I'll try to avoid it if it causes that much pain ...........:cheers

In all seriousness (something I rarely do away from work) yes, I was very lucky. The upshot if the wife wasn't around that night could have been that all my railway stuff would now be on ebay! I was very lucky indeed. Apparently the tramadol can be a naughtyword to give up, the morphine wasn't easy but I managed it.
For the record the beers were these:

About 5 pints of each did the trick :roll:

Edit: Is the word bugge® really that naughty a word?

I find that keeping up the intake of alchol has a far better effect than all these drugs.

Seriously TF I hope everything is improving, look after yourself it sounds like you had a very close shave!

As far as pain relief goes I couldn't agree more with Ian. However, when you wake up at 4 or 5 in the morning writhing in pain it's maybe not such a good idea to hit the bottle. I'm also unsure about the anti-inflammatory capabilities of a bottle of brandy or whatever else.
Yes, it was a VERY close shave and I'm very happy to still be here, it could have been oh so different.
Also, it seems the ribs have healed but the cartilage is the one still hanging around due to not being able to rest it. Even walking to the pub disturbs it as I have found tonight! And all day yesterday. And Tuesday evening. And last weekend. With Black Rat Monday only 48 hours away it will probably be quite disturbed for a few days yet.

Take it easy TF and try to give your body a chance to recover. Glad you are OK (sort of), though. :-)

At least it has slowed you down on the puzzles so Peter has a better chance of beating you!!  :twisted:  :cool wink

I'm not sure why but I did see the wife a little while back studying my life insurance policies, she doesn't usually get involved in any of the financial stuff, apart from spending it of course.

Anyway, it won't happen again as I have invested in one of these. Behind it is a scaled down version of me, about 1:3 I would guess:



I thought it would be easier and cheaper than moving to a bungalow.
