mike_s Posted October 7, 2005 Share Posted October 7, 2005 I forgot to mention this... When my oncologist came into the exam room after my last CT scan, her first words were "What exactly have you been doing that got you a broken rib?" Evidently she could tell from that way it was broken that it was not cancer-related. I am very worried about my girls in the event I get sick again, so I have been coaching and practicing with them both to make sure they can take care of themselves if I am not around(I used to teach martial arts). Even before I got sick, I insisted that they train in martial arts for a year before I would let them get drivers licenses, and go out in a car by themselves. I am also teaching them about car maintenance, and purchase, mortgages, and all kinds of things... busy! I was very pleased to tell my doctor that my 5'4" 120lb daughter had broken one of my ribs with a left hook, delivered (pefectly!) when I was laughing at her for making a silly mistake. You GO! Jo. I do have to say that it was kind of tough to congratulate her while I felt my body going into mild shock from a broken bone... My doctor never seemed to understand why the broken bone didnt bother me, and I just laughed about it....heh... she is not a daddy. I truly pity the boy that puts an uninvited hand on one of MY girls. She was being NICE. Regards, mike_s Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
