“He’s doing fine,” Rosenfield said. “He has a broken rib, it’s very painful and it’ll take a long time to heal.”

Although I despise the man’s politics I pray for a full and speedy recovery. I bruised my ribs and it is still slightly tender almost three months later!

I pray for his recovery in the same fashion that he prays for Charlton Heston’s.

Hurts even more when you break a bunch and poke one through a lung.
That’s when I quit smoking. It still hurts to lay on them almost 4 years later.

Although I despise the man’s politics I pray for a full and speedy recovery. I bruised my ribs and it is still slightly tender almost three months later! ------------------------------------------------- Jan. 29th, I was hit from behind by a Jap taxi driver at a red light (I was fully stopped.. for about 15 seconds) and I was driving a 50cc scooter (the only affordable drivers license here (to get anything bigger takes $3000 course!!). Broke 1 rib.... very painful, almost impossible to get up from a laying position. I am lucky that his passenger yelled at him the second before hitting me, "ktosukete!!" (many meanings, but the closest to this situation is, "take care!".) He swerved right and clipped me and my bike, knocking it (the bike only, not me) about 50 feet forward (he was at a high rate of speed..). When I and the taxi stopped, my head was against the front left wheel of the taxi... When I was in the states, I had a 600cc Honda, and would NEVER drive anywhere without a full faced helmet. Here, it is like a fashion statement to drive with a half (only covering the cranium (top part of the head)). I try to convince these idiots that their face can disappear in nano seconds (of course along with many other body parts... I wear a full protection suit now... but it doesn't make me invincible..) Darn.. what is my point?! WEll.. You can never be fully protected, especially when driving a bike, but you should at least protect as much as possible, no matter what the inconvenience. There are drivers out there that never see you. About this imbecile, I normally would not feel bad for him.. but he is still human and I know first hand how a broken rib feels... just wish it would grow him a brain. MJ
