The Relief of a Ex-Smoker

Related image

Update – After numerous tests and an assortment of x-rays, we have a verdict, so it seems. My husband has a broken rib. While it can occur with heavy coughing, it more likely happened at his workplace, when he stopped a free rolling, heavy cart with his chest, that somebody had left unattended.  

The doctor also suggested he should lose the extra 30 pounds of “quitting weight,” that I made him gain with my cooking -his words, not mine. I roared with laughter when I picture myself force-feeding him with chocolates. How wicked of me to MAKE him eat seconds.

A stress test is scheduled for tomorrow, just to be on the save side, but everything besides the rib and the extra weight seems to be normal.

I sat on pins and needles for a few days, envisioned the worst and feel overwhelming joy and relief.

I know, aging sooner or later will throw us more curveballs, but for the moment, life as we know it will continue and we will live happily ever after and beyond.

  1. I’m relieved right along with you! I think most of us at one time or another have had that long wait for a doctor’s appointment or the results from some medical testing and then the powerful relief from days of holding your breath! A broken rib is no small thing, either. Hope healing is quick and the new diet not too painful. 🙂

  3. I’m SO glad for your good news. Sorry to hear you’re the embodiment of evil in force-feeding that poor poor man with chocolates, but I guess everyone’s relationships are different! In my relationship, I feed them to myself for hours at night while I read old paperbacks..

  5. Somewhere along the line I’ve obviously missed a few posts. I’m relieved for you that the crisis you’ve been dealing with was relatively a minor one.

    Somehow I’m sure you’re likely to blame for the 30 lbs I too gained …. 😉
