I've made the decision (again) that too many doctor appointments can be far too overwhelming, so the month of October is doctor-free except for the pain management doc that I see every 4 weeks or don't get meds. This is a very liberating feeling! For one whole month I don't have to think about anything except having fun with friends and family,
My rib is healing from the 2nd fracture, although it still hurts at times to move and when I cough or laugh. The only medical thing I will do this month is find a second opinion, but even that can wait until November!
