Just pouting

Had a snowboard wreck on Tuesday that was painful but didn't seem too bad in the grand scheme of things (not high speed, no jumps, no trees, whatever) but after a visit to urgent care to rule out a torn rotator cuff, I apparently have a fractured transverse process of L3 and a hairline fracture in my humerus. Ugh. I need to find new sports or get better much faster. And probably get a bone density test.

I have a follow-up with an orthopedist and my back guy but blehh, I'm already bored of this! Time for some chocolate (btw, white chocolate M&Ms? Heaven!)

At least, on the bright side, I'd much rather rehab atrophied muscles from broken bones than deal with ligament tears. And the doctor seemed surprised to see both fractures and commented on how well I seemed to be doing (he almost didn't even x-ray the shoulder).

Owwwwwww. Heal up quick! Hope you find just the right amount of chocolate to do the trick.

Heal quickly! I broke my humerus when I was 14 riding a horse bareback. Let's just say the body cast WAS NOT HUMERUS!!!!

I think I need some M&Ms too!
