Well, ouch. :(

Well, that was a sucky Sunday, January 6th. I fell down on a patch of ice while walking to the grocery store, fractured and dislocated my left elbow, and spent the next 3-4 days in the hospital in surgery and recovering.That was the most EXCRUCIATING pain of my life, especially when they were putting on the splint. They kept asking me to rate the pain on a scale of 1-10. I figured the pain couldn't get much worse and then it'd increase alittle more. "7...8....YEEARGH! 9!9!9!" Ah, well. It could've been worse. A hip, leg, or vertebrae would've been far more irritating and dangerous.

Sorry to hear of your accident. I broke my collar bone a few years ago and that sucked! I hope you are not too impaired and the healing goes quickly.

Oooh, there's another area I wouldn't want to break, the collarbone!
