hawaiijenno: Does anyone have any advice related to an intercostal muscle strain?  I fell flat on my back on ice a few weeks ago. I thought I was better, but I reached up to a shelf this evening & felt a pop in one of my ribs & had about 60 seconds of really intense pain.  Now it's just really, really sore if I try to lift anything with that side or raise my arm above shoulder height.  I think I just pulled one of the muscles, since there's no swelling


Owie!  Have you been taking it easy since the original injury? Sometimes things just "pop" back into place when you begin moving normally again.  Rib injuries suck because you have to breathe.  Maybe take it easy a little bit longer.

bighairyguy: Minette has become a mouser!  With the cold snap, we had some mice move into the garage.  She finally caught some.  However, I was able to catch one too, and she was quite confused with what I did with it.


HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

That happened to me (falling on my back on ice), but I got checked out by a doctor.  Nothing was broken so he gave me a regimen of stretches to work it out.  If you can manage it at night, move your arm on the affected side above your head, elbow bent to start.  The next night try to sleep with your arm straight above or even elbow level, then the next night sleep with your arm straight clear above your head (as difficult as it sounds).  That keeps the muscles in your back stretched out so they don't get used to being tight.

He also gave me a printout of leaning stretches that looked like a Jane Fonda 1985 workout tape.  Just imagine throwing your arm over your head and trying to touch the opposite leg.  It's exactly as painful as it sounds.

I'm not sure any of that helped - it still took two weeks before I felt "right" on that side of my back.

Ugh, I hate, hate, HATE mice.  I didn't even realize it until we bought a farmhouse.

But vertical video makes the baby Catsus cry, no matter how hilarious it was.  I won't even ask how you got the mouse into the bottle.

Nah, neither do I.  :)

Posting a pic of yourself  with troll haireating beans and hotdogs opens you up to all sorts of sorry characters.

iBette: exvaxman: Predle

The mister and I got smacked driving back from NH last fall.  Dumbass in a big suv on her cellphone ran a stop sign; nearly t-boned my little Subaru.  Ambulance ride to ER (nothing broken - amazingly), then stranded 100 miles from home when finally released.  The first day we were just shocked and numb, but, holy fark, were we sore for the next week!  Adding more insult to injury, the other driver had no auto insurance.

Toonces says: "Eyes on the road and both paws on the wheel, numb-nuts!"


Anyone caught in those circumstances should have an automatic, minimum sentence of 1 month in jail (if no injuries) and a second instance should automatically be tried for attemped voluntary manslaughter or manslaughter.

Tommy has become a hunter as well. Not sure how he can do this but he must have developed a technique that works for him.
He brings them, live, into the house to play.
This is the outcome:

The hate for 8 burns strongly here... like the fire of a thousand sons.  I share your pain.

I am also in that club.  But I do love Caturday!

agreed!!!  There are awesome people here.  This thread open in a tab lowers my blood pressure an easy 10 points...

Lsherm: s - Funny story about Bob's ashes:  The company that handled cremation called me at work to find out what we wanted on the plaque for her wood box and I said "Miss Bob."  The woman asked "Oh, like you miss him?"  I explained that she was an outside cat when we adopted her and didn't find out her sex for two years, so we named her Bob, but when we found out she was female we always called her "Miss Bob."  There was a slight pause, and then the woman asked "You named a cat Bob?"


I had a cat named Bob too...when I went back to my vet's office to pick up his ashes they said they had to send them back because they spelled his name wrong.  I stood there and said 'They spelled BOB wrong?  It is 3 letters, 2 of them the same....they spelled BOB wrong???'  Actually they spelled the last name wrong.  It still makes me laugh.

Remember the good times.  And the things that make you smile.  Your story will make you smile in a year or so.  Mine always makes me smile.

Hai everyone! Writing from school. It was nice to be home for a little while, but it was hard leaving the hubby and kittehs behind again. He says they're back to the incessant whining for Mommy. I got lots of kitty pictures to add to my screen saver though!

I am going to say, take either ibuprophin or naproxin, and call your Doc asap. Muscle strain can be very difficult to deal with, let a pro evaluate you. I suffored for 8 months with a foot injury. Within a month, p.t. Made it feel sooo much better. And now I know how to strengthen my feet, so I don't have this issue again...


What Tigerose said, been there, done that.

You know what makes great shots?  Coconut rum and pineapple jell-o.  Mmmmm-MMM!  I usually make a few dozen when we do smudge parties in the summer.  They're especially good with some of these:

Ummmm... well... that's what they look like after a few shots. :)


I've always wanted to try that (coconut rum w pineapple jello) but i'm not even sure if pineapple jello is available up here in atlantic canuckia.
