Single Status Update
I haven't been around lately. First there was two weeks driving across the country. Then after that I drove into a low concrete wall.
Nothing that bedrest and drugs can't fix. Anyway, I'll be gone for another week or two.

My lung didn't collapse, but they were concerned about a pocket of air above the 'good lung' that would potentially crush it. Hence the tube. I've since had it taken out; if anyone here has had something pulled out of your chest, you'll know it's not pleasant.
No other problems except bruises everywhere. It sucks trying to get around. I've gotten some range of motion back in my left arm, so that's good. Really, the only thing left is to get my lung capacity back and let the ribs heal some more. I sneezed yesterday and that was the most horrible pain I've felt in a long time.
