Coloring and Fractured Ribs

I fractured a couple of ribs when I fell Friday.  I am still in a great deal of pain from my injury.  It even hurts to breath.

The doctor prescribed medication to help with the pain.  She was concerned about my shallow breathing, because it could lead to pneumonia.  I am supposed to cough two or three times an hour to help clear out my lungs; however, the pain is excruciating.

I found coloring to be helpful, because it keeps my mind occupied on something other than the pain.  Each day, I spend hours working on pictures

These are my favorites.

    I’m really sorry about your injury. Broken ribs…OMGoodness, I can’t imagine how painful that must be. Glad you found something to take your mind off of it all. If you haven’t yet found this site http://explore.org/live-cams/player/service-dog-project-nursery-cam it may help to take your mind further off the pain. You can watch live stream at the Service Dog Project as they raise and train Great Dane puppies into adult balance and mobility service dogs. Watching the pups truly does lower one’s blood pressure, and is very relaxing. Take care….I pray for a speedy recovery!!
