Just a bit of an update on the past few days…

I’ve been off work since Tuesday due to the rib injury and have been trying to take things extra easy so that the muscles can have a chance to settle down. To be honest, I don’t think it is helping too much.

The pain in my lower chest/side is still about the same first thing in a morning and then slowly starts to ease during the day. By the end of the day, it doesn’t feel too bad, if I don’t move around a lot or twist my body too much. Come the next morning, I feel rough again. The doctor did say that it will take some time to heal fully but I want it sorted now!

Tomorrow, Lynda and I are off to Spurn Point, bird watching. This is a Derby RSPB Local Group coach trip so I don’t have to worry about driving, but it does look like I will have to leave my birding ‘scope behind - there is no way I can carry that weight all day. I guess I’ll just have to make sure that I tag along with someone that does have a ‘scope with them!

Depending on what the weather is like and the amount of birds that are moving through, I may just spend time enjoying being in the fresh air and messing around with the camera. Having said that, there will probably be rarities all along the 3-mile point and I’ll finish up walking myself into the ground!

Yes doctor, I am taking things easy!

  1. I pulled my shoulder out of wack when I worked at the stables and it took the better part of a year to heal. It does take a long time.Sorry wish you were feeling better.
