2009 Preflight Intermezzo

Well, things change. It seems that old, slippery and clumsy combined to help me fall from the boat's deck to the dock. The dock, being concrete, was quite undamaged by my fall and Carol and I have no liabilities there. I fared less well than the dock, breaking three ribs, 12.5% of my total, well below the 20% threshold considered serious. The good news is that they only hurt when I move or breathe and the drugs are fairly good at knocking the edge off.

So it will be a couple of weeks or so before we get underway. Until then I guess that I'll try not to breathe too much.

AARGH!!! So sorry about the moving dock, uh...I managed to help a friend break her ankle...that involved coming in to the dock on the windward side of the dock...It was either her ankle or the boat...she made the right decision.
Hope you get over the "rib thing" quickly...Definitely the time to practice your yoga...Breath in and out slowly and deeply! Good luck to you both. Anne
