Is this a poor excuse for all the fluff you will be posting for the next weeks/months ?
At least he has a decent excuse.

Not sure that logically follows, but wish you a good recovery!
The scans show you do have a heart, so suspicions confirmed.

Be patient, it'll take time. Glad you're still with us.

A question: did you wear one of those back/spine protector thingys? If not, do you think it would have helped and will you wear one in the future?
No but I will in future

Before we all start cracking jokes (I'm pondering some wordplay ones on Brokeback Mountain) @FMF, Are your ribs healed well enough that laughing isn't life threatening?
I was sick 6 times when they were giving me too much medication by mouth before I was eating, laughing is nothing

I have insurance but they never bothered to take the details, although I did wave my card at them at the time

The amusing thing is the French could not understand that I did not have an EHIC card being British & living in the EU.

Re: FMF broken back in minor ski fall

<< I knew I had no brains damage as all I wanted to know the current price of BITCOIN, as it was just below 6k when I set off for skiing.>>
Now that is debatable, LOL, as Phil MCR also noticed

Sorry to read all this, sounds like it all started as a wonderful day (hiking up where no one's been and go down from there is still the best bit).
Glad to hear it hasn't put you off skiing (it's like horse-back riding, innit ), still take things slowly.

Always the practical one: Maybe now is the time to solve that wrist-problem too?

Get back on your feet soon!

PS: That middle scan is of you? You're in good shape

Take off the damn pack
DIN setting is 7.75 which for someone of 55 is relatively high, I will crank them up to 8 or 8.5 next season. TBH I don't want them to come off, at least if they are on you have a chance of stopping if you fall in a couloir, I can't think of any of the times I lost a ski in the last 5 years it was beneficial, they generally come off once in 40 - 50 days skiing.

It all fit's in quite well, I need a final CT scan about the end of March, then I can have the operation on my Left hand for Carpet Tunnel release which is booked for 10 April

Re: FMF broken back in minor ski fall

Bugger, bugger, bugger. Commiserations, old man. I can empathise hugely with you here, having broken multiple vertebrae and ribs in a motorcycle accident some years ago. Looks like yours are all in quite good shape (I had to have three fused together) so I hope your long-term prognosis is pain free, but don't expect miracles, and take all the time the recovery needs.

If you feel up to visitors let me know - I don't have your address but you can't be far from me. Not sure I could find fresh grapes at this time of the year but maybe some preserved ones in a bottle mit help

Migros had them this week! I know because I was surprised to see them - did not try them though.

Don't call him an old man again, when you visit him.

Good grief man, you don't know how to do things halfway do you??

Feel better soon and as Ace1 says, don't rush the recovery.

Re: FMF broken back in minor ski fall

Sh#t, what a horror.

Good you are on the mend and wish you a rapid and full recovery.

They are really clever here at fixing you up after such accidents.

Had an English friend who had a similar accident here and got fixed up OK. When he eventually got back to England he checked into a top English hospital for a second opinion.

They told him they would never have attempted such a repair, after such an accident in UK he would be spending his life in a wheelchair.

That's governmental health-care for you

As much as the Swiss would probably like the flowers ..... FMF was fixed up in France, it seems.
