Caruba's Busted Clavicle


Last night I did what a lot of old men do. I fell down. I busted the clavicle in the area of my left shoulder. Ice packs. Pain pills. Etc. So things may slow down a bit after I run out of the posts that are already written.

Good thing this happened before Obamacare kicked in.

Updates will follow as I recover; a process that is likely to take two or three weeks.

Dang it! So sorry to hear your news, Alan. My wife and I will say a prayer for your fast recovery. Take some time and coast for a little bit. You're my best source of being grounded in truth.

Take care to heal correctly, Alan. We need you.
Please do not accept any invitations to interview with any government panels or investigatory boards.

Guy said...

Ouch! Good luck with your recovery. A little Aleve and Whiskey does wonders ... I know! I blew my back out splitting firewood this year, and it did wonders for me.....

ytba said...

Please G-d you will speedily get well, and not have any more mishaps, great OR small.

Ol James said...

Sure do hate to hear that Mr. Alan. Cracked mine a few times, can sort of feel your pain.
Get Well Soon Sir !!
Yep, under O-Care they would assign you a worker, who would then recommend to a "panel" on whether to fix you up....or...put you out of their misery.

Alan Caruba said...

I appreciate your prayer and added one or two of my own.

Herman said...

Hope you get to feeling better soon!
Guy's right about the Aleve and Whiskey - too bad the combo will wreck your stomach after awhile.

Better cancel your winter sports programme, Alan, and parkup the snow ski.
Sorry to hear of your pain - a hot toddy made with a good cognac is sure to assuage the pain.
Get well soon - and don't count the bottles!

Alan Caruba said...

Thank you, one and all. It is around 8 PM as I write this. I am am feeling much better already. The pain pills are remarkable, allowing for a bit of normalacy. A good night's sleep should put me on the path to full recovery.

Get well soon.

Steve said...

Get Well Soon! My prayers added to all the others. Was this so you could empathize with Rush? :)

God Bless You!

"Last night I did what a lot of old men do" ... and this morning you did what a lot of old men do - got up and went back to work, albeit briefly. Thanks for letting us know and take a break (old men do that too!). Get better at JUST the right pace, ....

Frank Tamel said...

Get well soon, Alan. We need your insights like an apple a day to keep the liberals away.

TexasFred said...

Hire you a secretary, dictate and let her post the stuff that needs to get out there...

Get well soon!

Sir Shrek said...

Alan Caruba said...

Thank you everyone...am resting and healing...it will take about two weeks or so to be fully recovered.

Karl said...

Ouch. Sorry to hear. Take care of yourself.

ytba said...

Perhaps this will give you a little solace, and perhaps even a good (but hopefully not to painful) laugh.

It seems that after he left you old Joe Btfsplk paid a visit to the Greenies at "Sea Predator," uh, I mean "Sea Shepherd."

Invincible speed boat ramming Japanese ship FAIL!

And, in other Greenie comeuppance news. (not as ammusing, but still somewhat satisfying)

Alan Caruba said...

ytba: It's about time someone fought back against the Greenies!

Wonderful links! Thanks.

Red said...

Oh no! Get well fast Alan!
