season ender.

Crap.

My season's over!

I was hiking the north pole chutes at the basin on Sunday. I'm not sure what happened, but the snow was sketchy and I was cruising and I caught an edge and tomahawked about 12 or 13 times. Somehow during all that I managed to break 3 ribs and herniate a disk in my back. Oddly enough, this was caused only by the torque on my body as I was flipping... there was no impact to my ribcage at all. Must have really been moving.

Well, though it sounds realtively minor, it is actually quite painful now and I have a sick feeling in the back of my head that I'm done for the year. And I was just thinking about how healthy I was this year. Still haven't made it through a full season here since '89.

What a load of ....


BTW It's not a total loss. The PT chick I'm working with this time is a total babe...

Perhaps there are subliminal motives at work

btw, according to a post on TGR, the east wall was closed today. Maybe in your honor.

I believe it. The upper part was only open for a couple of weeks it seems like.

: Have you been getting injured on the slopes each season for the last 17 years? You should give Guinness a call that might be a record. Seriously though glad to see your doing okay. Be careful out there.

You know... there might be some varying degrees of injury in there. A sore *insert joint of choice here* coupled with a bad snow year makes for an early season sometimes.

But yeah, over the years I've done just about everything in the book.

Actually it's no laughing matter when you need a hand sitting up to get out of bed. The ribs should heel well on their own (been there done that), but tell me, what do you do for the herniated disk?

Is this not the same as a compressed vertebrae? My Doc said there wasn't much he could do short of a few good 'scrips & a recommendation for PT.

It's also no laughing matter when you laugh. Ouch!
