450 lbs landed on my back Wed night due to a broken smith machine. I went to the ER, got shot up with Demorol (sp?) and am now on a cocktail of pain killers and muscle relaxers.

I have a fractured L5 and I'm out of work and play for at least a month.

On the bright side, I'm out of work for a month and I should fully recover. No tingling or other indicators of nerve damage... no obvious disc slippage in the spine. CAT scan and a custom brace are on order.

The hardest part? Tying my shoes and speed bumps. Ow, ow, ow. And, for once, I wish I drove an SUV instead of my Acura.

Enough keyboarding for now... you wouldn't believe the horrible ergonomics I'm pulling right now just to type a couple of paragraphs.
