I Won’t Be Bending Elbows For A While

By Wyatt Earp | April 1, 2009

Um, remember yesterday’s post about my hockey game? No? I knew no one ever read the stories about my life! Anyway, if you did read that post, you would have seen this:

The second time, I was dumped to the ice and landed on my elbow. It felt like it was fractured, but since I can move it, it is probably only bruised. Three hours after the game it is swollen and still hurts like Hell.

Good thing I’m not a licensed physician – although I play one with the lovely ladies! After a day chock full o’ pain, I decided to go to the E.R. See for yourself . . .


It’s frakkin’ fractured! The doc said he’ll have to cast it, and that’s supposed to happen sometime later today. In the meantime, I am on all sorts of happy pills to ease the pain. Typing is a pain – literally – but work (and the blog) shouldn’t suffer.

Here is another, cooler x-ray of the injury . . .


Hey, it’s better than my annual “I’m quitting the blog” prank, right? The elbow still hurts, but as far as I can tell, it’s only a bruise.

    I leaned up from my sick-bed for this? You’re an ass! :) (Glad you don’t really need a cast. Your butt will need a sling, though.)

    You wiseass. I was about to say if it was not for bad luck, you’d have no luck.

    I SO fell for that. Good one Wyatt.

    I have learned to read everything you scribe on this day very carefully.

    Yes, you are an ass, but you’re a conservative ass, so I’ll overlook this….for another year.

    I learned my lesson from last year. Nice try.

    Dang, you got me good! More cool X-rays; just the right bait to lure me in. Have a great day, Wyatt.

    You got me on that one. Here I was thinking, “Poor, Wyatt. He’s going to need some TLC to get better.”

    But since that’s the case, the lovely ladies of your blog won’t be flocking over to bestow that care that you would have desperately needed.

    Jerk! :p

    And here I was all concerned. (And wondering how you can do your job while in a cast.)

    Fell hook, line and sinker! Wasn’t around last year to learn. Next year I’m not sure what it will take to show you sympathy again!

    I’ll admit, you had me convinced.

    …until the remark about how your work wouldn’t suffer.

    Still, you get points for creativity. And for pulling a better prank than I did (which was nothing. Been so busy that I forgot to plan something.)

    Now if you fall and fracture your elbow today, we’re not gonna believe you.

    As much bad luck as you have been having lately, it really would not have surprised me any. Love the xray pics

    Nothing good ever comes from playing a sport on a rock hard surface!

    Take it easy trying to corral your boys and hug your girls. Get well.

    I didn’t buy it for a second… that bicep is too big to be yours! Ha!

    Let’s see, I got a few “asses,” a “wiseass,” a “brat,” a “jerk,” and an “asswipe.” I’d say this was a pretty successful April Fool’s Day. :)
