    About 10 years ago, I rolled off my bed--yet somehow (inexplicably!) did not even realize it (let alone feel any pain).

    When I woke up, I found myself on the floor--and had absolutely no idea as to why that was.

    I was amazingly fortunate: I did not break (or even sprain) anything.

    I have a couple of bruises (from what, exactly, I have no idea).

    I told my wife that when I next see the doctor, I need to tell him that she has been beating up on me.

    Interestingly, she did get a kick out of that...

    My wife was prescribed some Percoset when she had a knee replacement about the middle of June; but she has declined (usually) to take it (although for a different reason).

    She is afraid that she might become addicted to it.

    Occasionally, she does take half of one.

    (She has tried extra-strength acetaminophen--generic Tylenol--but it has not been effective.)

    Usually, she just accepts the pain.

    I was given one of these and when I finally learned how to use it, it works great!



    It's got two inflatable pockets, one on each side of the ankle with the "1" setting on the dial being for the right side and "2" being for the left. You turn the dial and press the bulb repeatedly to apply pressure and inflate that side until pressure on your ankle is where you want it then change the dial and pump up do the other side and then move the dial to lock. It works great!

    When I was a student I went out one night with some of the lads on the course. We got well bladdered. next day at Uni one of the lads., Simon was complinging his arm rally hurt. after a coupel of hours we persuaded him to go to the local A&E. it turned out he had a broken arm. To this day we have no idea how he managed to break it and not remember.

    In the US, A&E is a television network. (It is short for Arts and Entertainment; but it usually goes just by its initials.)

    But I have no idea what those same initials stand for in the UK.

    Is it like a hospital?

    Accident and Emergency. Where the Ambulances drop you off.
