  1. I’ve done nothing to compare but do strongly feel exercise is an as antidepressant so hope you can get your ‘fix’ without overdoing so you don’t CRASH. Re-entry must really be a transition after months of the WILD life -😻
    take care of yourself and all the loved ones. Glad yr home safe

    1. Thank you, Mrs. B. I appreciate your encouragement along the way. I, too, believe that exercise is an antidepressant, and I am determined to keep walking. I specifically asked the Doc if it was okay to walk, and he said yes…just let pain be my dictator on how much is too much.


  2. I just knew that you had fractured rib just from your description alone because I broke one years ago and the symptoms were almost the same. Glad you went to get it checked though. 🙂


    1. Yes…you were also correct that he warned me about pneumonia due to not breathing deeply enough. Part of the reason he did the X-ray was to check for pneumonia (I think) and any other damage in there. I’m glad I got it checked out, too. At least I know nothing else is wrong. It always helps me to have a diagnosis…even if nothing can be done. I understand why I am having the pain.

  3. I love that one of your chickens is named Helen. Great name! I’m so glad you found an answer for what the pain is. Now for healing. Wishing you the best. I hope I can meet you someday, because you have been such an inspiration to me! Praying for a quick-knitting fracture.


      1. Another reason it’s a good name! Thank you, Kara. I’ll continue working on my blog. I was sidelined by one of those situations you mentioned earlier needing prayer (for a dear family member). Rest well.

    1. Thank you, Amy. I appreciate your prayers! I’m think of you as you are out there hiking in the rain, and praying for the safety of all of you! It’s kind of nice to be on the ‘reading end’ of things, rather than being out in the thick of it!


  5. You are sensible to have sought care very soon; getting checked out at the ER was a fabulous idea!

    Hugs, my dear. I am so glad you got through that horrid bus ride and that you are HOME! Rest up, sleep easily knowing you are safe and bear free. Isn’t it nice to know you don’t have to have all your food in a bag and on a bear line in a tree?!

    I am sure Bud and all your critters are thrilled to have you back home. I hope that your rib knits up quickly and there is no pneumonia. I am thankful you are safe. I will keep you in my prayers.


    1. Yeah…it was very ‘un-Kara-like’ for me to go to the E.R. so quickly. I’m glad I did! I appreciate your prayers and well-wishes very much, Sheila!

      Even more than not having to hang my food bag, I appreciate that I’m not having to hike in the rain that they are STILL having in the North East!
