    Well, it seems I had a little accident Monday night. I had been to the doctor in the morning for something else. Woke up after midnight with rather sharp pain, got up to get a pain killer from the bathroom. Pain suddenly replaced by the room spinning. I called to Mrs yankee but she was asleep, so i tried to crawl to the bedroom, only got a few feet before I blacked out momentarily. Full nose plant came on the raised edge of the tile floor. We're guessing the fainting was caused by the meds the doctor had given me in the morning.
    Had a CT scan at the hospital (mainly thanks to Mrs yankee reading her colleagues the riot act over the phone), all clear. I go back Thursday to have the nose looked at and schedule the operation to get it fixed.
    The bummer post script: we were supposed to fly to New York Thursday to spend Easter with my parents, which we'll have to cancel. Gotta love non-refundable flights.

    And so you can all revel in my pain just a little more, a picture of me at the hospital

    Feel better, yankee!

    fwiw, you kind of remind me of a pepper-sprayed Walter White.

    Yeouch! Looks more like you had a run in with a Wampa. Bet you're still strong enough to pull the ears off a Gundark, though! Feel better!

    Actually, it wasn't his wife. It was Lennay Kekua.

    Woah dude, you look like you were beaten up for your lunch money.

    Know that feel about non-refundable lights, utter nightmare.
    Get better soon.

    OUCH. Glad to hear the CT was okay. Hope you get the meds adjusted so that this doesn't happen again and hopefully your nose feels better soon.

    Thanks for the kind wishes, everyone. At the hospital now for the follow-up, let's see if I need surgery.

    Surgery Monday. This should be fun.

    To add insult to injury, I caught a cold Monday night, nose is running non-stop.

    D: Hopefully they give you not-so-horrible drugs to deal with the pain.
