Notorious RBG hospitalized again

Post by g-man » Thu Nov 08, 2018 11:53 pm

Apparently she fell in the Supreme Court offices and broke 3 ribs. She broke 2 back in 12, but was quickly back on the bench. Interestingly, the article noted that the court spokeswoman "did not provide additional details about how Justice Ginsburg fell or whether she fell because of another medical condition." So some reporters have obviously asked.

EDIT: Just noticed that this was also mentioned over in the 'does not follow' thread.

IMHO, at this point she's just grimly holding on, hoping she doesn't die before Jan 20. 2021. She really wanted Hitlery to appoint her replacement, but then Trump won the election and messed up her plan. So now she's stuck.

I almost guarantee the only way she leaves the bench with Trump in the White House if if she keels over.

Well, in stating the obvious, another reason that hopefully Trump doesn’t cave to Dem House demands and he is able to win re-election in 2020...

Politics aside, falling down and breaking ribs is not a joke. I did that 2 months ago. Just fell down outside when I didn't expect it and broke one or maybe 2.

Never went to the doctor over it, just ate a lot of advil and some aspirin and got through it. People told me to get it wrapped and such, but the internet says they don't do that any more. Seems you can't breath deep that way and this increases the chance of pneumonia. Takes 4-6 weeks to heal. I was still working and all and had to chainsaw something 3 weeks later. Took 5 weeks to stop feeling it move and 7 before I could turn onto that side in my sleep and not wake up from the discomfort.

They don't wrap any more, I know because I broke a coupla ribs in a car accident a couple of years ago. They kept me in the hospital 4 days for observation, as there's a real risk of a embolism developing if you nick a lung.

It was painful as hell, and I too was told - 6-8 weeks, hat horrible lie that is, it was something like 12 weeks when I could sit up out of bed and not acream in pain, and wasn't back to normal for like 4 months+.
HTRN, I would tell you that you are an evil fucker, but you probably get that a lot ~ Netpackrat
