I gave the doctor the full story, from the original mountain bike incident in Luang Nam Tha (over two months ago) to the ten days of violent nerve spasms that followed in Udomxai, and of course finally getting run over in Vientiane just as I was starting to heal. I didn't tell him I got shit on by a bird the very next day.
He placed the palm of his hand on my chest, just inside my shirt, and pushed down. I almost leaped out of the chair. He sent me straight to X-ray.
No breaks, no cracks, just swollen ribs and muscles. He scripted me a load of anti-inflammatories and muscle relaxants and told me to 'rest rest rest!' So I'm back to resting again. Like that's new..
(*Hugest thanks to John and Air for having me stay over this weekend - for feeding me, watering me, driving me to and from the hospital and the great day we had on the water over at the Tha Dan reservoir with eight month old Annie. You guys rock..)
