“Well, Mr. Greenwood, you seem to have an avulsion fracture of C6, probably caused by your head hitting the bottom of the river. Luckily, this type of ‘clay shoveler’s fracture‘ is pretty stable, so just carry on as normal*”


* as normal: adv: doing the things one usually does.

Hey Ade, glad you are OK. (Thanks Phil for XRays and explanation.)
