I'm glad you are staying positive, even the more advanced stages like mine was are quite treatable. My ex-MIL had the same thing when she was diagnosed some 16 years ago.

Why would age matter much more? I understand about the bone density, but I still think the direction and the angle of the airbag would matter more, and those depend on the person's size.

I'm certain the plane will be shattered by overspeed or hit by another plane while we're cruising at 30 thousand feet.
