PLASTERED!!!!!

Well, for the second time in a week, we have just spent a couple of hours in a hospital. Not me this time, my hubby.
He went outside around 9.20pm to put the windscreen covers on and missed the top step, hence he slid down all of them on his back and has ended up with a broken wrist. If that wasn't bad enough, he has broken a bone (skapoid I think) that has it's own blood supply and if it's not detected, which will take another 2 weeks, the bone will start to die and crumble.
He has a temporary cast on which comes off in 2wks when he has to have an other x-ray. A permanent cast will then be put on for a further 4-6 weeks.
We had no sleep last night so are staying another day before I drive us home.
Here is the invalid.

I feel for you both, in differing ways. However, the main thing is good medical attention to ensure recovery and full usage of his arm - see the GP when home? Take care x

I broke my scaphoid - falling off a horse! Its surprisingly painful for such a little bone!

I feel for him - but tell him at least he doesnt have to do up a bra!!! I had to get my mum to do mine!

Poor Terry - he looks really fed up and no wonder. And poor you too - what a rotten way to end your lovely trip. Give him a gentle hug from me and wish him a speedy recovery. David says he must take more water with it! Love from us both, Lindsay x x
