Ouch

This HURTS. GP scared living daylights out of me today by paying an unsolicited home visit.  Eek. He had to reassure me this did not mean I was terminally ill. LOL.  Leg a horrible mess, but he decided as the fevers and chills had stopped that I was probably showing some improvement, though he stressed that at any deterioration I was to go straight to A+E over the weekend, and he’d be back on Monday. Why does that worry me so much? If I was Sarah, I would post a picture at this point. I was always impressed that she blogged her hand injury before going to hospital!.Anyway, he stresses strict bedrest – up to toilet and shower only, ABs and some rather pleasant painkillers, and at least two litres of water a day.

Hannah has been a star, preparing tasty morsels, running with cold and hot compresses, drinks and pills. The good side is it has aided the post-Christmas de tox, as I can’t face anything except soup.

Meanwhile, she has done some silk painting, played Donkey Konga on the Wii – now there’s a blast from the past – done some of the Bond reasoning tests, read, and used her graphics tablet.  I think I may sleep again.

    oops, think I got moderated! (was logged in to wordpress dot com so it’s probably counting me as a different user).

    in my defence, I don’t think I posted a photo of my lacerated tendon … but if I’d had a digital camera I would have! At least you are blogging (although typing with a sore toe is obviously not as impressive as typing with a dismembered finger 😉 )

    Lots of love xx.
