Fracture Clinic

I had Chris back at hospital this morning, he did manage to get a couple of hours sleep thankfully. The shock of yesterday is taking its toll, I think in my younger days I would have brushed things like this off but these days it has me rattled for a few days.

Apparently Chris has given himself a good battering and managed to severely damage muscle and ligaments in his shoulder so that along with his ribs should keep him out of mischief, the doctor advised it would take a few months for his shoulder to mend.

So for now we will keep his pain meds topped up to try to keep him confortable.

Oh My–Hospital

What a morning, I was awoke with a whisper of a voice trying to get me to wake up, Chris had been out on his bike early doors and had an accident, he was struggling to breath and shaking uncontrollably, Chris doesn't do medicine in any form and wont go to the doctors if he is ill so I instantly knew he was in trouble as he asked to go to hospital.

I’ve just got home and the poor love has been through the mill, he has a problem with his shoulder as there is a large gap between the shoulder ball and the socket so he is sporting a sling and we need to go back to the fracture clinic tomorrow morning. It is likely he has cracked ribs because of the breathing issues and the tenderness but the lung capacity seams fine, he is very grazed and drugged with painkillers. I so relieved he got away with no major injuries.

So I wont be on Create and Craft today or tomorrow as they have kindly got the shows covered for me. However I will be back Thursday with a One Day Wonder.

So Pretty at Night

Chris and I headed out for a little stroll along the sea front tonight, it was a lovely night and we needed some fresh air.  I love the night walks, it hides all the imperfections of the daytime view.
