If your going to do something you might as well give it a good shot.
Mr CH: Call the ambulance!
Me: Are you alright?
Mr CH: Nooooo, I've broken something!
Me: Are you sure?
Mr CH: Course I'm sure, arrhhh!! it's facing the wrong way!
Two bones broken in three places.
Three plates and a couple dozen screws.
Try calling in sick for that one!
Yep surgery, but only after the swelling goes down.
Ice packs for a week to help with swelling and pain and plenty of panadol.
Bruises from trying to get a cannula in, by ambulance and triage, thirteen injections!
Looking a bit pale.
A week spent trying to sleep in a reclined position and feeling bones grinding when he had to hobble to the bathroom.
Didn't complain about sponge-baths though!
Glad to be home
Looking much better a week after surgery. Bruise on heel from doctor's thumb while pulling his leg straight.
A bit of muscle wastage.
That bruise took months to fully disapear.
Nice smooth legs!
Bandage off and forty staples removed.
