Tale of woe

Postby carastro » Tue Dec 06, 2016 11:43 pm

I have been in hospital for just over a week got home late yesterday.

Was walking my dog in the park and she was chasing around (being chased) by a large German Shepherd who crashed into my right knee fracturing my tibia and knee joint. I won't go into all the hassle of getting me out of the park and home with the dog except I was sitting in the park in the dark while help was sought, but suffice it to say the owner and friends got me home where I called an ambulance. Had to have surgical repair and now have pins and plate in my right knee, can't put any weight on that leg for 6 weeks, so have been mobilised on a zimmer with arms rests and have to hop. Now home with loads of apparatus.

VERY difficult to do anything, but I decided upstairs was the best place for me otherwise my own energetic dog would be too much "in my face" and further risk of her knocking me over, so I crawled up stairs slowly on my bum with great difficulty and will stay there until I have to go to Outpatients. Hubby lets her up for convenient moments.

So no imaging from me for some time to come. One of my astro friends is going to de-rig the observatory for me, next week some time.

:( :(

I managed to get online on my Smartphone in hospital but its very small and fiddly, so didn't want to type any more than necessary.
