Sis and I set off about 2.00pm to walk the dogs, by 2.10 she was taking the dogs home and I was sitting on the ground phoning for an ambulance. I slipped on the wet, cobbled, steep lane and heard the most almighty crack.

Hospital staff have been great, if very busy. I am currently in bed in a single room, with fingers crossed that I can have a theatre slot tomorrow, so that dr can take the bone fragments out of the way and pin/plate my right leg.

Neighbour and sis looked after me, tried to keep me warm, dry and entertained while waiting the hour for the ambulance to arrive and sis brought a mounting block for me to rest my leg against. She had to sit on it to stop it sliding off down the hill.

I was NOT planning on being in hospital at this time.

Ouch, sorry to hear about your accident. But smart thinking of your sister/you to use a mounting block as an aid in the situation.

Hope they can make time for you in the theatre today, fingers crossed for an uneventful, as quick as possible road to recovery.

No, no, a thousand times, no! What an absolutely rotten thing to happen.
I hope your surgery goes well and you are home very soon.

Fingers crossed that you can get your surgery today and start the road to recovery, you sound amazingly positive although it must have hurt dreadfully! I do hope all goes well for you today x

OMG PaS! I didn't expect to read that.

I hope the surgery goes well today and that you are soon back on both feet.
