Ouch! sad

Are you going to have to stay in hospital all that time?

Do you one of those little tv things at your bed with the internet connection?

Not much consolation but atleast you can get on here for a chat and not just laying staring at the walls.

Wags Sat 27-Dec-08 10:43:18

Oh my word, poor you, what a nightmare! <Wags sneeks a bottle of wine into the hospital and hands twofalls a large glass>

Wags Sat 27-Dec-08 10:43:46

sneaks even grin

Ow, ow, ow. sad You poor thing.

alicecrail Sat 27-Dec-08 10:46:58

You poor thing! Broke my leg when pregnant - not ideal. Try and make the most of it and look on the brightside: no housework, lots of attention and sympathy and all the trashy mags you can read with time to actually read them! I really do know how hard it is, but try and stay positive or you'll go mad! good luck with the op

Ouch! Poor you. I broke my ankle stupidly falling over once after stepping off a kerb badly. It is really painful. Hopefully they'll give you a walking cast after your op and you should find you're able to stay fairly mobile.

twofalls Sat 27-Dec-08 16:23:17

thank you [quaffs wine sneakily]
that is how i am trying to see it alicerail - my friend as been here all afternoon and we have read mags and had a good nattter. and have telly, internet. and wine and choc from you lot i am set up!

bythesea, how long afteryour op were you mobile?

twofalls Wed 31-Dec-08 20:36:16

hello, still here. had op on monday but because we all overlook the fact i sprained the other ankle, am still not safely mobile. just want to be at home sad

foxinsocks Wed 31-Dec-08 20:39:37

oh poor you

callmeovercautious Wed 31-Dec-08 20:40:03

Oh no - just saw this sad

Do you know when you will be home? Are you on a ward? Hope it is not too dire!

DumbledoresGirl Wed 31-Dec-08 20:42:35

Gosh, poor you twofalls. You are going to remember this Christmas for a long time to come. Any chance of a NY party on the ward tonight?

Ponders Wed 31-Dec-08 20:42:44

Oh twofalls, you poor thing sad

Do look on bright side, could have been much worse, esp with child in arms shock - hope they will let you out soon but BE CAREFUL grin

twofalls Wed 31-Dec-08 20:47:57

dg, unlikely with this rather ageing lot bless em grin

i know ponders it could have been worse. when i saw dd earlier i kept thinking that.

thanks for good wishes. have certtainly had chance to reflect inhere. noe realise i am not indistructable!!

so slow at typing. tiny keboard.

foxinsocks Wed 31-Dec-08 20:49:10

a friend of dh's broke his leg last year and got stuck on the ward too waiting for an op

I was really surprised that he, at the age of about 45, was the youngest on the ward by a good 20 years or so!

hope they let you out soon!

twofalls Wed 31-Dec-08 20:50:36

twofalls Wed 31-Dec-08 20:56:12

Saturn74 Wed 31-Dec-08 20:57:10
