Home , at last from a long day in Emergency department at Dunedin Hospital . Why we were sent to ED I will never know, but we sat there from 11.30am until about 3.30, quite obviously Andrew was not an urgent case. Guess we should take comfort in that! Anyway by 5.30 we were pretty much out of there with a plaster cast in tow. Andrew is going to be even heavier for me to lug around now, reckon I will be a contender for the iron woman contest at the end of it all! If Andrew was a walker the Doc said they would have had to put in a metal plate because the break was so bad, but as walking is not looking likely in the near future they went with plaster. Lot less risky for people in his situation by all accounts. After plaster the x-ray showed that the leg was in the wrong position. his lower leg has a slight bend in it where it should be straight. However after another hours wait it was decided that as he doesn't use his legs it would be okay for it to stay that way, unless down the track his bones don't fuse together!! I guess they are the guys who's professional opinion we are supposed to trust. So I have fingers crossed and am tiring not to cringe too much at the thought of how painful it might be if Andrew had feeling!!
I guess tomorrow it will be back to Oamaru hospital for blood tests again and back onto the DVT treatment. Oh for just a little time out in my craft room!
Had to replace our washing machine, the repair man seemed to think it had lived out it's life span of a whole seven years!
Thank you all so much for your well wishes and kind thoughts, that is lovely of you all.
I do hope everyone of you out there had a wonderful day. Bye for now.XX
Just want to say thankyou to those of you who have been kind enough to take the time to leave a comment or sign my guest book. Always get a buzz out of knowing people have been here for a wee look! THANK YOU!!
