Put some water in it next time :wink:

Seriously I hope the pain is tolerable and that it mends without further complications.

Eight years at a boarding school in the 1950s. Prepares you for anything. Shrug it off man!

Thanks everyone. Lovely painkillers allow me to be away with the fairies when needed.

First strip bath and shower down this morning, (thanks Jan), and I feels much much better.

I did need two doses of morphine before the ambulance crew could move me and I DO have a very high pain thresh-hold.

A wet laminate floor was to blame.

Well, I saw one of the surgeons today. Got to wait another week for more X-Rays before a final decision on pinning surgery. The fracture is apparently slightly angular.

Right arm the old pint-lifting arm, eh? Unless of course you're ambidextrous. I got matt finish tiles in my bathroom. Harder to clean but less likely to fall on your arse on.

Not ambi-whatsit. However, learning to do a lot of things left-handed.

Good News from the top saw-bones at ESH yesterday.

The fracture has straightened and is showing good signs of knitting.

Pinning not now needed. Just possibly a plate after 16 weeks if the joint looks weak.

Good news from a Saw Bones who doesn't saw bones. Whatever in 16 weeks you should still demand that he gives you a plate (of Cully and Lice)
