Thanks so much to everyone for all those comments yesterday, and please forgive the 'blanket' (ha, ha, ha), 'cover note' (ha ha hah) to show my appreciation for everyone's concern!

As usual, the Girls showed concern, compassion and just a tinge of worry across those little brows, and the Blokes just got worse and worse with all their various minor-to-major wounds until Kev mentioned the snip!

Then everyone piled in; so no change there!

It was so easy! Mrs S driving the ambulance, the best NHS care one could wish for, and in and out in a few hours! The Staff at Crowborough are a lovely group, their kindness just heals by itself, and Sister Carole got a peck on the cheek, just because I felt like thanking her like I would anyone else, for her goodwill and highly respected skills!

The south-paw has a bandage the size of an elephant's foot with an industrial boiler insulation jacket on, and I'm back home for a few days hols until I can drive, and then will be as fit as a fit person' s fit bits!

Glad to hear it worked out nicely for you.

I hope they didn't ply you with anti-biotics, my doctor flatmate tells me they are the quickest route to getting seriously ill..!

I am sure a little glass of something later would help...just keep the wounded paw out of reach of crockery, and could do more damage with that bandage than an ecstatic labrador's tail. x

I hope you didn't cry, Scrobs. One handed typing should be interesting.

Open fasciectomy...? Have we been imbibing too much again?

How!... as Jack Hargreaves would say.

Sen. C.R.O'Blene said...

Ahem, A.A.A-H,

What a pleasure to hear from you again!

Yes...; one of the causes has been claimed to be the odd 'demi-coupitre' of vin rouge, which is a rarity these days of course!

We are considering futures in the Chardonnay crop these days, as everyone else seems to shun this excellent grape!

So it can't be that!

Sen. C.R.O'Blene said...

Ed, thanks!

I managed to get over them early on - just wait till the elephant's leg bandage comes off though...!

Sen. C.R.O'Blene said...

Lilith, thanks again!

Definitely nowhere near the Meissen, but as AAAH points out, the causes of the condition can be put down to other breakables...!

What me?

Sen. C.R.O'Blene said...

E-K, Nope!

Didn't hurt, didn't hurt, didn't ....hurt....

Metody Jankowiak said...

... or anticonvulsants perhaps?

Sen. C.R.O'Blene said...


Possibly, but one doctor asked me - seriously - if I operated a road drill!

Mrs S nearly exploded.

What are anticonvulsants anyway? Aren't they just 'convulsants'?
