    Gidday friends,
    Ive been flat on my back so havent been here, ive been in hospital as when I went to come down the 6 steps out the back my "gammy leg" from MS decided not to work so I went for a huge stack!!!This is the 3rd stack that i have had in a few weeks so im getting sick of falling!!
    Anyhow I phoned health first who are an advisory medical service run by nurses, I only phoned to get advice as to hot or cold packs, they chatted about my symptoms and I realised that my collarbone was swollen and bruised so they told me to wait here while they sent an ambulance!!
    I was flat on a board all day waiting for xrays which showed a minor fracture.
    Then tonite I ran out of petrol in the dark and the lady at the petrol station wouldnt even lend me a jerry can to go and refuel my poor car!!!a lovely lady with a jerry can in her truck saved me!!!
    Wow its good to be alive!!!!and home in my bed!!!

    Oh Banty, you poor dear!! Please take it easy for a few days. Your body needs time to heal before you get back out there to work on the new pens. I know you feel they Have to get done....but if your reinjure yourself...it will only be longer untill they get done. I can't believe that old biddy would not help you with your petrol. Jeesh! She is setting up for bad karma. Glad there was someone there to help. Be carefull....take small steps...and please let yourself heal before taking on projects!!

    Okiechick and Bantymum---so very sorry to hear you two are down. Please, follow medical orders or you will just have a setback. I wish I were near you Bantymum/Okie I would be glad to pitch in and help you all out to lighten up your worries about things getting done.
    Bantymum, I was wondering what was up as I saw you were gone again. You must take care of yourself.
