Back to the hospital today

Today we had an appointment with the surgeon who operated on Dean's leg. He's very pleased with the way the leg is healing. Thank Goodness. A full fibre glass cast went on today and that will be on for four weeks when we go back again to have another x-ray.
The surgeon showed us today where he had plated and screwed one of the breaks and said the bone had splintered which required a few screws. The other break which he didn't operate on is looking good. Still no weight on the leg for the next four week and when he's sitting, the leg has to be elevated.

I'm trying to get back to feeling my normal self and not so run down.
Thanks so much for all your messages of good will, they are very much appreciated.
I so want to get in and make a card or something but just cannot find the energy to even start.
Not to worry, I'll get there. lol
Until next time.....bye.

Hey Leigh!

Sorry to hear about your son! Keeping you all in our thoughts! And don't forget to rest yourself!!

Hi Leigh,

Don't stress about not feeling like being crafty - you've had a very stressfull couple of weeks and that would take it's toll on anyone! Your mojo will come back soon, you'll see!

In the mean time just relax a bit if you can. Hope Dean gets on the mend soon!

Hope things get back to normal for you soon. Make sure you take care of yourself, remember you can't take care of him if you are rundown.
