    Hi All,

    just to let you know I am in hospital tomorrow for an operation to remove some broken bone fragments from my right elbow joint. This means I will be in hospital overnight, plus I may not be able to type easily for at least a couple of weeks, so please don't worry about me if I seem to be online less often for a short while. Trust me, as soon as my elbow is mobile again I shall be back here as per normal.

    Take Care All

      just to say good luck, and don't forget to take a couple of books with you, as It gets very boring after an op just sitting there staring at everything! cheers Nell

            Thanks Stevennix, it is my own fault really, as I fell off a chair by our fishing lake at a friend's Birthday party (after quite a bit of alcohol) and landed on my elbow. Fortunately it was on a grass surface or it could have been much worse!!

    Hi Misty,

    This is Beautybabe, we haven't met yet, but I know all about going into hospital, as I spent half my life in an out for one thing or another mainly bowel surgery.
    Anyway, I just wanted to wish you all best for a speedy recovery .I just had surgery on my shoulder, and in the new year I am going to have the other one done. I hope we can catch up again later, when you have had your surgery, so take care and I will be thinking about you Misty God Bless BB

    Don’t get yourself down about your restricted typical, look for the “humorous” and you’ll be great.

    Speedy recovery, mistyhorizon.  (Of course, you may figure out how to type even with an "iffy", post-surgery, elbow.)   smile

    Misty,
    I wish you well.  Hurry back.  I'm going to find out this same thing early next year when I have surgery.

    Thanks everyone, I am really touched by all your well wishes. I am back from the hospital now and they have removed a large piece of loose bone fragment (approx 1 inch long) from my elbow joint, plus two other smaller pices. Unfortunately they say my elbow joint has suffered some wear and tear because of this and the surface of it is quite roughened, so it is very likely I will get arthritis in it in later life. The good news is I have just realised I can still type if I rest my forearm on my lap and work from the wrist only, so should be back to normal output soon big_smile

    Nice to be back from the hospital too, nothing beats being in your own home and your own bed smile
