Eish, just hope all heals well.  Strongs Misty.

There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
There is society, where none intrudes,
By the deep Sea, and music in its roar:
I love not Man the less, but Nature more"

I have visited her, and Misty looks great ( sort of ) despite the surgery and knee brace.
She is enjoying the messages and contact with sanity.
They tell me that hospitals are nice, quiet, warm places. I am still looking for that one.

Clinicians can contact the clinicians' hotline number on 0800 111 131 (for doctors only); and, in addition to 0800 029 999, the public can also contact the public hotline number on 0800 111 132. These lines all operate 24 hours a day.

This may be just the right time to make cousins etc. By the time they (Yes TWO!! ) are out of nappies and so on, and easier to handle, you are fit as a fiddle and can take the chances to ride again (Mommie, please can I come wiff!!)

Popped in last night, and Misty is looking ok, but you can hear the sadness about not being able to ride anything for a long while! 
Maybe we should start a thread about possible new hobbies for her over the next 2 years.... ?

Dangerous territory there Sunny!!!

Her bike was her baby. She mentioned something about taking up open water diving next but I'm not sure if that was when she was still on the morphine... and then theres that mountain bike at home as well, anything but babies...

Glad to hear T is doing fine :thumleft:

Get her a Suzzi Jimny and let her do 4x4 :mwink:

Will also work well as she can still join on the rides and be the drinks carrier :ricky:

So YEA I'm back home, was rather a sore affair to get out and up the stairs, but here I am and soooo glad to be!!!

Yup ADV, not too worry Cave Girl has organised for me to be hooked up to sanity, she borrowed me her pc and 3g - thanks S!! :) you've been a real life saver.

eSKaPe is taking very good care of me, he even baked fresh bread for dinner tonight  :mwink:

Wont be too mobile for a while, but hopefully be hooked up workwise from next week.

Thanks to all for your thoughts and well wishes - see ya out there  ;)
