There is a rapture on the lonely shore,

I popped in to see Moondog this morning...he is in good spirits...apparently his physio is a nubile little blonde...so hes not complaining too much...we ate ice lollies together and spoke about life in the hospital, life on the bike...and future plans for commuting...he expressed his gratitude to the WD ..says its amazing how it cheers you up when people support you like this...!!! i took some pics...but stopped short of covering the catheter......all i can say is...drink more water Moondog.... :imaposer:    looks like he can go home tuesday? yippeee...

Sorry to hear about your incident.  Get well bud. Thinking of you. Now its time to take a Loooonngggg sevatical, and recover fully, before riding boneys again.  These fractures are big time KarK.

Your health is far more important than your bike. STRUUUUEEEEEE  ;D

The pics look worse than it is - there was quite a lot of blood after the op, but its all cleaned up and pipes taken away, so I am actually in great spirits. Looking forward to going home. And thanks again everyone for the visits, messages, etc, etc - the dogs are a great lot.

Keep up the good cheer Tony. Again just shout if you need some help getting around and we'll make a plan.
That brace they've put on your leg looks quite technical and should keep you occupied for a while! :biggrin: Prolly pop in this evening again...........  :thumleft:
