Thanks for all the support guys - the calls, BBMs, SMS's and visits - and to Would-I and Great White for taking my baby to safety - appreciate it guys (and girls). Man, it sucks to pee in a bottle!

Man, it sucks to pee in a bottle!

 ;D be thankful you dont have to lift yourself on to a pan every time, just that small movement made me cringe! Hmm then again the catheter was even worse... sorry ok Im not making you feel any better am I  ;) :) - good luck for the op today, hope they treat you well!! PS: did you hurt ligaments too?

Popped in to see T last nite while I was at Wilgeheuwel seeing someone else - he may not remember as he was floating on the pain killers but all the best for today and the path to recovery.

Jeez Tony. No faith in our ambulance programme, so you ride yourself to shpital with a broken leg  :o

Hope the op procedure is mere formalities and you recover quickly.

So you will be needing to do some tinkering while you idle for 6 weeks  :biggrin: Your time will not go wasted, I'm pretty sure.

I'd rather have a full bottle in front of me than a full frontal lobotomy
