Twas I Wheelman just missed you :thumleft:

Spoke to the family. He was in recovery with one eye tring to spy on the nurses :ricky:

Message later from his good lady Wilda was:
Tony out of theatre after many hours and now in ICU. Vital signs look good and he has spoken to me.
He feels no pain at the moment but has a built-in mecano set - I saw the xrays!

Wilda travels the same route as Tony to work so she happened to be a few hundred metres behind him when he had is incident. He phoned her and said "I've broken my leg. What do I do ... Where's the hospital.." So she rode alongside him to the hospital, getting weaker as he went along. Drenched in sweat on arrival.  :o

Let me put this into perspective. I witnessed a similar injury a while ago - seven piece break on the same bone. The chap couldn't be moved an inch, even after 2 Myprodols. He refused to be moved. Just lifting him into a van had him screaming blue murder.

Tony, you're one tough SOB.

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm,  White Rhino, see you spotted one :imaposer: Sorry to have missed you. Will catch up another day.

Hey Tony, glad you're on the mend bud.... Not too long and we can sell all the metal for beer! Shout if you need help with anything. When do they let you out or can we come past this evening for some more "nurse spotting" :biggrin:...
