My Hernia & Dave

The Humber Bridge

I had an appointment yesterday with my hernia consultant.

I saw Mr Yoga and I half expected to walk in and find him in the lotus position. Thankfully he had his feet firmly on the floor.

He examined my belly and also got me to cough too, which wasn’t hard to do as I’m full of cold.

Everything is fine and he discharged me which was a relief. I asked him about doing any form of exercise and was told to carry on with the brisk walking but not to do any running or anything else until the end of March.

I travelled on train back to Hull as it worked out cheaper than it would have if I’d have put petrol in the car. On leaving Doncaster station I saw a red fox, never seen one before and he looked gorgeous, shame I didn’t have my camera at the ready.

On returning back to Newcastle, I was greeted at the door by Bertie & Molly and a Quasimodo look-a-like with a snotty nose.
It was Dave, he too has a bad cold AND a sore rib.
He went to the doctors as I got home and came back with the news that he’s fractured a rib and torn a cartilage off it too!

All we can think is that when he’s sat in his chair, Molly loves to dive on him! She’s only little and skinny but goes at some speed to get on him.

He’d taken them both for a walk yesterday afternoon and they both pulled at the same time, that’s when the heavy pain arrived!
He’s now on painkillers.

Welcome back Tracey hahaha
