      I know its not good, I did put forward all reports and how long I will be unable to walk for, if that makes a difference, not sure it does but can only hope.

      Maybe someone can let us know, mines going to be somewhat permanent which I'm sad about and will do everything in my power and God's to be mobile again.

      I should hope you will, no point being on the receiving end and not making them suffer LOL my OH had been fantastic in fact he's gone above and beyond the call of duty, funny cause he fed me loads of crap and I still didn't lump weight on, must be true what they say healing bones need more calories
