Carers & Christmas? Hospitals of course...

Hi Guys, we're just back from hospital.
What would a Carer's Christmas be without a visit to the A & E!

Coo cracked his foot during a seizure last night Ouch!
Problem is, every time he had another seizure the limb jerking was pretty bad and by morning he just couldn't cope with the pain any longer.

We called the doctor, who advised us to take a trip to A&E for an X-ray.
Well, after a day of being poked and prodded at the hospital, it's good news - nothings broken! Woo-hoo!
It's a soft tissue injury and while painful,(especially if you're seizing, bouncing about and limb jerking said foot all the time - it will heal on it's own... eventually!
So maybe not so Woo-hoo after all but at least it's not an admission this time!

I don't think it helped any when I told him..."You know Coo, there are easier ways of getting out of Christmas shopping"!
His answer...un-printable! LOL

Let's hope he heals quickly!

and it's raining here again so 1,2, never rains but it pours!

I'm glad that it wasn't a fracture! But I know from experience that soft tissue injuries can be just as painful. Poor Coo - I hope that the pain eases in time for his Xmas dinner.

So glad no break. My son thought he broke his tailbone. But they said there is nothing they can do for it if he did. It would heel on its own too. But he did need pain pills. Hope all is better by Christmas. Or less painfull anyway. Have a Merry one.
