We live almost 1 kilometre from the hospital where I was having a total knee replacement. I had care lined up for Ch 8am til 12, afternoons was ABI daughter who has aphasia and evening was teacher daughter picking up Ch and taking him out to our old place to stay overnight where she now lives. I told him 'if you want to visit you must get a taxi'. So on day 2 teacher daughter arrives saying I just left Dad in the emergency downstairs. He was walking to hosp with ABI daughter and had fallen twice. ... ho ho ho you may well say. But ABI daughter had phoned me and the message was "we are walking to you ... oh ... oops ... dad down ....", and silence. He arrived with bandaged knees and elbows in a wheelchair having picked up by a couple of nurses. Laugh -it could have been worse... val

Oh my goodness!!! Thankfully you have retained a sense of humour one of those laugh or cry situations I suspect!!!!!
Hope your recovery goes smoothly - with no further incidents - look after yourself
Sending lots of love
Carry on laughing, it makes you feel much better than crying does. I hope the rest of the week is uneventful......but if it isn’t, carry on laughing 😆.
How wonderful that his desire to get to you was so strong he'd go to all that trouble...😌
Oh you made me laugh, I agree with Anne he just wanted to be with you, he must love you very much. Yvonne xxxx
Glad you saw the funny side. Some humour definitely helps with this.
Hope the knee op. went OK.
Scared but funny at the same time, as if you haven't enough on your plate. Keep on smiling.
Good Morning Crab - I love your humor! I believe humor is a major blessing in this life. I would be lost without it.
Thankful for all of you that it was not worse.

Hi Val, hope you are recovering well after your operation. I admire your hubby's determination in getting to see you. Hope he is ok now. Keep that humour, it's lovely. Love Nanny857xx
