I was supposed to be doing a first aid exam for my dad today and mum was looking after the girls for me. About half 9 I had finally got all 3 dressed and went upstairs to get myself dressed. Suddenly the door goes, and there is a girl I went to school with holding my mum up.
The daftie had been changing from her normal specs to sunglasses, lost her footing and ended up in the road. 2 wee men helped her up and at that Donna passed [smilie=angel.gif] . She brought mum up to my house and I knew instantly her wrist was broken.
Aunt Margaret was phoned and as soon as she arrived we headed to A&E . Meanwhile I'm trying to phone Neil my sis and my dad ( who had his phone off as he was teaching)
Mum spent the morning saying her wrist was just strained - erm no it's not :lol:
So yes it is broken, I rushed over to do the exam for dad who was stressed out his box. Neil cancelled his meetings to come home as Aunt M had people coming over at 5pm for dinner.

So mum going to have a stookie on her arm while we on holiday - talk about a tan line :lol: :lol:
Back to fracture clinic tomorrow - argh am down a baby sitter for a while :( hehehe
In the meantime, does anyone have spare cotton wool we can use to wrap my mother up in? :lol:

Don't have any spare cotton wool - just don't let her out of the door & she should be ok.

Seriously, hope she doesn't feel too sore & she can still enjoy her holiday & time with the kids, even if she can't help yet (I'm confident you will soon figure out a method to get her to help you Fi) xxxxx

Fracture clinic this morning and she needs a plate in her wrist. Operation scheduled for Monday am :(
She bit gutted herself that she missed her eyebrow wax this morning :lol: but tried to hold Abbie this afternoon and couldn't so gutted about that too.
Cast to stay on for 3-5 weeks depends how quickly she heals (fingers crossed for 3 weeks as we go away in 4 :lol: )
Looks like will be chapping mums neighbours door to get wee Sara to help me feed a baby Tuesday and Wednesday nights from now on :thumleft:
That's it locking mum in - yeah that'll make her rest :wink:
Xx

Ruddy mothers!! At least your mother was sober! Mine broke her wrist when she was, shall we say a tad merry, on her work's Christmas night out a few years ago!!

I think Ella should personalise Granny's stookie! Hope she's a quick healer hun x
