Thermal baths and broken bones.
Our “R&R” in Hegyko as now turned into rest and rehabilitation instead. On our trip to the thermal spa where we wallowed happily in the thermal pools for a couple of hours, disaster struck as Pete slipped on wet tiles and broke his femur.The last 2 days have been a blur of hospital,confusion, panic, pain and rather a lot of unhappiness. But Eeyore has it right and it could have been worse and Pete received speedy treatment, being operated on very quickly.He is doing well and walking with a zimmer frame (!) and is very determined to get back to normal (whatever that is) as quickly as possible. He is even being obedient and doing his exercises as instructed.We have managed to laugh at the irony of visiting the “Wellness Centre” to ease aches and muscular strain and leaving with a broken bone and unimaginable pain!
It looks as if the elephant might have to be put in the fridge for a while and we are using our insurance , which we hoped we would never have to do , to get us home. Pete is being very positive and describing this as a blip and there is talk of us continuing the trip when he is able. We shall see. Healing could take anything from 6 to 12 weeks.
Thank you for reading our blogs. The positive feedback we have had and the kind comments have been so encouraging and for two people who were rather cynical about actually writing a blog, I think we might be converted! I hope I can say,”to be continued”…………….
There was a young man called Pete
Who couldn’t stay up on his feet.
He slipped and he fell
The pain it was hell
Postponing the elephant to eat.
