Spare a thought for...


... my son, B, who dislocated his finger falling off his bike yesterday. Loking at this, someone said, "hasn't he got lovely fingers?" Not any more, he hasn't.

In case you were wondering, he went into A&E and had it "popped" back. The last time I heard from him he was feeling "sore and grumpy".

  1. Ouch.

    Hope it isn't painful for long.

  2. Hair-raising!! I get goosebumps just listening to someone describing how they dislocated or twisted or squeezed some part of their bodies... Can't look at wounds etc. on humans, but strangely enough, I don't mind touching and treating animals with whatever is the matter with them. I'm only squeamish when it comes to humans, with animals I'm very much a "hands on and no fuss" person - not because I care less about animals (quite the contrary).

    Hopefully, your son's sore- and grumpiness will pass soon.

    1. I suppose we all identify with human ailments, Meike.

  3. That sounds painful. At least they were able to pop it back, so no bones broken.

  6. Well by now B should be less sore and, hopefully, less grumpy. Was it a pedal bike? Are they safer than horses?

    1. Yes. A pedal bike. He's a keen cyclist. As for the horse thing, you can be very cruel,sometimes, Graham (I nearly fell off this morning).

    2. Frances per hour ridden I've probably got a much worse track record than you have when it comes to falling off a horse. I just learned my lesson and after getting back on as soon as the first wound had reasonably healed I re-mounted and when we were at a canter (I hated cantering - so much harder than a full gallop) the horse stumbled and we nearly parted company again. That was the last time I rode. I'm a quick learner.
