Thank you ALL so much for your caring words. The hospital is about 20 minutes away. You are absolutely right, mrsmac, we never realise how much effort it takes, until it happens to us personally. But on the other hand, am blessed to have wonderful parents, and am happy to help where I can. Others are not as fortunate.

Sorry, mrsmac, meant to ask how your hubby is now, before clicking on 'post reply' button? Hope his injuries weren't too serious?

Compound fracture of both bones in his leg,he lost 30mm of bone from his tibia on the Pacific Highway! He had a bone graft last week and no one has actually told us when he can walk again.The accident was on 18th May so its been a long road, he's bored out of his mind sitting at home all this time. There's only so much daytime TV you can watch!!!

mrsmac, that sounds extremely painful. As long as he is on the mend, thats most important - even if slowly. For about 3 weeks, my Dad was regressing, so recovery was set back somewhat.

Do you have a playstation or similar? If not, what about borrowing one? They are excellent 'time wasters'. LOL.

Gee, I wouldn't mind having all that. We haven't got cable connected here, actually dont even have broadband either. LOL. I probably wouldn't have time to watch cable TV, too addicted to the puter.

What about a trip to the library to pick out some books? Dont know what else to suggest. I do understand about him being 'stir-crazy' though.
