The Surgery

Thank you my dear friends for all the e-mails and the posts of support that I received after my incident.
As you know last monday I got home after 13 days in the hospital to rebuild my thigh bone broken in 2 parts with pieces everywhere. The surgery was difficult and 3 hours long, after it I had many complications: temperature, anaemia (I needed 5 transfusions), colitis and an inflammation of the bladder for the catheter.
How happened? I was coming back from work and, as usual, I was parking my scooter before taking the keys to enter the garage but..... I made a mistake, I didn’t block it very well and it fell on me. Because of the fall and the weight of the scooter I got the fractures. The pain was terrible, ferociuos, unbealivable.
Now I am home weak and with pain everywhere. I must use crutches to “learn” to walk but, until the end of october, without pushing on the injuried leg.
Now I am too tired to post and comment, so I will be far from Blogland for a while, but as soon as possible I come back, because I want to keep in touch with all of you.
Thank you again my dear friends. See you soon.......and I will run again. The Black Knight doesn’t surrender.

  1. What a sad story. Sounds like the scooter fell on you in the worst way possible.

    You are strong and you will heal. Of course you don't surrender - You are the Victorious Black Knight!

    Best wishes to you as you heal.

  2. oh my goodness. I am sorry to hear about the fracture and surgery. Hopefully you will heal fast just like lady Katy who hates toast.

  3. I wish you a speedy recovery. Just remember that if all goes well, you will benefit from the long rest and be stronger when you are able to walk and run on your own. I was on crutches for four months: the upside is you really give your upper body a workout. Get well, oh mighty knight.

  15. The enemy placed a Trojan Horse right at the very gate to your castle. But you knew their tricks and battled the craven lurkers bravely, turning them back before they could gain entry to your household. Duty well done, recover speedily and come back stronger than ever!

  16. Ouch! You need to make up a good story about how a charging dragon tried to take a chomp out of your leg. It will sound better than "scooter fell on me".

    I understand that surgery is much faster for healing - so you're on the road to being on the road sooner. Heal fast!
