Hi Guys

Many thanks for all the comments.

I managed to get a laptop into hospital and they have free wifi :D :D :D , so will be keeping up to date with all 80-90 happenings

I was on a flat roof, thank god it was only 8 feet up. Rafter gave way and I have broken 3 ribs and cracked the transverse process on 3 vertebrae, so quite luck really. My own fault should have checked the structure in more detail.

Its bloody painful though even with the morphine in the PCA.

Hope to be out soon and get a dose of Syncro off roading for therapy :D will have to take some extra diazepam and double dragon along

Cheers Folks

Yikes! Speedy recovery Rich. I never liked diazepam when I had it prescribed, for what turned out to be dislocated ribs!

Wishing you a speedy recovery Rich. Welsh hospitals sound better than English ones - we pay for wifi.
As Clive says - make sure you do the exercises. The short-term pain gives long-term gain.
