Life with a cast

Tyler returned to Kew Hospital last Friday to attend Fracture Clinic. This usually entails an enormous amount of waiting around in between checking in, getting x-rayed, seeing a specialist and then any cast work to be done, but we were done and dusted in about 2 hours 20 minutes. X-rays show the bones is healing, but the doctor decided that the cast needed to be extended above the elbow to stop any rotation of the elbow making the bones move at the wrist. 

Because the existing cast was working well, they elected to do the fibreglass casting over the top of it and onwards past the elbow. Tyler chose a nice bright yellow. He thinks this will be a good colour for people to write on :)  He has an another check this Friday and assuming all ok, he will be in the cast for another 5 weeks. Thank goodness this didn't happen during swimming and Flippa Ball season. 

On Saturday I had my long-awaited performance as Dido in a concert performance of Purcell's opera Dido & Aeneas. Got my photo in the paper on the Saturday morning. 

After an amazingly good summer and unseasonably-mild Autumn, winter knocked loudly on the door today with wind, rain, hail and thunderstorms. 

I have a few random photos in the camera which I will download soon.
