Penny has been to The Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre today. She has badly torn knee ligaments and will be in her brace for a further 12 weeks. I have to drive her everywhere whilst she wears the brace. She's very positive despite being stir crazy.
She was most impressed with the young registrar that dealt with her. He is also a keen skier so they bonded well.
Speaking of which, through FB I see Mr and Mrs XB have joined the ranks of us skiers, but are currently marooned at Geneva Airport.
Daffs, that has to be the day from hell. Hope the cottage gets you both back to full chat
Penny update. We spent the morning at the Trauma Unit in Oxford. She's been assessed and has severely mullered her ligaments. She has mri scans this Saturday at 8 am in Oxford then will end up at The Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre for final fettling in the future. They seem.confident that she'll ski again (if she wants to) but we don't have a time frame for recovery yet. In the meantime she has to wear a full leg brace to stabilise her leg.
She is very grateful for all the thoughts and good wishes and I'm doing my best to look after her.
Despite her trashed knee, Penny has had a great time. The company was first class, thanks to our Cornish friends for that. She is full of it at the moment, she got the right side of a steak dinner and some Rioja, so her world is quite rosy.
Thanks everyone for your thoughts and best wishes, i'll make sure she's well taken care of now.
