I am taking a break right now.  A break!  Ha Ha!  This one is out of my control.

On Wednesday I told you about a fall I had and that after 3 hours in A&E I was told there were no bones broken and allowed to drive home alone.

By Thursday things were different.  Half the right side of my face was numb and there was blood in the mucous I coughed up.

I drove back to the same A&E Department at my Local Area Hospital. I saw the same team who looked after me on Tuesday.

Eight hours later (with no food) and several CAT Scans of my face and head, I was informed that there were two breaks in the bone immediately under my eye and a possible further break to a bone at the base of my skull.  Again (knowing I was alone) I was allowed to drive home, with an appointment for The Ulster Hospital, Dundonald, on the eastern edge of Belfast, on Monday afternoon.

Elly is on her way and should be here shortly.

I am in no form for reading of any kind, Posts for Thursday and yesterday were pre scheduled, and there are a few more in the pipeline.  Please forgive me for not replying to comments or visiting other blogs at the moment.  My body needs rest and I am listening to it.

Elly will post an update after the hospital visit.

Don’t worry, I will soon be back teasing and playing with you all.

I hope @eolai won’t want to paint my multicoloured face when he arrives on Tuesday.
