a few more dodgy iPhone photos found today ……husbands should not have iPhones in ED

I found this photo in the phone, Chris must have been having a ball taking photos with the phone

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

He was obviously impressed with these colours.

So impressed he did the other side as well.How many photos did he think were needed, my current thoughts now are

Chris was still snapping away, I'm now wondering what they thought I'd need my reading glasses on for in the EDre.

Why they thought I needed reading glasses? I'd had so much morphine I could barely remember my name.

To Satisfy A-M who wanted a weird Druggy post (had all my meds tonight so am very “loose brained”)

The T Hospital sent me home with absolutely no injuries to my back, the next morning.

These two highly trained Medical Porfessionals administered Mexican Back Cure

ure

One night at home since the big crash - the dodgies were administering special Mexican massage.

With affection - but sheese that is one ugly shot of me!

 

Hi and good night all,

Lou

We interrupt this interruption to blogging .. with an iPhone supplied blog.

All photos still locked within Aperture in MacBook,

so that’s it for me folks.

Lou

Eureka, got some photos out of my iPhone today,

1 Blog coming right now.

 

Dodgy reunion at mater Hospital yesterday.

There's our mum, yippee, AND, that big puddle is actually not the result of Siggi wetting his pants in excitement.

They are brothers, litter mates, born (and witnessed by staff) at RSPCA, name Dodgy Brothers might make sense to you all now.

Look, real clothes, real shoes, and real Dodgy Brothers. The sit outside lasted 4 minutes. PJs on and in bed within 10 mins.

I’m practising how to cover up the brace – the Dodgy Cuddle did help.

I will post (like FF tee hee – NOT)

my hilarious attempts to fashionista a back brace in time.

 

BAD NEWS

At least another two days in hospital – what is it with this place?

Even I can tell them it’s just a broken back,

won’t be any less broken at home!!!!!

Found this little gem in the iPhone photos I just downloaded. Mr iT must have taken it.

Ambulances and hospital Emergency Departments do very little to make you look acceptable for husbands with iPhones.

This Chihuahua is not trustworthy at breakfast tables

That’s all folks,

I’m been medicated for the night,

this will get weirder and weirder if I continue.

Cheers,

Lou

Sorry, small break in transmission… bit like this silly back I guess.

In wonderful and positive news I have a new toy,

It’s Aperture

a new photo storage and loader and thingy

from Apple.

AND I CAN’T MAKE HEAD NOR TAIL OF IT, AND ALL MY PHOTOS ARE IN THERE, AND GEOFFREY OUR IT GURU IS AWAY FOR 3 DAYS.

SO

EEEEEEEEK.

and

no photo blogs from me for a few days.

 

The News from Townsville

Still in Hospital.

no photos, they’re stuck in

computer.

BUT,

the room looks the same of course.

I have very sexy new back brace

it’s one for the shower –

strangely showering and drying off are up there with sitting

(in the pain magnification scale).

Lucky no photos –

cannot describe the mirror view of me, naked, with the new plastic shower brace that sort of frames the outline of the body, with all the rudey bits framed, pushed out and very highlighted for any viewers.

PROMISE – there will be zero viewers of this scene!

Still going out every day for an excursion to get ready to return home.

Supposed to be 2 hours max, but of course, Mr iT thinks we should

just pop in to Head Office and answer a few emails.

7 hours later, still in the Office, I start walking like a 98.7 year old who’s lost her zimmer frame.

Ever observant, Mr iT says to all an sundry

“Isn’t she doing well!”

YeAH – NOT!!

BTW The hospital

rings Mr iT after the “allowed” 2 hours are up, wanting to know where I am,

and he tells them

“Oh, I’m so sorry, I can’t get her out of the pub!”

 

 

Hmmmm, what else is happening,

The food service workers in Mater Hospital are ACE,

they look after me like a princess.

Yesterday I was a bit of a tragic (painwise) and must have been medicated (a lot) when I filled in the menu for today.

The gorgeous girls in the kitchen and food delivery

changed all my orders.

TEE HEE – I ordered 3 prunes for brekkie

a tomato for lunch

and a breadroll for dinner.

Duh – what planet was I on?

So the food angels added in the essentials

knowing what I like and hate, with big signs ALLERGIC to EGGS all over everything.

You girls rock.

I’m sure going to take a photo of them and do a blog about these angels.

What else,

Vertebra is 40% gone and won’t grow back.

I hope they weigh a lot, quick way to lose weight.

The Vertebra is fractured – so time will heal that.

Fracture is now misplaced, brace for 3 months – some fashion challenges ahead I feel.

House is a disaster – upstairs totally wrecked – ta Yasi – watch out A-M – you are about to receive LOTS of questions from me.

Dodgy Brothers told I’m coming home, so they are waiting at the door from garage every day.

Dolce the Ringneck – who owns me, will need a wingclip, as she is going to insist on sitting beside me for the next three months.

The wingclip is necessary as she’s an escape artist, and has had some major adventures – enough  for another whole blog.

 

Gosh blogging is dull without photos everyone,

my sincere apologies, I do try to be interesting and fun,

Love to all

LOU

Day 1000 and I made a run for it ….. the big escape!

 

 

 

So first you need a wheelchair

Doesn’t fold or collapse, so

Ring Adorable James to bring the shop van

 

Adorable James - tests safety of wheelchair.

So I’m loaded in Car, Wheelchair in shop van

Look who’s in the back seat of the car?

His Majesty, King of the Bladder Stones Surgery

 

 

And Serious Coffee Shop Afficionado

Yes, that’s his own  chair, his own cushion, his own puppychino.

When you are 16 (in March 2011), have a serious Heart Murmer, Breeze through 2 hour surgery, and are deaf -so you NEVER know you are in trouble,

the world is your oyster.

 

Health Inspector readers please note –

this shot was taken in Cafe Pupparama

Kalgoorlie

Western Australia.

 

Did you know that in Hospital - there is NO TOAST!

So, I had 3 serves.

YUMMO,

you can have all your fancy dancy brekkie gourmet delights

but 3 weeks without toast

is too much to bear.

 

Others opted for these dishes

But me

it was toast all the way baby.

 

 

How's the back brace going Lou?

Glad you asked, we’ve added a little extra.

The most wonderful lady at Wooly Fleece here in TVL, cut and sewed lambskin onto the chest piece yesterday, in 20 minutes.

What a trouper, it was almost closing time, and she said it was no trouble at all.

 

Mr iT and Adorable James congratulating themselves on getting rid of me me back to hospital , but I've Got to tell you the truth ..................

2 hours into my grand adventure

I was pining for my bed in the hospital

and some serious painkillers.

But God, I did not miss these green walls.

Even though yesterday, the Adorable James

Used one of his iPhone Apps (you know the thingy that tells you if things are straight – is it a plumbob?)

and straightened up that grossly ugly painting.

YOU ARE THE FIRST TO KNOW

ADORABLE JAMES IN NOW A MOVIE STAR,

TONIGHT ON 60 MINUTES HE’S ONE OF THE STARS IN A NEW GOVERNMENT AD FOR CLIMATE SAFE.

IT’S ON DURING 60 MINUTES

HE’S WEARING A BLUE TSHIRT AND BOXING GLOVES.

I’LL POST A CLIP OF IT TOMORROW.

Love

Day 12 and I get a fashion Upgrade

New xrays yesterday

oopsy,

Dr says we think there are a few more problems we need to deal with….

 

You can have surgery or a back brace?

Asked the surgeon does he occasionally sneeze?

Well yes sometimes,

OK, I’ll go for the brace

(don’t want you sneezing while you’ve got a scalpel close to my spine)

So the Brace arrived with a charming young man

this afternoon.

Here’s the packet

(again)

 

Goody, look how great I'm going to look in my new brace.

And obviously, I’ll be running along the beach tomorrow.

 

Do I look just like those charming folk on the packet?

Somehow, the reality did not match the packaging.

 

God, do I need to get to the hairdresser, my mop looks nothing like the dos on the brace packet.

Much more exciting news, look what arrived from the big Brissie!

Annie (but you know her as ANNE-MARIE) AND I ARE TWIN DOGGYPHILES.

So Annie sent me this book to cheer me up.

How cool is the ribbon, and the bookmark(we have 4 birds as well)

Thank you so much Annie, I love my gift heaps and heaps,  and am having fun already leafing through it.

Then there’s my friend G

Vet to the Stars (you know I’m referencing FF here).

Look what she arrived with yesterday

 

 

He's a hospital rat

He’s got rat teeth too

 

Ratty pearly whites

And G aptly named him

 

Anti Yasi Rat

And there are flowers galore here,

they are all gorgeous,

but the nurse caught me hopping araound the room photographing the flowers from attractive angles.

Turns out that’s another thing on the list of

hospital no-nos

(well getting caught doing it is a no-no).

 

Here's a dodgy photo of half of them, before the camera was confiscated by Nurse No No.

So, it’s bed time for those of us in the back brace brigade.

Sleeping in this thing is going to be ……………..

interesting.

If there is a post from me at 2am in the morning

you’ll know how successful the sleep is, or isn’t.

Love

and thanks for all the wonderful notes and good wishes.

Jurlique Giveaway – it got interrupted by the Grand Descent.

(EDITED TO ADD

This “competition” is really to amuse myself,

the sillier your answers

the more fun I have.

Remember, the hospital room still looks the same

DREARY!!!)

 

A quick post to remind you that on D BACK Day

Saturday 5th February 2011

The day of the BROKEN BACK

(feeling sorry for me yet?)

I was bored with Cyclone Cleanup

and found these photos

 

What shop window was this in? Clue: London

and these

 

Which Street did I illegally take photos of these shoes? London as well.

So,

Competition is back on.

If you read the comments section on the 5th and 6th (I think)

only one answer is correct.

Not telling you if it’s the ring or the shoes though.

Guess away in the comments section

and I have a Jurlique Pack (suited to your skin type)

for the correct answers.

1 for each.

 

If lots of people guess the correct shop/street

there’s a giveaway in a draw, for all those who did guess the correct answers.

Jurlique2+

The wonderful J (our General Manager) is going to have to sweet talk the Julique rep into contributing to this – tee hee.

But, you know, I have a BROKEN BACK, and so I can do no wrong.

Triple Tee Hee.

Love

So, amazingly, I’m still looking at this …..

No-one who works in this hospital is reading my blog.

(Well, no way I’m telling them about it either)

I’m STILL looking at this!

This little gem is still staring at me.

But NOW,

it has a new friend to keep it company

My New Racing Car

I get to do laps round the ward with this.

In a nighty (Mr iT was not been doing my washing, so I’m scraping the barrel for PJ’s today)

plus

compression anti dvt stockings

naturally opaque white,

and striped socks.

Don’t think I’ll be posting photos of that get up.

Hmmmm

think I’ll continue with Linda in Chile’s great road trip.

Think she’s just got another 43 hours in the car with Mr LiC and the girls till she gets to the good stuff.

Linda – here’s some more of Patagoniia.

Linda - this is a Patagonian Flower

Your mission is to name this flower.

This is an EXTREMELY rare Patagonian bird.

Mr Linda in Chile, your mission is to both name this bird and take a photo of another one so I know that they are not yet extinct.

A task for the girls

Gorgeous Girls Linda in Chile

1(a)What is this animal?

1(b) Is it aggressive

Clue – I did not use a zoom lens for this photo.

All the bins in Puerto Natale look like this - sort of.

Family Linda in Chile

send more bin photos.

El Calafate Sunset, gorgeous or what?

This is just for everyone to admire.

Patagonia is just wonderful.

Love

PS  I have had two days of the horrors.

Writing the blog really cheers me up, so thank you for reading.
