Belle has had a bit of an accident. She slipped and fell on our drive in the snow, landing sideways hitting her head on to a low wall.
For those of you with a squeamish disposition please look away now.
Oops, sorry, too late - you looked didn't you?
When Belle tumbles she usually does in in style, but she dosn't often actually break anything. Sadly this one was exceptional. After three ambulance rides and two hospitals it was concluded that her eye is ok, but she has fractured her cheekbone (non medical description) in three places and probably needs an operation to fix it. So its back to hospital for a consult with the Max Fax boys.
Thanks for all of you who also frequent the pages of Facebook and who have offered kind works of sympathy and encouragement. Many of you have asked what you can do to help:
Facebook comments are good
Prayer is very good
Tomato soup, it appears, is even better!
So, we are well stocked with soup (smooth), orange juice (smooth), bread (white and so soft it melts in the mouth) and two tubs of vanilla ice cream (also smooth). I suspect you are getting the idea that she isn't keep on lumps right now.
The blog is as well stoked with material, as is our fire indoors, so I will keep posting through these frigid days. Hopefully, when the thaw arrives, Belle will be on the road to recovery and both Debdale and Chertsey will be back on the move.
