No 3 son, Chris, has broken a bone in his hand - a metacarpel. He did it playing cricket in an ambitious attempt to stop overthrows. Everyone on the pitch heard the break and that was the end of his contribution to the match - there were two balls left and his team won easily. Luckily for Chris, his team included at least two doctors and one of these is a orthopedic specialist in the hospital closest to where the match was being played. So, Chris was transported to hospital, rushed to the front of the A&E queue, X-rayed, plastered, given his next appointments and finally brought home by this consultant. What a hero. When the NHS works like this, we should thank our lucky stars.
Chris has now reached the stage where the novelty has worn off and the pain is significant. A few Ibruprofen will be devoured this week, methinks.
