    Urgh.

    Got a blister on my right big toe at relentless.
    Saw doc, he said just to dress it.
    Saw doc a week later, toenail removed, strong antibiotics prescribed.
    Another week on and Just seen doc again. Infection is in bone. Week in hospital with my feet up for me and IV antibiotics to reduce (hopefully eliminate) the risk of me loosing part or all of said toe.

    Hospital/top docs are in York. I live in Leeds, friends and family are in huddersfield or Harrogate.

    So y’all had best come up with some funny shit for me to read, else I’m going to die of boredom, rather than any medical related malady…

    Cripes! Sorry to hear that, hope you make make a good recovery and all that.

    I can amuse people in person but in writing it all comes out a bit wrong and I end up putting my foot in it… see.

    I’m sure perchy will be along soon to take the piss more effectively.

    Remember to toe the line with the hospital staff. I would take advantage of having a full compliment of toes by playing “This little piggy went to market” just in case you lose one of the pigs. 🙂
    Get well soon, i shall keep Leeds tidy for you upon your return.

    Aww, I’ve got an ace one to show as well…

    Yeah, subscribed up to my eyes for various tv, film and music services. Waiting back from HR if they’ll ‘let’ me log on and work, plus got a stack of magazines to get through… I am partial to a nap too, which I imagine will help….

    Pics please.
    🙂

    I’m looking after someone who’s laid up after an op, hence making a nuisance of myself on here.
    Try the tune association thread, much more fun than all that EU nastiness.

    Hope all ok with the toe.

    Start by learning the difference between lose and loose.

    Actually no, start by posting a picture, then sort your grammar deficiencies. Enrich our lives before your own.

    Sorry jekkyl, the mob has spoken. I’ll only put a link up though, so you don’t have to click it…

    Sorry...

    I didn’t have to click that link – but I did

    It then took a while to load in which time I could have clicked the back button – but I didn’t

    I didn’t have to zoom in on the distance shot – but I did

    You know that saying about only regretting the things you did, not the things you didn’t do……

    And when you’re done with the EU thread you can treat yourself to the Jeremy Corbyn, Donald Trump & TM threads.
    You could start a thread on the subject of…..hospital food; complete with pictures and daily menus.

    I’m ashamed to say I’m already up to date with the trump thread….anyone got any plans to lease a car in the near future?

    Yeah, hospital food blog, plus confirmation on the rules on takeaways

    Recommendations for York’s finest takeaway purveyors? that deliver, obvs. And lamb, and chicken.
