    Mañana, Hazel

    Hi Hazel

    I've been running around in headless chicken mode all day, trying to get everything packed. Have your ever tried to get a woggle into an already full holdall. Who would think that something so simple would put up such a fight. After all of this I have just sat down for a few minutes on TP. The sun and red wine should all happen mañana, if it all goes to plan.

    Take care now

    Love from

    Woggle

    Hazel

    It is the "long foam sausage thingy" which is used to help teach people swim. Not too sure that my explanation has really helped:eek: but my daughter uses one which means that she can doggie paddle without arm bands.

    I've not started on the red wine yet, honest.:D

    Love from

    John's a bit better today, thanks Deborah. He's not jerking as much, though still very sleepy. His left hand is still swollen, though it's gone down a bit. I tried to get his ring off, but no joy. The staff are keeping an eye on it, in case it has to be cut off (the ring, not the finger:eek:).

    I'm OK, just flat at the moment. Last week brought me down to earth with a bump!:(

    Love,

    Bill had to have his wedding ring cut off a couple of years ago when he fell. Since then we had it repaired at a ringmakers shop in Glasgow and it looks as good as new. Izzy x

    Yes, they've tried that, Sylvis, but his knuckle is very swollen.

    Unless it gets worse, they're going to leave it over the weekend. I must confess I'd be happier if it was off.

    If you would be happier if the ring were off, then get it done as soon as possible. Then you can have it repaired as Izzy suggested. You could put it around John's neck on a chain or wear it yourself on a chain.

    Mum had this problem- we wrapped cotton around her finger to compress it and then soap over to get it off. Start at finger tip up to knuckle. hope this helps?

    The ring is off!:)

    I had to wait till today, because the handyman doesn't work weekends.

    He had an awful job sawing it off, because the finger was so swollen. Apparently they have something in A&E, sort of hot wire that cuts through it. Pity I didn't get it done when we were there last week.

    I'm going to get it repaired and put it on a chain round John's neck -- not that he would ever have worn a chain, but I'd like him to wear it.

    He's still very sleepy, but otherwise OK. He was amazing while the ring was being sawn off -- but that's John!:)
