    Missing you already Alex. Don't worry you're not missing much - they still haven't figured out this ME business...maybe next week...

    Wishing you a speedy recovery Alex!

    (wish you could trade in some of the feeding time for some laptop quality time? ;-)

    Alex, I just saw this thread. Don't you know that the saying "break a leg" for good luck is for actors and not we patients?;)

    Here's hoping for a speedy recovery. Take it easy. Something like this can take a long time to heal.

    We can provide internet entertainment. Jokes, funny stories, pictures or videos. Just ask and you shall receive.

    Can someone print out the replies on this thread so Alex can see them?

    Thanks to Heaps and Traskin for keeping us updated.

    Get well soon, Alex. Otherwise they will figure out ME without you, and you won't get any of the credit!

    Broken Leg Alex?

    Hope you weren't sneaking in some graded exercise behind our backs:)

    Hope you're soon back on your feet again (sic).

    In the meantime - here's a little something to keep you amused :

    Just spent a couple of hours with Alex, spirits are high and besides his leg he is the best i have seen him and he says he feels good. Maybe that anaesthetic sleep he had has done wonders.
    He says hi to everyone and appreciates this thread which i printed out for him to read, plus printed the lipkin pathogen article for abit of light entertainment.

    In the next few days??? they look like moving Alex to St vincent hospital in brisbane for his rehab, which could be a good thing as its a private hospital but paid for by the govt health system for Alex's stay, probably a lack of public hospital beds is the reason but hopefully means he has a few more comforts and better food. Although he says that where he is now they are looking after him well.

    At the moment he has a window bed looking out at a couple of nice big gum trees. Dam! i forgot to ask him which nurse does the sponge baths, lol.


    cheers!!!

    I sent Alex an email but I guess it will be a while before he checks those. FWIW:

    As for the other conversation:

    Hehe! Do not forgot to purposely include all war veterans in your "demographically representative" sample!
