    Thanks all for the best wishes folks it is muchly appreciated. Unfortunately Phil I can not Trainz as all my training stuff is on the home PC which I can not get to because I am stuck in bed in hospital and will be for weeks if not months,
    The plate on the femur seems to be going ok but I still can not put weight on it at all and the hips are just just going to heal naturally according to the doctors.
    The physio types are not happy with how my house is set up for this type of disability and I don't even think I could fit the wheel chair I have thru most of the doors.
    Wifey is helping a lot she wants to lock me in the garage in a pen so the dogs won't bother me lol. Just going to take sum time till I can back to my fav hobby is all.
    Cheers Mick.

    Really sorry to hear this Mick. Hope your recovery is quicker than expected, and as painless as possible. And hopefully you'll be back home, as quickly as possible, staying in hospital isn't fun.

    At least you have some internet access, hopefully you can find enough to keep you busy while you recover.

    Regards

    So sorry to hear this Mick.

    Hopefully you'll be up and around and Trainzing sooner than you think. Usually with hip replacements, the hospital has the patient up and about the next day. With your femur injury, this might be longer, but hopefully not weeks or not months.

    Have you thought about a lap top? The normal business ones will just about run TANE if you're very very selective hence Middleton for lap tops. Blender will run and I'm sure people can suggest a list of things they'd love to see.

    You have my sympathy, when we rode the bikes the dread was always a broken femur. Depending how bad it was it could mean up to two years in hospital.

    Well, best wishes to both of you for a quick recovery. I'm avoiding knee replacement surgery, so far

    Welcome back Mick. Best advice I can suggest is to follow rehab as best you can. A hip replacement takes around 18 months to fully recover to the point where you forget about it, but that is minor compared to your injuries.

    I found the hydro sessions really helpful so I hope you have a hydro pool in town.
