All I can say is that i've been blown away by everyones support. There are too many people to mention on the top of my head but everytime I feel down during my recovery I can read all your blogs.
I'm not a man who likes being the centre of attention but it definatly sounds like I am now.
Just to let you know (for those of a nervous disposition might want to skip this)
I dislocated my ankle and factured my ankle in 3 places. my ankle is being held together by wires, screws and metal plates.
Dont worry about playing the Atomic all stars. The tackle was a 50:50 and was no-ones fault (except my own because I was playing so crap at the time). Plus they all followed my up to the hospital and made sure I was alright. I dont know how I would have coped for those 20 mins if they wern't there for me. If anyone owes anyone a pint its them.
I'd also like to thank Alex and anyone else who talked to my mum and dad. They both really apreciated it
I'm now home in Liverpool where I'll be staying for the next few weeks while I get used to my crutches.
I have to have my stiches removed in 2 weeks and a screw from my ankle in 6 weeks. I will definatly be up and about before christmas if everything goes OK.
I do want to get back to uni as soon as I can. But I also dont want to rush anything.
Thank you all again.
PS Always ask for Morphine and gas. Amazing stuff ;-)
