Quick Update

Just a quick update to say that I took Graham to the doctor's this morning and he was given a thorough checking over - relieved to say no cracked ribs, "just" severe bruising all down that side over his ribs, which is causing a lot of the pain, so has been given some anti-inflammatories (I think that's right!) to help with this.  Apart from that, nothing more serious lurking that we hadn't spotted.  He also had a call from the victim support people today to check how he is.  We won't know what happened at court this morning (only the initial appearance) for a few days unless Graham rings them up later on to find out about it.  He's still shaky but at least today he's managed to walk down to the shop again and back - he suddenly decided that he need to do that now, the longer he left it the more likely he'd be to not want to go out again.  So that was a good sign. 


  1. It's good news that nothing is broken Heather and even better that Graham has been out. Thinking of you both. Love S xx

  2. Great news that Graham felt like going out today, so important that this terrible assault does not take over his life, and we all know that can happen, pity that the yobs sentence can't be Life Without Parole, with a bit of luck they will go to prison and get a taste of what it's like to be on the receiving end of a violent assault, good news also from the GP, give Graham my best wishes, take care

  3. Well done Graham. It's all going to get better now that first trip out has been taken. Take it easy.
    Luv Joanne xx
    X Mia - hug for Graham

  4. Hi Heather
    What a relief for you both knowing Graham has had a thorough check-up today. Hoping the bruising eases soon & Victim support were able to offer you both some comfort.
    Sending you both lots of gentle cyber hugs.
    Best wishes, love Gez.xx

  5. So glad the check up went well and that Graham managed to take that long first walk!! I know how daunting that can be.
