Just read a FB post by Ruth...

"Now in hospital waiting to be seen for an operation on the grapefruit sized haematoma in my leg. That was not this evening's plan. :-("

 

Oops, this is not too good frown

 

big_hug To Ruth.

Oh no, that doesn't sound good.  Is that a result of the tumble off her bike she had on her birthday? 

Get well soon, Ruth, bless you big_hug

Oh Ruth, if I was closer, you'd have proper food every day. ok

Do they have a dietician in the place .......? Doesn't sound like it!!surprised

 

Get well soon, love, and only then write to the chief exec - after all, (s)he's paid enough.

(sorry to get a bit political!)
