Day 4 DISASTER !! Broken Bones etc

Up at 7 am and it was 3 below !!  Never known such cold whilst in Australia,when I awoke I thought I was in the North of England again !! Outside chairs and fields were actually covered in hoar frost ! my fingers were frozen and IF I were to stand in front of a fire my mothers famous warning from a lot of years ago were ringing in my mind ! “Geoffrey ! you will get chillblains standing in front of the fire ! ” A statement from those far flung days when warmth inside English houses was provided by COAL .Last packing away (slide on) included electronically lowering the roof,but, didnt happen because we forgot to take the TV down from its pedestal preventing the lowering of the roof !! SO? Annie decided to climb inside the Unit to lower the TV which she did.Getting out of the Slide On Annie stepped onto the top 3 runged ladder and slipped of (we suspect an iced rung) fell to the ground and broke her Left arm close to the shoulder joint! Being rendered helpless I managed to secure the Slide On and drove to Kilkivan with Annie in extreme pain hoping to find a Hospital.Arrgh NO Hospital,NO Doctors (who only visit twice monthly!) I then called for an Ambulance that duly arrived some 40 minutes later from Gympie some 5o kms away. Annie was treated,X-rayed and trussed up (at all times in extreme pain!) On the way home ( 130kms or so) we unbelievably discovered a Chemist in the middle of nowhere and obtained some prescribed drugs ( that didnt help at all!) Annie was in terrible pain all night and I took her to our local hospital then onto out local GP.At this stage food and liquids would not stay down and poor ole Annie was continually vomiting and was once again admitted to Hospital in Hervey Bay where she is currently (we suspect she may be transferred to Maryborough some 30 kms away) We are up to Thursday and I have now cancelled my Radio show to help Annie recover quickly.It is estimated it could take around 6 weeks to heal ( and that means a HUGE pile of washing awaiting Annie when she is better !) I am currently making my own meals..i.e   McDonalds,Hungry Jacks,Pizza Hut,Fish n Chips etc) On a serious note poor Annie is in extreme pain and on morphine injections to ease the pain and depending on the healing process goes,may affect our travelling around Oz come August
