I haven't seen my dad for 7 years and I was/am really looking forward to his visit with his wife in January. I just heard this weekend, that June (my dad's wife) has broken her ankle, it sounded very bad, bones sticking out and foot facing the wrong way (sounds like one of the videos we were shown on my PT training course).
Anyhow the doctor has said no flying. Dad said he hasn't given up hope of coming, but I have already had a few tears. Trying to stay positive and not think too much about myself, after all June is in a lot of pain.
I am really dreading telling the kids, they will be gutted.
