"Grandad's A Robot" said Gwen

On Monday we went back to Newport as Eric had an appointment with the elbow specialist on Tuesday. On Tuesday I dropped him off at the hospital and then took Ben for a walk around Tredegar Park. I took the ball and a thrower so he enjoyed our time there. Next I did the shopping while waiting for a phone call to tell me Eric was ready to be picked up at the hospital. 
Gwen said granddad's a robot!
He now has some sort of brace which allows limited movement of his elbow and next week it'll be adjusted to give a little more movement. They are hoping the bone pieces are small enough not to cause a problem as the specialist does not want to operate. He has to have a MRI scan but the earliest we can get is October 30th......eight weeks after his accident!
We're now back on the boat for a few days before travelling back to Newport for Eric's appointment on Tuesday. Clare's back operation is on Tuesday as well as long as it's not cancelled again and of course there needs to be a bed on the ward, so we may be on dry land for a while longer.
