A Good Home


After a second trip to another emergency room (as suggested by a kind doctor who made a house visit to see me),  it was discovered that my original diagnosis was inaccurate. I didn’t just break my ankle, I’ve broken 3 bones in my left leg. To make matters worse, the original hospital sent me home with the wrong cast. The cast they gave me did not provide the appropriate support, it was only causing me more pain.

I’d like to thank the kind folks at Bowmanville Hospital emergency room. They made it a priority to make me feel comfortable and they gave me the right cast. I’m hopeful that the pain will begin to subside.

Thank you all for all your love and support. I’m so grateful.

  1. Oh Cynthia, I’m so sorry to hear about your leg – wow, three breaks? Also sorry about the PTSD episode that preceded your injury. Glad you have all the family support and that you’re in a good hospital. Take care, and hope you heal as fast as possible. Will be thinking of you! 💖💕

  2. Oh my gosh! I’m so sorry. You probably remember what I wrote about my son’s knee he broke into six pieces. I’m imagining what you’re experiencing. I can’t imagine.

  3. You are always in our thoughts and prayers, Cynthia. I am sorry to hear of the multiple breaks, but I am glad you are receiving wonderful care in a new hospital now.

  4. So even worse news! I am so pleased you are in a good hospital and you are being well cared for there. It will give Hamlyn and the rest of the family time to get over their shock. Prayers for you and yours form me xxxx

  5. Oh my giddy aunt, Cynthia. I know you don’t like to do things by halves, but this is going a bit too far. Love and hugs. You may be a woman down, but we are all here to lift you up. And your dear family, too.

  6. Oh my goodness, how frustrating. Glad to hear you found your way into the great hands at Bowmanville ER. May the pain subside and be cast away with today’s grey skies. Take care Cynthia.

  7. Oh my goodness, I am so sorry it’s worse, but I hope you heal fast.. and use what ever words you need to get through it!! Hopefully the pain will subside now… there is something to be said about seconds of anything, even a diagnosis. Take good care of yourself.

  8. Well, at least you are now being diagnosed and treated properly. Ay yi yi. Take heart and please feel better. Know that many loving and healing thoughts are being sent your way. 👩‍⚕️

  9. My Dear Cynthia
    This is your BEAUTIFUL UNCLE EDDIE from LONDON, [ I have been to “Specsavers”] THE GLASS`S PEOPLE, and they are never WRONG.. I am sorry for your “Disruption in your daily living” the continuation of “SEVERE PAIN” I know you were always a “PAIN IN THE NECK” BUT NOW IT SEEMS IT HAS GONE TO YOUR HEAD, SHOULDERS, BACK, BELLY, BATTY, LEGS, AND NOW YOUR FEET, WELL FOOT. You are So
    Lucky you are in the good ole CANADA, Because if you were here in good ole ENGLAND, Thy would have had you PLASTERED, not only your foot, but also your HEAD, SHOULDERS. { SEE ABOVE } BUT not your Toes, so you can put on any colour VARNISH you like.
    I went to my Doctor today and asked him for some feet to sent to you, it cost me a small fortune, actually, Cynthia, it cost me a large “pension” fortune.
    The feet arrived today, and I was overjoyed, I was just about to send them, to you to see which one would “LIKE”, “to save more pain” then I thought to measure them, and guess what my dear, GOOD THING I CHECKED THEM, ONE WAS NOT A FOOT, IT WAS 11″. THE NEXT ONE WAS 8.5″ AND THE OTHER WAS OVER A FOOT, SO, I think you should keep what you have at the Moment, and if anything arrives, [your wise], I will contact.

  10. Dearest Cynthia and Hamlin thinking of you. Sending you love. Thanks for letting us all know what is happening to you. Wish I could pop in just for a short while.

  11. Ravie que le personnel médical et paramédical aient été un soutien pour toi(c’est mon combat en tant qu’infirmière, aider les personnes hospitalisées à se sentir le mieux possible) Je pense à toi 😉

  13. Dear Cynthia, I am so sorry to read your post, as well as painful this must be very frustrating and challenging for you and Hamlyn. I feel for you both. Sending positive vibes and a virtual hug, although, I wish it could be a real hug, you are in my thoughts and prayers. Best wishes, Julie. X

  14. That’s discouraging that the first diagnosis was so far off and the treatment all wrong. Thank goodness you followed up and went to another hospital. I hope you’re feeling a little better.

  15. Oh my, Cynthia. I, like others, came to catch up on your posts and found you hurt (but hopefully healing). Please take care of yourself as well as you can, body and spirit, and allow everyone else to take good care of you for just that little bit longer than you think you should. Thinking of you, and of Hamlin, and your loving family, and wishing you all well.
