Message from the "Not-wife".
Regular visitors to the Poor Mouth may have noticed a lack of activity just lately. This is because poor old Jams has been in hospital having an operation to repair his quadriceps muscle. He's likely to be home in a few days so any messages of support and commiseration will no doubt be gratefully received by him if not downright lapped up. He's going to be stuck at home for a couple of months so anything that helps keep him amused will be most welcome.

Please pass on my best wishes to Jams, and I hope to see him back online soon! Quadriceps sounds like a kind of dinosaur...

Gert said...

Oh, do pass on my best wishes to him. And hope to see him when he stops lounging around like an idle person

Silent Hunter said...

Hope he recovers soon. I enjoy reading this blog.

I suppose he's aware of Weebl and Bob.

Liz said...

get well soon, jams! I wondered at your lack of appearance.

Plenty of time to be blogging then ...

Claudia said...

Away too for the next 6-8 weeks. Hope, by the time I'm back, jams is running up and down, here and there, without pain. Best wishes to both of you.

Kay Dennison said...

Poor Jams. I hope everything goes well and you're back up and about soon.

beakerkin said...

Feel better Jams and watch out for Ted. He is probably planning some great evil plot while you are recuperating.

Bryan said...

That is a major bummer, as we said in my youth on this side of the pond.

Lounging is about all you can do with quad problems [been there and done that while playing football].

Probably a full leg cast that will take a while to get used to, and then rehab when they remove it.

Fortunately they now have wireless controls so you can command the world from the couch... well, at least the TV and computer, if not the world.

Get well soon, Jams!!!

girasoli said...

Sean Jeating said...

Phew! Thought, I had left my good wishes as third after D.E. and Gert.

Thus, "again": Get well soon!
In case they would not allow you a meeting with your 'only man', today: I shall have one on your behalf. :)

Aww thanks for all your kind words!

SnoopyTheGoon said...

Quadriceps muscle? I bet, Jams, that it's some shady deal with Albanian whiskey smugglers that got wrong ;-)

Sorry to hear about it and get better soon.

jams o donnell said...

I wish Snoopy... it was just me missing my footing on the steps of a tube station!
