One of the hardest things about having a broken hip for me has been the inability to get out and walk. Walking has been for so long a great way for me to slow down enough to smell the roses and take a breath.
Its also a great chance to pick up my camera and see the world in a different way. That's what I got the chance to do last weekend, not walk, but shot.
I truly look forward to the day I can walk about with my camera again.

However, I cant help but be impressed with the repair work. They rebuilt the socket and pinned it altogether making what is hopefully going to be a strong reliable hip. Sure they tell me I'll need a replacement in about ten years time, but for now, I think this should do.

So a little over three weeks ago I finish work and set of to collage without a care in the world. Within a couple of hours im in a hospital bed with a smashed hip and collarbone. It really has underlined to me how quickly things can change. I spent 8 days pined to a bed before I was operated on and my hip was pinned back together. A further two weeks in hospital before I could come home. Currently I'm stuck in a wheel chair with many months of rehab ahead before I can walk again..
Of course I know it could have been a lot worse, of course I'm great full to be alive and understand with work I will continue to get better. But honestly, what a bastard. Everything has changed in a split second and I really don't know what's going to happen next. Guess I never really did.
