    I was trying to avoid accidents prior to our holiday but to no avail. The evening before departure I tripped and dislocated 2 fingers. Not wanting to spend several hours in A&E on a Saturday night I persuaded my wife to pull my fingers back into joint. My dominant hand was not great to start with but now it is useless. I shouldn’t really complain because there are others much worse than me and at least we made it to Egypt.
    My walker is doing circles hi the sand when I need to brake since I have no grip in my left hand. Does this remind you of a lyric from a song.

    Reserved our seats for the Wales/England game at the sports bar. One advantage of disability.

    Best wishes to all.

      Oh Barry - that sounds painful! I hope the pain has subsided and you are enjoying your holiday.

      It sounds like you will be watching the rugby in style!, probably with some Egyptian style bar snacks - and a refreshing drink or two I'm looking forward to watching the Wales v England match too. I will be sipping English breakfast tea and tucking into a slice or two of Welsh 'Bara Brith'.

      Love and best wishes to you and your family,

          Sounds great fun, Barry and your wife is a hero,

          Hope that they soon return to normal. Keep safe out there.
          Which fingers and how did you do it.

          Love Terry

            Ooo Barry That's painful and I hope it has not stopped you enjoying your sunshine break with your family.

            I agree with Terry that your wife is a hero. Our son once dislocated his thumb dropping a catch in a cricket match. He asked my husband to put it back in so he could carry on and I had to run away ( before the days of MND ) I am such a coward!

            Hope you're feeling better and have a lovely week.
            Love Debbie x

              Thanks for the good wishes.

              My wife has vowed never to do that again even after I complained that my middle finger is not straight. I may have to wait until we get home next week.

              The best recipe for spasticity is sunshine and I’m loving it. I hope everyone in this forum family is as well as they can be.

              Love and best wishes to all.

                    A good result for England so far!

                    Glad to see you're enjoying the Egyptian hospitality Barry! Great photos ...you have a beautiful family! ..... but where's Humphrey?

                    Hope you and your family enjoy watching the second half.

                    Love

                      Oh no, Barry - not the final result we had hoped for! I think this calls for more liquid refreshment, so that we can console ourselves! I hope you and your family enjoy the rest of the evening, and the rest of your holiday.

                          Consoled our selves with a wonderful meal at our favourite Italian restaurant. Sad today because we are traveling home this afternoon but we can recommend the Sheraton for disability facilities.

                            Hi Barry,

                            Its great that you have enjoyed your holiday - I expect you have some wonderful photos and very special memories to include in your book.

                            Take care and have a safe journey home. Perhaps use a wheelchair at the airport, if your legs are feeling a bit tired.

                              Good luck Ireland, in their match against Italy this afternoon.

                              I'm popping out to my local park to feed the ducks and catch some sun, but will be back home for afternoon tea, in time for the start of the match - TV coverage starts on ITV at 2.15pm.

                              I hope everyone is having a lovely day,
