It's all so stupid really, she fell getting out of bed causing bruising to her head and lower leg. We didn't think much about it until a few hours later when her leg ballooned out. Then suddenly the leg burst open releasing a haematoma and an awful lot of blood. I called 999 and a paramedic came out to see her. He called for an ambulance which immediately took her to Redditch A&E where, a few hours later and unable to stem the blood flow, they conferred with the big new Hospital in Birmingham and transferred her at maximum speed to the Queen Elizabeth plastic surgery unit.
She is still awaiting surgery some 36 hours after the accident. The split in her leg measures 25cm by 5 cm wide, which is why she has been admitted to this unit as they have the expertise and facilities to cope. She must be climbing the wall.
Can you let us have an update when you can please!
