Re: poultry worms

Re: SOS! What's wrong with Violet?

Thanks Marigold, yes, I'm hopping around a bit now, still pretty useless walking wise; it really was a dreadful break, both tib and fib, and very thin fine and elderly flesh on the shin, which was the longterm problem possibly leading to a skin graft instead a 6" - 8" vertical line of stitches like ...
