    Ok firstly i got a full leg cast in plaster of paris which weighed a ton. I had that for about a week. When i cam back to the UK i got the full leg cast removed and got a glass-fibre (i think that's what it's called) from below my knee. I think that was on for about 4 weeks or so. It took between 1-2 weeks for the muscle to build up back to normal and it was ok. I could run on it after about a week of the removal of the cast but i was advised against it for about a month after. From what i recall.

    hmm..

    i sliced my eyebrow open when i run into the bannister in the hall! because of my brother

    i've put my two front teeth through my tongue after getting a bit too excited when bugs bunny was starting! because of my brother

    almost bust my nose a couple of times - my brother's fault

    done my coxix (sp?) in a couple of times too - not because of my brother but because of my lack of balance! weeeeeeeeeeeeee!

    i haven't broken a bone yet though - perhaps my brother will do that to me one day to top off his list!

    Basketball Nationals, I was hot favourite to make Australia, but NO, bloody Kayla Beexly...She must die... Um recovery took around a year, considering I also got glandular fever at the same time, I had a brace on for a little while but becuase the breaks didnt shatter I could walk about really slowly, just couldnt go to school for a while. Ive had to give up on professional becuase something happend when I had glandular fever as well and I wasnt as energetic for a long long time, but im ok now though!!!

    Point guard . It was just a training session, but I didn't realise I'd broken it at first. Then I just played through the pain. Then I collapsed from pain.
