I am shocked he was cut to the bone from hitting the edge of a tile dam. Was the tile extra sharp?

The top of the leg bone has very little flesh on it. Maybe the shower entrance ledge was rough, but the wound was long, deep and raggedy. Surgeon said it was to the bone. The was even divot on the bone. Hard fall. But now we are going out the dinner with our son and his family. All's well that ends well.

While on a trip to London, I took a very bad fall and dislocated my shoulder was well as broke it and broke my elbow and I was taken to a hospital (can't remember the name now) and my care was excellent. I had to have surgery on the shoulder and elbow and could have had them in London but needed time for the swelling to go down some, so after discussion with the Doctors at the hospital, and my personal Dr. in the states, they all agreed I could fly home (after having a cast put on elbow and slings on both arms. The dislocation was put back into place while I was at the hospital. I elected to stay in our hotel for two nights before flying home and the Doctor from the hospital called me several times before I flew home to make sure I was okay. I was very impressed with the care and kindness.

Actually, London water is very hard. Kettles get furred up.
I too find some foreign showers slippery. We had grab rails installed years ago when we had a new bathroom installed. "We will probably need them when we get older". Ho hum

London water is very hard, but top end hotels then instal softeners to provide a more pleasant water to their guests and to get people to drink tea and coffee that normally would be almost "scum" surfaced due to the hardness, so ending up with super-soft water. Hence super-slippy.
