On today's walk Joan [Taylor] fell when starting to cross a muddy field above Bradwell. She hurt her shoulder. We all went with her down to the road. She and John caught the bus to Sheffield and went straight to Royal Hallamshire Hospital. Joan has broken a bone in her upper arm, just below the socket. Joan and John were home by mid afternoon. Joan's arm is in a sling. She has to go to the fracture clinic at Northern General next Wednesday.
