This week's theme is Health (Well-being, Illness, Disease, Etc).

Here's mine from The Blood Detective by Dan Waddell:

He was in a wheelchair pushed by Drinkwater. Nigel had thought he was still in hospital....He was surprised to see him looking so well. The breaks had all been clean, apart from the fracture of his right tibia and fibula. They'd inserted a series of screws and a metal plate. The operation was deemed a success, though Foster would not be doing the 100 metres any time soon, and he would be left with some pain and aggravation.
