Jenny has just phoned – She’s in a bad way. She has broken two bones in her leg/legs. She is just about to go into surgery and is pumped up on Morphine.
We are working on getting her phone to work in Chile as she crossed over the boarder yesterday. I will keep you all informed of progress.

Hope you have a speedy recovery Jenny, and that Piglet is OK to! Best of luck and get well soon!

Thanks, Katie_em.
That's certainly not the news hoped for but I appreciate the update.
Nothing but good thoughts headed South!

I'm Julie. Yes we spoke on the phone. I have tried to get hold of the Nurse but no luck.

Jennys phone won't work because she needs to be on the 1900MHz band - thats a Tri Band phone in roman catholic.

If she calls you again can you tell her that its her Phone that won't work - she needs another phone.

I can not get hold of her again - We have sent messages to the hostpital in the hope we can get to talk to her.

Any need for us to chip in for a new phone? I'll gladly donate a few pesos, in fact I'll be really happy to be able to help in some small way..

Surely the phone she bought is quad band?

Is it not just that she needs to enable roaming?

Just a thought!


Nick.

Nice to talk to you, sorry it was under these conditions! I believe that if Jenny is able to call the Chile number that she used before, I will be able to connect a live call worldwide for her, as long as I am at the computer and know to pick up the call rather than leave it to voicemail. Depending on what city she is in, I may be able to establish an even more local number so that she can dial it from her hospital room phone (you can PM me that info if you have it).

If you speak to Jen, please let her know about those options.

Thanks, and good luck JMo!
