This was a great trip…….met many people from all walks of life , different countries and of various ages. The interaction with all was positive and in the end a humbling experience.
Scenery was spectacular…….22 hours of day light difficult to get accustom to and wild life almost as abundant as if one was at the Zoo.
Now on my mis adventure……..went to family Dr on tuesday for final twin rex vacination and follow up to Golden Hospital report. Dr Gair ordered new Xrays and on Wed at 9am they were taken and I was detained pending the Surgeon, Dr Gupta, talking with Gair….back to the hospital Wednesday afternoon….I am now considered Ambulatory …..must be good because no waiting in Emerg….bumped to head of line…LOL….after some discussions with Gupta, I learn that I have 3 fractures possibly 6 and a partial collapsed right lung….no big deal but they are concerned about the 15 to 20 % of air outside of the lung wall…….it is decided that because the accident was more than a week ago that they would let me go home and I was to be back at 9am for more x rays and a decision on inserting a tube…YUK…would be made.
Ok up early, packed an overnight bag just in case…..X rays taken….Dr Gupta notes no change which I think is a good thing….says he is sending me home with 1 restriction…..no flying for 8 weeks….I took that literally. Should I experience extreme pain or shortness of breath call him……gave me his card…..allow 6 weeks for ribs and I should be good for the CA & South America trek on or about Sept 2nd…….this will be the start of a new blog.
Thank you for following along……..
