Hi everyone thanks for all the get well messages.
Obviously I'm gutted to be missing the GP Season. Looks like I'm out of commission for 3 to 4 months.
I'm walking & there will be no lasting damage. I came within millimeters of being crippled, a little more speed and that would be that, so mega lucky.
The insurance company have been great "Fogg Insurance" http://www.fogginsure.co.uk/
I got home at 10pm last night after 2 ambulance rides & a flight (1st class) with a doctor.
So final damage toll is 4 fractured vertebra (C7, T3, T4, T5) , 9 fractured ribs & a punctured lung, not bad! Mmmmmm.
The worst of it is it wasn't a tale of daring-do, I was skiing off-piste in about knee deep powder snow on a fairly flat (really flat) pitch and hit a rock under the snow, somersaulted forward landed on the back of my head with the rest of my body coming down on me, craaak!! Made a hell of a noise and the pain was somewhat intense & couldn't breath.
So again thanks for all the messages, hope to see you all soon, maybe I'll be able to catch the end of the season.
