I bet that crazy b'stard is driving the nurses nuts already with his sense of humour, I'm sure they'll push for him to be flown back home as soon as possible even if he doesn't have medical insurance.
Get well soon Skippy.

Talking Back in UK

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"
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.

There is nothing impossible to those who will try!

I don't think I know you, but I do have a message for you. I smashed T5 and T6 in a bike crash, and landing on my head cracked the orthotic peg on C2. So like you, I was millimeters from disaster. Five years on, I back in rude health and still a poor shot!

So get around as much as you can and set a target to achieve every day. Good luck.
