It’s almost six weeks since my accident and I am rather bored. The damage detected so far is a right arm and shoulder broken in five places. Torn rotator cuff and some other muscles ripped from my shoulder. My left wrist broken in three places and still in plaster and both my knees with damaged ligaments.
I have to go back to see the medics on Thursday and they have to decide on what surgery to perform when.
The current forecast is for a six month rehabilitation period and the likelihood that I will have a stiff left wrist and limited movement in my right arm for the rest of my life.
Not really an optimal outcome but as long as I can still walk I am quite OK with it.

  1. Hoi Eric,

    Sterkte met het revalideren. Wij hebben het erg naar ons zin gehad in Nepal (en Bhutan), maar vonden het erg jammer dat je er niet was.

    In maart ben je waarschijnlijk wel gewoon in NZ. We komen graag even bij je langs!

    Groetjes, Edwin en fam
