took a taxi to the local hospital in the valley
for a CT scan
returned with confirmation that i have fractured my tibial plateau (a flat bit in my knee)
going to be on crutches, wearing a leg brace, giving myself daily injections of anti-blood clotting drugs for a while.
when i get back from the states next week, i'll need an MRI and possibly keyhole surgery on my knee
not the best way to end a wonderful, happy, ski holiday
people look on with pity as i hobble around, jealous of their able-bodied ability to go off and slide down mountains
my crutches slipped on melted ice in the lift to dinner and i screamed out expletives in pain.
i must have been in shock when i skied down after the accident: it all seems a little more painful now
but i have a doctors note saying i'm fit to drive and i'm looking forward to my shoot next week.
could have been a whole lot worse.
i'm bored but i feel very lucky.
and i have THE fittest nurse looking after me 24/7...i must get her the outfit
