December 30, 2014

Late post today, still in post surgery waiting for a bed. Went for a nasty ride yesterday fractured my left femur. Thanks for all the supportive calls and E Mails. Surgery went well. Lucky to have so much support from the medical community!!!:)

    First light Monday morning.

   A beautiful day in the Coast Mountains.

    Snow making conditions were perfect.

   This is my view back up hill after the avalanche. Spiral comminuted femur fx sucks.

                                                    Got some steel in me.
