That's me out of action for a while!
Volunteer Beaver Ranger Mike MacIntyre and I were investigating some new tree felling activity on Sunday when I stepped on a slippery branch, that was cunningly hidden under some moss. Down I went to the tune of a sharp crack from my ankle.
Unfortunately we were on the opposite side of the Loch from the vehicle so I had to get myself back down through the forest on my bum, scramble into the canoe, paddle back to shore and then use the paddles as crutches back to the car! Luckily Mike could to drive me.
At the hospital they patched me up for the night and sent me home since they don't DO x-rays on a Sunday! As it turns out, the ankle doesn't seem to be broken but was almost dislocated and has severe tissue damage. It would be better if it were broken since breaks apparently take less time to mend!
It feels a bit odd sitting here issuing directions to the team of beaver trackers who are out in the field this week. Maybe I could get used to it! Though I doubt it :o(
I'm bored already :o(
