Yeah I've been gone for a while. I was out camping and I climbed up a little hill to take a leak, this was after my friends went to sleep, I was on my way back to my tent however I went a different way than what I came and did not notice there was a mini cliff on one side of the mountain. After I fell about 8 feet I landed on my right leg which at the time was overextended. This was no good. I was about 100 feet from my friends however they we were tented up on the edge of the river (rapids) and they could not hear me. At this point I tried to get up and walk, I fell down this time. I got up again and remember my leg swinging out to the side and the knee cap poking thru my skin. I lost concisouness at this point. from some time between 12pm or so on Friday Night and 7:45 in the morning I dragged myself about 25 feet.
At around 7:45am someone in a Jeep found me as I guess I was close to a 4x4 trail. thre cops were called and I was carried to the ambulance. I was hypothrermic as I had been out in the below freezing tempertures with just a t-shirt for 7 hours. My blood pressure was 235 over 130. Pulse was probably up there too. I was in shock I guess. Either way they were saying I should have had a stroke or died.
We got to the hospital and they managed to get my leg back to where it should be. The problem is its my right leg. I managed to destroy my PCL, ACL, MCL and LCL. I also lost all the nerves in my leg in the process. I go in for surgery soon, the swelling will have to stop. They say I still have a slight chance of walking again if the surgeries go ok. I get to go on vacation out of state since the doctor I was working with has only seen this type of injury twice before.
If this did not happen my insurance company could have purchased 2 GXPs or 10 nice SSEis. 3 days worth of work at the hospital. Yeah I guess Intensive care and MRIs and stuff are expensive.
and I know y'all want to see pics.
