|Powder Day on Outrider run|
|Bob skiing the bumps in Sunna|
The fluid had dispersed by morning and the surgeon decided a CT scan was not necessary, and only an ultrasound was needed. A phone call personally from Bob to drive to Cranbrook as he no longer needed a return trip by ambulance and no further treatment was necessary.
We both thank God that it was only his ribs and lung. A quick recovery is in progress. (I think Bob is "The Fountain of Youth")
Today, we returned to Invermere District Hospital for a follow up X ray to monitor his lung. Dr. Francois Louw did not feel an X ray was needed as he had healed so quickly, and only an ultra sound was done. The neumothorax still exists, but has already began to heal. Dr. Louw feels he will be back to normal in 4 weeks.
Four weeks is not a long time considering he already has 40 ski days behind him and still possible for an additional 72!!!! He will be ready for action by the time our daughter Tammy arrives on February 20.

Tomorrow, it will be day 51 for me. Yes, I will see 100+ ski days!
Thursday was Australia Day @ Panorama.
Australia Day, or Foundation Day, as it was then known was described in the stirring last stanza:
|Austalia Day @ the Sunbird Chair|
That gave these blessings to our lot
Then let us share the social rites
Join hands, all malice be forgot!
This little star, once marked by noneNow shines a bright - a BLAZING SUN!
