I'm not even supposed to be here today!

Well here I am. At work and still injured :(

It looks like work is going to assist with additional medical opinions (including paying for it as well)

Damn thing is still sore (including the lower-half of the leg) and I'm now wondering if there is other damage to it like slight fracture or something...

On another note, I went out to one of our remote offices (also and tried to get the voice component of the VSAT system to work more reliably, but that still didn't happen. At least it was a nice 100+Km drive that I almost managed to sleep the entire journey...

Now I have to try and find a way to get around site...

Well I better get back to work then.

My Left Leg

So would you like to know why I'm at home NOT visiting friends?

Well, for one, I partially dislocated my knee/lower left leg!

So I was at work and doing yet another ERT (emergency response team) course - this time it was rope rescue - when I was made to be the "medic", which meant that I had to rescue a dummy by putting it into a stretcher and we both get hauled up the side of the pit by the rest of the team. Once I started to strap the dummy into the evac stretcher, I lost my footing, and twisted my ankle followed by falling on my own leg whereby dislocating it.

The strange thing about it is that it didn't really hurt that much until after it "popped" back in place.

So now I'm sitting at home blogging, playing WoW and generally doing SFA.
