Getting there. Managed to walk the dog the other day. Luckily she is well behaved on the lead.
The Orthopaedic consultant has said I can remove the brace temporarily to get a shave and haircut. Two months beard and hair will be a relief to get rid of. I usually have the head and face well shaved.
The accounts department from the hospital informed me that as it was an RTA, costs are 11000. They phoned me to tell me not to get alarmed as it will be taken from her insurers. I believe social security will also chase them for my illness benefit.
I still have another 2 months full sick leave. Am going to slowly build up fitness. The right wrist has been a week out of cast and is only getting a bit of mobility back Very sore so maybe overdoing it
The days can sometimes drag in. I'm thinking of putting up some You tube gear reviews. The last time I did video editing was in 1986 at college Will see how it goes.
The Orthopaedic team are confident my spine will be fine for backpacking. The worry is that I'm 50% down on arterial function to the brain. I'll have to build up the fitness for that. Breathing, oxygenation and being mindful will be on the cards. Luckily I chucked the smokes over 8 years ago.
So, that is the latest. All good progress.

Good to hear that things are heading in the right direction.
