Back at it!

Well, after consulting and being treated by the Medical team at home: Doctor, Steve Keeler; Orthopedic Surgeon, Charles Nelson (who consulted a plastic surgeon); Chiro, Rob Hasegawa; Massage Kim Ward and Gibson Brown and having a CT Scan two days after arriving it was still clear I had a fractured scaphoid and torn intercostals in my chest. However, Charles and plastic surgeon both said I was at low risk of doing more damage to my wrist ie displacing bone fragment by training and racing. They had me go get a custom removeable cast to wear while I wasn't training and then I would just tape my wrist for swimming and cycling.

With this good news in hand, I then had the difficult task of booking new flights to the next two world cups in South Korea and South Africa.

.........more to this story once I arrive in Hong Kong.......................

PS I already raced S Korea, had a solid race but still not at my level but came 16th.

More on that later.
