To begin at the beginning:
Mount Hutt was nice enough yesterday, but there were a lot of wind damaged areas with mixed icy and crusty snow. Heather managed to encounter one of these and had a big slide, during which she hit her left shoulder and ended up down at a beginner trail, leaving a "yard sale" of skis and poles back up the hill.
We skied down to her and she was not keen to move - a patroller showed up quickly, then a couple more arrived with a sled and a back board. They rolled her onto the board, strapped her in to the sled, and she had her first toboggan ride to the medical room.
This morning she is waiting for the bone people, and I'll collect her when they've decided what to do. I suspect that she'll have the arm in a sling for several weeks, which means she won't be able to go to work and I'll be the chief cook and bottlewasher. This has probably ended the 2009 ski season for both of us...
UPDATE 2PM SATURDAY
Heather is home, with a broken arm and a cracked pelvis. The pelvis is not as painful as the arm, and she can walk slowly with a stick - but that means that she can't carry anything. More later.
