As many of you know last October my wife took a spill on Kodiak and broke both bones in her lower left leg.
The story is here:
Some of you requested a progress report on her condition since and I have failed to do so but needless to say she is doing well even now its hard to believe she is just 9 months post break.
She's been pretty active between the following:
A mellow hunting trip via bikes for our anniversary in mid May
Able to take her first ever black bear near the end of May
In mid June she made a 7 mile slog through the swamps north of Trapper Creek w/ a 40 pound pack for a packrafting trip (that one taxed her healing leg a bit)
And just a few days ago we hit the mountains a bit with her packing a 45 pound pack around
We land in sheep country in just 18 days and even though she will only be 10 months post break we are hoping to have her be the first one between the two of us to bag a ram for the wall. Thanks to everyone that gave well wishes and prayers it certainly helped in the recovery process for her. And a special thanks to Steve for getting her off the mountain safely and helping her gain the confidence a bit that she still has what it takes to chase the critters. With a caribou, moose, sheep, and some deer with her name on it the next several months will be the true test.
