At the end of last week, the surgeon who gave me a new knee made his spring visit to Bella Coola. It was a good chance to see what he thought (he admired his carpentry work!) and I also visited two different physiotherapists and got a lot of homework to do. Thankyou again to everyone who has offered encouragement. I can now walk slowly across the room with no sticks, but I still use poles or crutches outside – partly because it is faster and I am less likely to be eaten alive by blackflies! I still can’t quite manage without pain killers, but I am obviously getting there.
As usual, I stayed with my friends at Stuie, about 80 km up-valley from Bella Coola. (This is Melican, one of the mountains seen from their backyard.)
