I spent all day yesterday at the clinic getting poked and prodded and today I'm home from work as well. It's either an infection in my lower leg or a blocked artery, exacerbated by the long hours sitting in a chair doing paperwork. They don't have all the high tech gear out here like ultrasound to solve the puzzle so we're just taking it day by day with daily clinic visits and work restriction until it's better.
The weather on the crabbing grounds has been absolutely horrendous this past week inflicting damage on both men and equipment. The boats that fish for the company I work for, representing less than 10% of the crab fleet, have received the follwing damages: one boat had it's new decking torn completely off, one boat had it's "bow crinkled", and one boat had all the interior trim torn away in the wheel house. As I sat in the emergency room all day yesterday there was an endless stream of deckhands and fishery observers being treated for sprains, strains and breaks caused by the rough seas - made me feel a bit whimpy getting injured as a desk jockey in engineering . . .
Anyways, just this short session at the laptop has my leg uncomfortable, I'll check in later this evening - cheers, steve
