What are you doing in a public hospital? There are several good private hospitals in Gran Canaria, in fact appr. 25% of all hospital beds there are private. I have heard that the Hospiten Clinica Roca in San Agustín is good, and the same group just opened a new one in Puerto Rico. These places are at the other end of the (rather small) island, but you would probably be able to find a good one in Las Palmas too. Have your insurance company arrange a transfer, if you are still down there!

Heal up, and keep the thriller going!

I gots other things to get done too! Besides I can only relive so much of this trauma at a time. I left my beer outside from the Superbowl and it was frozen or I would have given you another installment last night. Can't write this without a few cocktails.

ThorH, they really didn't give me a choice of hospital and I was in no conditon to choose if they had. I had been face up in various flying machines for ahwile and was just glad someone else had things under control. I have no idea what the Canary Islands look like from the ground to 20' up. I was always in an ambulance or in a hospital room. They do have plenty of palm trees.

Now just you wait till I get to the private hospital part becsause there is one.

Daughter in the Canary Islands now

My daughter is in the Canary Islands right now as an exchange student. I send you a PM and an e-mail. I sent her cell phone number and e-mail. Have your wife call her also. E-mail me back with your name and particulars.

Fantastic, gripping, horrifying...

May I print up the main chapters to share with some other friends not on this board?

This should be in ride reports. It is a ride unto itself.

And it certainly is an adventure.

Ok Ok I'm working on it.

If the mods want to move this to ride reports I don't care. It was on helluva ride. Would have been easier to stay in the race.
