Thursdays Injuries

With all the fun I had diving Thursday I knew it could not last. First, I strained my lower back changing out air tanks and did not realize how bad it was until I could not get out of bed this morning. Then to make matters worse I stubbed my big toe on a concrete step and it does not look good. I went to the pharmacy this morning in an effort to get bandages, an antibiotic cream and pain pills and muscle relaxers. Pharmacies throughout Central and South America distribute just about every pill needed without you having to see a doctor. However, he did suggest I let Dr. John look at my toe. I told him I would rest a couple of days and if it does not get better see him. Dr. John is supposedly a good doctor when not drinking or self-medicated.

Unfortunately my diving is on hold but such is life. Guess I will use the extra time trying to post more pictures.
