Morning - fire place

We woke up pretty late - some had already absolved the bath in the river - and this without telling me a word!!! Jerks! I wanted to swim as well! Ok i will do this later in the day. Maybe i could fall into the water unexpected - or we find some nice place for swimming on our way.

 

The plan for today was: drive to the place when we should start our kayaking trip - meet the guy who we rented the kayaks from, and off we go to our tent village:) some 6-8hrs <it depends of your mood and the water level>

 

The first part was easy, we drove there after having some breakfast - without making stress, just slow, as we had the whole day. Nobody rushed.

The second part was also without problems, the kayak-guy was there and our ‘boats’ (?) whatever - were waiting for us.

almost Amazonas;)

 

We had to wait for the last mates, who came after us. In that momentwe were a bit borred so Maniut (Lili - it’s ur guy;) said: Hey, guys, let’s jump into the water! - Rafal was about to do this - i didn’t wanted to jump, but to go just in and swim for a while, but at the end we all three jumped...

 

And that moment the blog should end...

Three guys jumped in the river, but only one came out safe...

Me and Maniut were hurt by some stuff from the bottom of the river (we didn’t see there anything, it could be a broken bottle or anything...) and we didn’t notice it! Our friends showed their most scary faces when we were coming out of the water.

Somebody said, we were bleeding!

When i saw Maniuts leg - there was a bad cut! Then i saw my own leg... there was no skin at all near my foot! ^%&@%R*$&+&W#!!!

I saw my own bone and other parts of my leg but from inside!

Everyone was scared! I said only: “I’m gonna to the ER”. I took my wallet with my ID card, pants and asked the kayak guy to drive us to the town to the hospital, cos the guys from ER would never find us in the forest, if we had called them to come and take us.

Justyna came with us. And it was good, cos she took care of two big boys, who can’t play safe hahaah;)

We got sewed at the hospital. It was funny, cuz we still were shocked and didn’t feel the pain. We made some jokes of how stupid we were. And after leaving the ER we looked and i said: "Hey, Maniut! Now we are brothers of blood!" hahaha - so we were laughing!  Then we came back to the town, where the rest of the group was already having rest after kayaking the first part of the day-trip. They were waiting for the news and waiting for us - dead or alive;) But we were still alive... only the pain was there with us. Artur (the only one, who didn’t drink a beer or anything) drove me back home. I stayed in my bed and he came back to the group.

 

The next day i was feeling worse and on monday i went see the surgeon - he send me to the hospital, where i had to spend the whole week...

no trochę jednak moja analiza rozminęła się z rzeczywistością, ale się starałam.
życzę szybkiego powrotu do zdrowia bez komplikacji (według mnie to bardzo poważne zranienie).
