It’s ALWAYS Brendan
Brendan’s right foot is injured. It’s probably a stress fracture, but X-rays aren’t conclusive and we won’t know anything definite until an MRI is done in a few days.
We are likely off the wall for at least four weeks, possibly longer. Obviously it’s very disappointing for us. We’ve spent a lot of time and effort on this trip, and we were enjoying ourselves and making good progress. But so it goes.
As things currently stand, we plan to resume our walk as soon as we can. When that is we don’t know and probably won’t for quite a while, as our return date will depend on Brendan’s response to rehabilitation as well as the severity of his injury, whatever that turns out to be. Of course, we’ll keep you informed on the site.
There is a tiny silver lining in this dark cloud. We’ve been chronically behind in posting, and right now we’ve got about a four-week backlog of posts. Finally we have all the time we need to clear out that backlog.
So in one way at least, things will be pretty normal around here. We’ll write about things that actually happened weeks ago as though they happened yesterday and fantasize about that day when we’re finally caught up and can post about things as they take place. With luck, when that day comes we’ll be back on the wall.
