On Saturday 11th February Kate, along with her husband Paul and stepson Jack, started on the Overland Track in Tasmania. After a long day climbing a mountain and trekking along thin boards in horizontal freezing rain, they were descending earth/stone steps only 15 minutes from the conclusion of the day’s walking, when Kate rolled her ankle outwards and heard a pop. Yuk. A fractured fibula.
She got a free helicopter ride to Hobart and also enjoyed her first ambulance and wheelchair ride, and now has 6 weeks in a cast. It was an adventure; just not quite the adventure she’d hoped!
If you’ve ever had crutches before you’ll know they’re mega tiring to use, so our wonderful staff will be escorting you to and from Kate’s consultation room, and Kate will also be asking some help from her colleague optometrists Felicity and Natalie.
Thank you for your patience while Kate’s mobility is impaired over the next several weeks.
