Viewing Post for: 2011 Kilimanjaro Climb for Cancer

Date: February 28, 7pm
Location: After Summit Update

February 28, 7 pm, Noel gave his flashlight to his brother so Ernani could go to the bathroom and then fell in the dark. He dislocated his little finger to a 90 degree bend. Minutes later in his tent Gabriele reset it with a short intense burst of pain on Noel's part. It is splinted to his next finger and he is doing fine. Don't worry at home, he is fine with it realigned.

Ouch! Sorry to read about your finger, Noel! Glad someone was able to relocate it and splint it for you. If you fell in the dark, I guess it could have been much worse! Congratulations to you both! Ernani, come home safe. We love you and can't wait to see you! A mina and I will be at the airport on Friday to welcome you both! Lots of love! Sarah

I have to say, I'm pretty surprised that you didn't reduce Ernani's finger yourself! Oh, and I have a fun surprise for you when you get home. Let's just say, I found it in Vermont on my snowshoeing adventure, it's brown, and it smells like pine needles. I bet you're wondering now if this gift is REALLY what you think it is. And I bet you're wondering if I've lost my mind, bringing THAT back to the city with me. I guess you'll find out in a couple of days! Enjoy the rest of the hike!!!

For: TJ case you haven't heard yet...(which could be very possible being on top of a mountain)..the NHL trading deadline is over (since 3 pm today) and we are very happy to know that we'll stay in Buffalo. It is always a very crazy time....but the Sabres got a new Forward (BOYES from St. Louis) who should be very good for the team. as you can see didn't miss much here!;-) have a safe trip back home - you did a great job!!!
