Long time NSR member and past Team Leader, Bridget Milsom, was climbing a peak in Nepal last week and fell 50m fracturing her arm and ankle. Bridget was climbing at an elevation 6000m and was evacuated via helicopter.
Bridget had to undergo emergency surgery in Katmandu. She arrived home on Wednesday and was taken to Lions Gate Hospital for reassessment. She is still in LGH recovering, however she is on the mend.
I received a note from her today saying she is glad to be alive and back in Vancouver.
Its good to have you back Bridget, everyone at NSR is thinking of you, and we look forward to seeing you back on your feet!
