3 years in the making, Wazi is finished. Let their courage and strength inspire us.
For those who haven’t heard, Breezy has had an accident, so she and I flew home early so she could have surgery. All our versions of the story are a bit different, but here is mine.
We decided to go to Machame for 2 days, which is located right along a beautiful river. We were warned that there are many dangerous water buffalo around the area and we should take extra precaution. As we were hiking down to the river, Breezy decided she wanted to wander off the trail. As she did so, a water buffalo ran out of the bushes nearby. She freaked out and started running back toward us, when all the sudden, she slipped on the mud.
We all ran toward her, Ryan, being the first on the scene tried to calm her down and continued to tell her it’s going to be okay. Josh and I were next and both kinda froze when we saw her ankle at a 90 degree angle. Calmly, Megan reached her and casually popped her ankle back into place.
I ran to get help and found two amazingly nice people nearby with a car. Ryan, Josh, and Alex took turns crawling on all fours with Breezy on their backs as Megan held her leg in place.
3 hours later, we arrived at the hospital in Moshi. The doctors told us she broke her fibula and ankle and she needs surgery within the next 5 days. She and I caught the first flight we could back to the States.
She went into surgery today and is doing very well considering all that she has been through.
We have officially finished shooting in Africa. We have about two days of travel ahead of us before we’ll be back in the states. I anxiously await dome time for a little rest and relaxation.
This past week has been a wild one. It started with Breezy slipping and snapping her ankle at the bottom of this beautiful ravine. Megan took charge and before we knew it we were carrying breezy on her back, while Megan stabilized her ankle as we carried her up a hill, and to our luck found some Germans who had a car, and were willing to take us to the hospital.
It turns out the break was pretty bad, and the doctors suggested that breezy fly home to the states to have surgery. So Keri and Breezy left a couple of days ago, and we’ve been keeping them in our prayers.
Having breezy get hurt put a lot of things in perspective for me, and made me grateful for all that we’ve been able to accomplish over here.
These last few days have been pretty rough on me as well, I have contracted some sort of sickness, and I am anxiously awaiting to be done with all this traveling.
