She's incredibly unlucky to have been run down, but I don't think she's really aware of how close to dead she was. Unconcious, face down, in the water. And the "lung" tube...may not have been for the lung, but to drain pericardial swelling? That's one adventure I'll be glad never to have.
Indeed. Then after all that the real hell for her is to not be able to do much around the boat because of the pain and injuries. I know one of the great pleasures I have with the boat is to slip over the side and go for a summer swim whenever I want. She not being able to do that in the Caribbean has got to be extremely frustrating. Then again her first goal is to just try and lift her limp left arm.
