In the early evening I took a taxi with Fr Paddy Mugavin to the “Reina Sofia” Hospital in Tudela. Paddy, who speaks fluent Spanish having been a missionary in Chile for six years in the late eighties and early nineties, was my interpreter. I could not have been happier with care I received. My blood pressure was 138 over 78, and my heart rate was 58. I had blood and urine tests. All is well. The doctor prescribed some Daflon tablets to drain the build up of fluid in my shins as a result of the trauma and some special Compressport socks which we purchased from a Farmacia on on way back to the hotel.
The doctor says I can begin to walk the Camino again when the swelling in my legs goes down.
