It's ski season again. This year I moved the whole company and a half of me to New York City, acquired two architectural firms and an European hotel brand, invested in an environmental technology company and electric car manufacturing industry, as well as focused on new regions. It’s been a very hard year for me, and always flying around. On a rare holiday, also to avoid the crowds of the Christmas season, I decided to treat myself to a skiing trip. I just didn't expect an accident happened...
On the third day of my trip on the Swiss Alps, accidentally I hit big rocks on the way of speed skiing, I fell too far and hurt my neck. At that moment, I felt severe pain in my body, numbness in my limbs and could not move. Lying in the snow seemed to lose my strength and temperature in an instant, then I went into shock within an inch of my life. Later I have known that I was helicoptered to the downtown hospital. After the rescue day and night, slightly the stability of me.
Then I stayed there for two weeks before I just got out of hospital. I didn't get well, I still continues in weak health, the body still aches, the neck still needs a brace, continue taking medicine and go back to the hospital for further treatment every week. Now I have to stay quiet in the town, the doctors told me not to drink a range of caffeinated foods and drinks such as coffee and tea, only soup and liquid diets for the time being, and don’t do strenuous exercise for the next three to six months, in order to recover, I have to endure a lot of restrictions. Obviously I'm going to be resting for the next three months.
Enid comforted me, “God knows you've been working too hard this year. Maybe it's to make you stop and have a good rest, otherwise you won't stop at all.” Thank God, I got my life back again. Thanks so much to my friends, my mountain guides, the doctors and nurses who took care of me during this period.
