Second Rest Day at Base Camp (February 18th)

After our carry up to Camp I yesterday, one of our teammates—Jake, a firefighter from Fort Worth, TX—was not feeling well (he vomited on the way down from Camp I) and had really low blood pressure. The doctor gave him some medicine but unfortunately he has not improved so he will be medevac’d out by helicopter tomorrow. We are all very sad to see him go. On a slightly more positive note, the teammate who got hit by the rock slide yesterday is in good spirits after some rest (and painkillers). Her leg is starting to bruise up really badly, but she is going to soldier on with us.
