I am sitting here waiting
for a phonecall from Calgary. Alexander is in the hospital.
With a bad concussion

so before all that, i did walk up the hill at Stony Creek again.
The light was very flat, the prints already dusted over with snow.
Still i didn't take all the right measurements.
Any way the matches booklet is exactly two inches long, which seems to make the track 5 by 5 inches.
The print seems to have three lobes as Meandering Michael suggested.
The other photo. The animal tracks on the right, mine on the left, my boots are 5 inches wide and 10 inches long.
So it could have been a cougar.
A lynx track is similar, but all i can think, when it was a lynx, it was very big one.

Let me know what you think.

And can you pray for Alexander... thank you

Whatever it is, it looks like a big animal. As for concussion, I hope it is not big, and subsides soon.

Thank you, They released Alexander from the hospital already, he is with my brother. To night i hope to talk to my brother and know a little more.
So thank God, he is kind of okay, but still it was a concussion and that scares me.

If they released Alexander from the hospital already that is a good sign.

Hope all goes well with this.

I know so many people with concussions right now, it is scary. The biggest thing is to REST and take it easy for the first while. It's hard with a concussion, because you don't "feel" injured as you might with a foot in a cast... so make sure he keeps track of his symptoms and does NOT get back into sports until he's completely symptom-free. For at least a week. And listen to Dr's advice! :)

Sending Alexander super positive, healthy vibes!!! :)
