Jopela has decided not to
lower below the 4,000 meters and to go to the center at Periche because it
assures to feel better.
Yesterday, following the
recommendations of International Association Altitude Mountain (IAAM), he was
put under a treatment that consisted of 8 mg. of dexametasona, 10 mg. of
nifedipino, 250 mg. of acetazolamida and inhalations of salbuterol that caused
that it felt more good and he is anticipated that the next days will be
decisive definitively to consider the state of health of the climber as well
as its possibilities of getting up themselves to the rest of the group in
their attempt to arrive at the top of the ceiling of the world.
Meanwhile, the expedition "Mallorca
a dalt of tot. Everest 2005" initiates a new period of rest of five days. The
last weather forecasts advise against any attempt of progression towards Field
III (7.200m.) - following passage of the group through the Valley of Silencio
until the wall of the Lhotse, since in the next days forts are expected
precipitations in snow form and forts winds around the bulk of the Sagarmatha.
