“I’m feeling quite a lot better, I can’t move around a whole lot,” Mr. McField said in a telephone interview from Miami, Florida Thursday just hours before his flight left. “It was incredible the way the operation went…it’s really a miracle.”
Mr. McField said he would have to use a walker during a rehab period which would be needed so the broken bone in his leg might recover fully. He said a local doctor would assist in his physiotherapy and had no idea how long the recovery might take.
“If I really work hard and I’m not lazy, it’ll go fast,” he said.
The former MLA and radio talk show host said he realises there has been a bevy of speculation about what happened to him before he showed up at the Cayman Islands hospital with a bullet in his leg early Thursday, 1 December. He said he was reluctant to comment on the full specifics of what he remembers, but there were a few things he wished to clarify.
“I have not committed any criminal act,” he said. “I didn’t shoot myself.”
Asked why, if he hadn’t fired the shot that struck his leg, police didn’t arrest someone in connection with the incident.
“It’s a complicated situation,” he said. “There’s an ongoing police investigation and there’s very little you can say to prevent people…from speculating about other people’s misfortunes.”
