Title: Wilddog down on Sunday - Stephan
Post by: Uninvited on October 27, 2009, 07:59:03 am
A workmate took a tumble on Sunday and I hear it was with a few 'dawgs.
Can anyone provide further info and contact details of the fellow riders?
Would like to visit him but have zippo info.
Please mail me if you can.

He is in Unitas as I understand, check first if you can visit he was in ICU, ribs, collar bone skapula, but his lung collapsed due to the ribs hence ICU. Let us know how he is if you manage to see him?

Stephan is still in ICU, so no visitors allowed yet. Just got an update from Miena Moo - He's doing much better, still on oxygen coz his lungs took quite a beating. She will only see him at 11 this morning and will update a bit later.
Title: Re: Wilddog down on Sunday - Stephan

Thanks for the feedback.
We have a visiting team of 2 biker volunteers so far, so look forward to when we can go thru.

Stephan is improving. He's still in ICU, so only family members allowed at the moment. Doc said he doesn't have to operate on the broken bones as the breaks are "clean" and he will be OK with a sling for the next month or so. He will be moved to a normal ward in the next day or 2 and then we can go visit.


<EDIT>
Nothing is ever simple, Stephan's son, Kobie, is also in Unitas, having undergone an operation on his knee this morning. I think the family is falling apart.......

I listened like my arse when MM was talking. Not TD.

He had his previous off on the 31st Oct last year so yes it almost a year...
By the look on his face  ::) when moving he will not be attending the Bash this year, thus leaving me to find a "new" riding buddy to the Bash.. ???

I would like to extend my gratitute to Tanya & Miena Moo for getting him to the hospital and ensuring that his son Kobie got the hospital for his operation.
You girls rock!!

Doctor also advised that he wont be diving again due to the damage to his lunges.

Most doctors will say this as par for the course, but once everything has settled he should go & have it checked out by a specialist - Dr Kayle is good. I have a friend who was shot in the lung with an ak47 in a hijacking, all the surgeons said no more diving, but after checking it out properly, he couldn't do deep technical dives anymore, but was still able to dive.

Judging by his track record and damages to his body I think a slight refocus on weekend activities should be in order?

Can't go visit the old man untill he's moved to a normal ward, which will happen soon (I hope) For now it's family only. Will update and let you know when to go.
Title: Re: Wilddog down on Sunday - Stephan
Post by: Miena Moo on October 29, 2009, 01:32:37 pm
Just spoke to the family.He looks so much better.Still in highcare.I am seeing him at 15h00.

They started taking him of the oxygen to see if he can breath with out it.Might be moved to a normal ward tomorrow but we will know later or tomorrow morning.Will advise you guys as soon as tht happens and the ward number for those that wants to visit.

Will update again at 16h00 after I have been to see him.Its actually funny.We have the nurses confused as myself and Tanya(Zonkels girl) have been there everyday.They think Stephan has a fiance,wife and a Friend with benefits.We had to lie as they would not have allowed us. :imaposer:

i think the nurses must think he is a STUD! I would not be surprised if he gets a few phone numbers while there.

Ye I have to say thanks to the girls they did so much for him. Visiting them everyday and helping and running around for him. Again, this is not surprising to see. I have seen this as a norm in the Wilddog fraternity. Everybody helps everybody.

When I visited him Sunday after the ride, I was dirty as hell and told them I am his brother. So they let me in.

Thanks to everybody
