Arfar het die bike bo op jou been geval dat hy so sleg gebreek het ?
Subie, ek weet nou nog nie wat gebeur het nie.  Ek dink die son moes my vir 'n oomblik verblind het, want toe ek weer sien, toe le ek op my rug!

Nou dat jy dit noem ek het met swart insulation tape geplak op my visor aan die bokant gery in verneukpan toe oor die son in my oe was.
Shit dit was maar net bad luck. Dit lyk vir my maak nie saak hoe goed n mens ry nie. As die verkeerde dinge in plek val is dit maar net jou tyd. Ek het ook n paar noue ontkomings met diere gehad op my trip maar hulle het gelukkig vir my reg gespring.
Hoop julle manne is gou weer op die been en heeltemal gesond. Wonder hoe gaan dit met Safaritruck?

Hi Arfar

Glad you are out of hospital and we got to be injured "Brothers in Arms" together!
You really helped in keeping my attitude positive, you have a great way when facing absolute adversity to
Just lag about it!!!
I have also never seen somebody handle pain like you can........huge respect my friend!

Dr se vir Mambat dit lyk nie of hy iets gebreek het nie, die x-strale is bietjie dof of iets, dit lyk net of hy erg gekneus is, so Mambat kan nou maar reel om op die gouste. gerieflikste of watse manier ok al by die huis te kom.  Mambat boek toe vir hom 'n vliegtuigkaartjie, net een direkte vlug per dag Kaap toe.

That Dr should be struck from the registrar!
I and the radiographer told him stuff is broken and he said it was just bad bruising  ???
A real real bad attitude! Fucking prick!
The same x-rays taken were looked at by an ER specialist back in Blouberg as I landed...
He said mate you have broken....
Both little fingers
6 Ribs (some may have been from my earlier off it were broken)
Right elbow (severe compound fractures)
Left thumb (totally dislocated and seperated from hand, required a 4 hour op and a second op is required later in the year)
Two toes on right foot
And most dangerous, lacerated and damaged my liver (not allowed any alcohol for 6-8 months  :o)
And this was at the large private hospital in Upington.....scary stuff!

Very glad you are back and on the mend, great reading your story and having experienced allot of it with you, it seems funny now although at the time it was bloody scary!
I can only imagine what that 11 hour trip (ordeal) must have been like.....FAAAAAK!

Get better, get strong and I hope you realise your dream of riding in the Caprivi!

Cheers

Mambat

Jeez, From your report It sounds as if they should have referred you to at least 5 different specialists. But I remember Distinctly our(your and mine) learned and Bietjie knorrige arts announcing that as you have no broken parts, he cannot refer you to any specialist. So make your own way home. At that stage I was nogal jaloers, With the benefit of hindsight I now think they should have flown you out with a chopper or something. My evacuation experience, however, leaves me with great doubt that such a thing would actually take off.

Get well Soon And maybe you can join us on the obviously to be delayed Caprivi dream!
