So glad to hear this Colyn. Strenght to you and Wiehann for the LONG recovery road ahead.

Buy your wife some chocolates, roses and some diamonds. She sounds like a fantastic woman and mother.

Impressive progress - well done to that.  And surviving the hospital is no small feat either!

Amen to that.

Great to hear your son is home Colyn, now he will be in good hands./
If I was you I would tell them to charge his last night in hospital to that ignoramus doctor, explain to your medical aid what happened, let THEM tell the hospital to piss off.
Ask that doctor why he has a 'Practice', the rest of us don't practice, we KNOW what we are doing..... >:D >:D

Doctors mostly just piss me off, farking arrogant bunch, all types...... >:D >:D
If you can keep your head in the midst of all this confusion, you don't understand the situation!

My notes on the last seven days :

1. I heard a father on the phone with a sense of urgency and alarm in his voice that I have never heard before when he told me that his son was in an accident.

2. I saw a father's face when he saw his son lying in the middle of the road in a pool of blood.

3. I head a father say that he must now and tell his wife that their son was in a huge accident.

4. I saw a father on the edge of freeking out but keeping cool to support his wife.

5. I saw a father's face after the surgeon told him that the chances of saving his son's arm was very slim.

6. I saw a mother, with here face saying, " I would have taken his place on that table, if I could"

7 I heard the relief in a father's voice when he told me that after a 10 hour operation his son was stable in the ICU.

8 I saw a father's relief when his son walked into the coffee shop yesterday.

9. I saw a father's smile when his son walked into his house this morning.

10. I saw a mother and father's recognition of the Grace of God.

Wow....Skillie, I'm prepared to openly admit that you brought a tear to this sentimental old fool's eye this morning. ;)
Hope to meet you guys in person sooner rather than later.

HI Colyn

PLease could you tell me the name of the hospital? Is it Nelspruit? pm. me if you wish...

Regards
Steyn

PS: Just keep believing. I nearly lost my arm in 1992. IT was an open reduction just below the elbow..It happened in Phalaborwa. The  Phalaborwa doctors wanted to amputate, but luckily I was transferred to Pietersburg where a doctor managed in a 6-hour operation to save the arm. I believe that the only thing that saved me was the prayers from friends and family.
Arm pump!? What arm pump?

Hi Colyn, Baie bly dit gaan goed met Wiehann - ek het hom gesien Wo in die hospitaal by die kafeteria saam met sy ma - was lekker om hom te sien glimlag. Ek glo en vertrou hy sal ten volle herstel ... dit vat maar 'n tydjie - ek is nog steeds besig met fisio na my val verlede jaar - sorg net dat hy sy oefeninge doen - dit help! Ons is so bly hy lewe en dat hy al so mooi herstel het.
Groete Rika

A few more shots ...










He has more control over his hand and fingers now but still nothing in his upper arm. Thank you all for your support.

02/02/12 - RIP Glen - the Arrow of Elliot and the little man with the big heart that truly was larger than life.

You have touched us and left us better for having known you - even if it was only briefly.

For grabbing the moment and living the day It's been way too early that you were taken away

Hey Colyn
I'm glad to see your son saved by grace. :angel9:

With my 4week stay in hospital my wife got the same "don't interfere here" talk :argue: but luckily for me the Physician was a personal friend of mine and told her to get as involved as she could. :help:

A message to all that might experience a loved one on hospital these days, visiting hours are for other family but you need to be there if the injuries have any chance of an infection!!!! :director:

 :salut: To you and your wife for getting involved.
