Fcuk...hope the man heals up well.
Barr the broken leg, its a carbon copy of a recent injury list for me and I lay in the same ICU.I hope he gets Goldstein as his ortho, good oke

As noted, that lung is gonna be a bitch and it will most likely have a drain installed....if u haven't had to watch that thing being removed from your chest, I can assure u its a touch scary.

Never nice to hear a fellow WD down...in my thoughts

Any news?

At this stage the biggest problem is the punctured lung.  Dont think they can operate on his leg etc if he cannot
breath properly, and anesthetic would probably not be an option.

Do you know if he has a chest tube fitted to relief the pressure? It can take anything from a couple of days to two weeks depending on the severity of the damage to heal and that hurts like a bitch!

Ganjora, Life is a precious thing, as one is reminded when in the ICU. Keep healing in your mind, every day and the body will follow.

Dave is doing a bit better now.....

The broken leg is not so bad.  No need to operate. Most probably going to be wearing a moonboot to heal up.

The collorbone is still under discussion, but they are still focussing on the punctured lung as a priority.

Still got a drainage pipe in and as most people with experience will tell you, this is very "eina" and each breath that you
take is filled with pain..................but the doctors are positive that things starting to look slowly better.

Still in ICU and not ready to see visitors. Only direct family.
