Can anyone confirm that he is in Livingstone?  I have contacted the hospital but they have no record of anyone by that name being admitted.
I also phone the hospital to found out in which ward Dustdevil (Altus) is in.  However, all I could get was " Eisch. the computa he is not working".  Could get no further info.

Nevertheless, I am definitely going to visit the hospital on my way home the afternoon @ 6 pm and try to establish what the situation is and if we can in anyway help.

Will see you there at 6
I came here to drink milk and kick arse!  And i've just finished my milk.

Eish, that's why the ANC's proposed national health system he will also not wehk.

First-world health care is incompatible with AA,'cadre deployment' and African-style socialism. That's why African Big Men have always flown to Europe for medical treatment. Kind of ironic, innit?

I'm prepared to drink less as long as I can belong to a good medical fund. You do not want to end up in a ANC-style state hospital.

Just had a sms from Andrea , she says the the hospital has now at last given him the proper attention and examined him properly ( he has been there since last night ) and it is not as bad as she feared. He is in Livingstone ,  but wil be discharged in only 4 days time , so at least won't spend weeks and weeks in a hospital bed . I will ask her for the room number or send me a pm and I will give you her cell number

Thanks would be great if you guys visited.  :thumleft:

Its impossible, said pride. Its risky, said experience. 

Its pointless, said reason. Give it a try, whispered the heart.

Imagine if his injuries were VERY serious? This situation just sucks!!!! The guy comes in quite badly injured and half the numskulls there don't even know who he is!!! It seems without a proper medical aid in this country you are so screwed....

I hope DD is sorted quickly....
If you can keep your head in the midst of all this confusion, you don't understand the situation!

Good news.!  Just spoken to Dustdevil on cell phone.  He is in great spirit and commutative. Broken bones and bruises.  Waiting at present for an orthopaedic surgeon to examine him.  Unfortunately he is still on a trolley and must wait in SOC until they can allocate him a bed.  Arranged to visit him @ 6 tonight and see what can be done to help him and Andrea.

I don't know him, but happy to donate 2 g's if we can get him out of there to St. Georges. I also have an orthopedic surgeon friend biker who might help out for a reduced fee. Please call me 0827858139. Can't visit right now unfortunately.

Hell there are some good people on this forum!  Its truly inspiring to see this sort of support for each other.  In this jaded old world of ours, this sort of thing isn't as usual as it should be.

Being new here I don't feel I can really say much other than hope the guy gets well soon and thank God he seems to be OK!  Its always nasty to hear about someone being injured on a bike.
