Fokkit Michnus. Ek hoop jy's okay.

Want as jy moet doodgaan, gaan ek jou doodbliksem.

Beskou dit as 'n laaste waarskuwing. Intussen moet jy die kak hospitaalkos geniet.

'Mrs Michnus' here ...

Thanks for all the wishes.  When I left the hospital just before ten Michnus was doing much better.  He has fortunately no broken bones, but is quite badly bruised and we are a bit worried about his head injury.  Quite a bit of bruising around his hairline and under his hair, were told that the CT scan was fine - hoping to meet with the doctor in the morning.  

It happened SO fast, I need to still try and remember all the detail, but in short, it really just looked like his front wheel locked(??).  We were travelling down the highway, on a straight road only about 10km from home, and just passed a turnoff with traffic all around us. We were not going very fast, was actually 'cruising' behind the cars.  Next thing, Michnus' bike was tumbling into the barriers and he went first flying through the air and then tumbling into the the road.  Quite a bizarre incident.  Hopefully when we see the bike again we can piece it together.

He was passed out for a couple of minutes, and could not recall till he got to the hospital that we were on our way to the bash.  I am so grateful that he is alive.

Thanks for all the support, we will keep you guys updated.

Bliksem this wasn't lekker to hear when metaljockey told us. A bit of a shock. Better now when we heard he wasnt hurt that bad.
Still...
Sterkte Els, hou ons asb op hoogte.

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
