He's got metal parts sticking out his wrist, a fibreglass cast round his ankle and they cleared out dry blood around his lung.

Our first 'bionic' Wild Dog. :)  Good to hear all is going well. Wish him and his family all of the best.
If you can keep your head in the midst of all this confusion, you don't understand the situation!

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

It has now been exactly 3 weeks since the fall. Here is the latest:
Charl (Red Adventure) was not getting better- Last night he was taken from Durbanville Medi-clinic to Panorama Medi-clinic where he will undergo chest surgery this morning. They plan to open his chest-cavity between the ribs, clean it out, inflate his one lung and close up again.
I pray everything goes well.

Charl is out of theatre and in ICU again. They had to cut through one rib to be able to clean out the chest cavity, so he will be sore as hell for a while- even more than after the accident. Doctor says they got alot of dry blood and clots out- that could be what was holding the healing-process back.
It sounds as if all went well - he asked no visits or calls till he is out of ICU please.

Lets hope that he'll heal now.  Please tell his family we're all thinking of them as much as him.

Well with great joy I can say that Red Adventure has just got home from hospital although a lot of hard work lies ahead in getting my lungs to where they need to be just moving around my own makes me feel that this recovery will b swift. To all you guys that showed so much concern about my wellbeing all that I can say is thank you. :D
