Up to last night they drained 2 litres from RA's ribcage, there was still another 2 litres to go.

Sheez...


I take it he can't wait for the time when they'll finally be done piercing, poking, cutting, stitching and operating on him so he can just begin to grow back together...

Thanks for all the updates.

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

I just went to visit Charl ... the sister at intensive, wasn't too happy...out of visiting hour.

Anyway he is full of life and smiles. The doc says we will probably go into a general ward later today or tomorrow and then they will operate on his wrist and ankle on Monday.

He says he cannot wait to ride again and hopes to be ready for his May Skeleton Coast trip...Hey that's the spirit!

Charl could not say enough about ATGATT - seeing Philip who wiped two weeks ago without ATGATT at 20kph and seeing Charl there is NO compromise to the ATGATT rule. Philip's grazes and road rash are much worse than Charl's (who slid down the tar for 100 meters).

ATGATT rules.

Glad he's getting better.  Whoever sees him next please tell him we're all thinking of him.

Hi all
RA is under the knife at the moment - the plan is to fix lung, wrist and ankle at the same time. Will keep you posted.

Me again
Spoke to Charl (RA)'s wife - he just came out of theatre in good spirit. They fixed the whole lot it seems. He's got metal parts sticking out his wrist, a fibreglass cast round his ankle and they cleared out dry blood around his lung. He asked no visitors/calls till tomorrow please.
Lets give the guy a short break to get over the op and then let's get him back in the saddle!

Some good news
RA was just moved out of ICU to a general ward. It seems he is on the mend.

Ps - to get him back into things I took him the latest copy of Bike SA.
