    You funny man Dusty! :lol3

    Rob, that bruise looks painful, must take your mind off of your elbow for now.

    Good luck with the operation tomorrow.

    Get well soon. That headlight has a solid gold lining by the way. Cha ching!

    Next time, get a white Tiger, they're the least likely to lie down and they go faster too. :wink:

    This is from Rob today after his operation.


    "Home now. Reality was even worse again. More broken bits and about 90% of
    the soft tissue was torn from the bones as well. I saw the "after" xrays
    this morning. There is a LOT of snazzy looking hardware in there. I took
    them 5 hrs to do the op.
    Spent the night in ICU as I apparently had bruised lungs too and my blood
    ox levels were a bit low. It was a pretty rough night but I eventually
    woke up good this morning.
    They sent me up to the ward around 9. Spent the day recovering there any
    getting a bit more rest.
    I currently don't have a lot of feeling in my hand due to the swelling etc
    but that should be good in a day or so.

    In the cast for about 2 weeks then a brace for about another 4-6 weeks. A
    lot of physio to come. Doc says I should get approx 80-90% full range of
    movement back. 100% sounds better to me."

    Will talk to you tomorrow.

    Right where I need to be
    Damn, sounds pretty rough; here's hoping you get that 100% back.

    Scenery out there looks stunning though; will have to tour Australia one of these days. Thanks for sharing.

    Seeing as it's a damp day I'd thought I'd add a couple of more pics.

    We ran into this bloke at Gayndah. He's been round a bit apparently :D

    The pool table was really slow and it was like trying to push a ball a wool along velcro

    [​IMG]

    Kept the crowd entertained

    [​IMG]

    The new publicans Mark & Trish were great and at $35 per bed with a cooked breakfast what more could you want

    [​IMG]

    We'll definitely be back there for "Rob's Recovery Ride" :thumb

    Cheers.


    ps. Hey Rumble where's the pic of us enjoying Rob's shout at the bar ?
