    From his daughter Sarah on FB (public)
    Update on how dad is going:
    His operations have all gone well. He's alot more alert, nodding and shaking his head in response to questions, trying to smile alot more.
    He has feeling in his arms, hands, feet, tummy and legs. Dad is able to move his left arm over his body and is starting to move his right arm.
    They are going to take him off the breathing machine and do a trachea tube, that way he'll be able to do alot more physio and start rehab.
    They are also going to do a skin graft on his leg tomorrow.

    Still only immediate family as he's still in ICU.
    We won't know more until after Friday sometime.

    Thank you all for all of your support, love, care and positive prayers!

    We went to visit Glenn today. He is improving. Had 6 ops so far and has had lung problems, can't move due breaks in his neck and numerous other injuries. He could smile, kind of laugh and listen to our BS but he has a trac tube at the moment so he can't talk. He seems in great spirits all things considered. He will likely still be up here for a while yet so we will go back next week for another visit. Going to look for downloads of Adventure Rider Radio so he can listen to some of them.
    I gave him all your warm wishes.
    A friend of his family has set up a GoFundMe page to help with all the travel etc. https://www.gofundme.com/glenn039s-recovery if anyone would be able to help.

    We went to see Glenn for the last time today. Anytime in the next day or two he will be flown to North Sydney, closer to his family. (although still 4 hours from them).
    He is very bright and chatty now. Can move his arms but so far nothing from the chest down. That doesn't mean it won't change, there is still likely to be swelling and other impediments. He and Anne both seem to be in positive spirits and hanging in tough. If your are near North Shore / North Sydney he will be in the hospital there. If you would like to visit I can get some info for you.
