    Hope everything goes well and might catch you when your back in Canada. I'm not likely to be in Africa. All the Best Man.

    I saw Patrick this morning, he has had his second (and last) operation and has some pain, (he mentioned it to the Doc while I was there, the Doc replied "like hello, you did have an operation you know?").

    So he is looking good, can sit on the bed today and all things operate although with some effort. So he is still hoping to get on a flight at the end of the week.. not sure if he will make that, but lets see how he goes.

    Thanks Welshman for the visits and updates. :thumb
    It's really amazing that Patrick can even consider flying so soon after such a wreck. With all the carpentry work he's had done and those screws/pins/plates I'm sure he'll have fun at airport security from now on...

    He is at about 60 screws, but it adds up, he had 4 breaks in the forearm so there are 36 in there and one finger has 6 on its own:D

    His current mission, is talking his surgeon into getting his own bike:1drink
