Clubmate Down...
Guys,
Gruntmax has a few problems that we need to help him with.

He has suffered a head injury and is still having a few issues with it.

Please give him some latitude and just submit a report to the Mods if you dislike something he has written. We'll give him what assistance we can. This is all about us caring for each other as a club and looking after each other's needs as they arise.


Kind regards.


Max

Timothy couldn't talk the doctor in to letting him out. He's not quite out of PTA yet. They ask 12? Questions, and he has to get them right for three days in a row. He failed. He did tell them that he didn't have a good memory before the accident.
He was asking me to check if some business cards he had ordered were ready. ( he got them the day before) also had sign writing done on the Ute ( doesn't remember that either)
It's hard to believe that its 4 weeks tomorrow that he had the accident. He has come so far, much better than we would have thought, with what he was like, when we first saw him.
Cheers,
Pete

If you feel a diatribe like this coming on, please pm me personally so I can assist you with the appropriate place to put it mate.

Thanks for the consideration fella. And your continuing thoughts for Timmy.


Cheers

Thanks for your concern Max. It may come as surprise, but I actually posted the last "deleted" for Tim's benefit, but I known you've deleted for the benefit of the "wingers" on this forum. I know he'll be able to "relate" to it. Lend him some cash so he can get a taxi to escape for a while.
Cheers

Quote:When I got to Epworth today, Timothy was at a "coffee club" meeting. The patients in his ward, get together and talk about their selves. He had a visit from Peter Walker today. I asked the nurse if we can let people know if he is allowed friends, she is going to ask the doctor tomorrow. I will let you know. Timothy is under the impression that he will be allowed out next weekend, and told Peter. No he won't be. The photo is to show Timothy that he had sign writing done his Ute, he still doesn't believe me.
Had fun getting home today. Not only are there no trains on the Ballarat line (due to track work). So we have to get a bus into Southern Cross and then a tram. The tram tonight stopped at Fed Square, and had to get a train from Flinders to SC then the bus.

Nice work mate.

He seems physically ok to go home in my opinion. Yes he's got his arm in a brace/frame lookin thing, but that seems to be it, the jaw's ok, as is the eye socket. He has problems with his memory..... he's forgotten stuff from about 2 weeks prior to the accident. He's in good spirits though, just bored stupid. They won't let him watch TV, and has to remain quiet and relaxed. I was in there for about 90mins, chattin away with he and Bridget. She's exhausted from the ordeal! Hopefully he'll be ok to go home in 10 days or so

Sounds good to go Pete, wonder what the issue with the TV is?

Would have thought it would be a stimulant for the brain?



PS.. When are you going to let us see the "other" bike, the nekkid one?

Someone should drop Timmi in a laptop or Tablet so he can get online and let us know how he's travelling.

He has a laptop, but they aren't allowed to bring it in just yet.
I woulda thought the mental stimulation thing would be a plus too, but no!!

Obviously there's underlying issues that we're not privvy to. (Or being a simpleton, can't pick up on)

The hospital staff are worried he will have an epileptic fit if watching TV. Same thing goes for drinking a beer.

I hear what you're saying mate, when I was in hospital for a fortnight in Sydney in 2010 I was desperate to get out. Went as far as walking out the doors to the outside in my stockings and pjs and realised I wouldn't get far with operative my knee and no money so turned back and bit the bullet. Sometimes it's not about the things we want as apposed to the things the treating staff want for us!

Cheers

After the weekend, Timothy will be able to have visitors, no more than one or two at a time (other than Ivan and me)
Epworth Rehab, Bridge Road,Richmond.
Normanby Building, ward 3NC, room 11. I think visiting hours are in the afternoon.
He was a bit down today. I think he was tired. He said he doesn't sleep much.
Yesterday after Peter left, I think he lasted 10 minutes before he fell asleep. Same today, we spent 20 minutes in the day room, then Ivan gave him a shave, we talked for about 10 minutes and then, asleep again. He said he doesn't sleep at night, 10pm to 8-30am, sounds like a good sleep to me. I wish I could sleep for that long
Cheers,
Pete

Might pay to post up hear or on the Facebook page if you plan on a visit so we don't ambush Tim all at once . I hope to get over in the next couple of weeks to see him .
