Ooops

Last Saturday, 2nd May, I fell awkwardly when I was being dressed. 6 days later I am sitting, re-united with my computer and finally can post.

Having had, to use a phrase coined by Ros and Fay, "thirteen screws in one day" I am busy re-rehabilitating, not load-bearing for 12 weeks and probably not TrailRiding much.

There is lots to write about though as the next few days will show. Watch out for a Guest Post from John Kenwright disclosing how he spends his non TrailRider time and a discussion of hemets.

  1. That's the bad news.
    The good news is a) you are back in Castlemaine Rehab ward (hooray!)
    b) You don't have a broken pelvis or hip (hooray!)
    c) You can come home as soon as SWEP delivers that damn hoist that should have been here 4 months ago! (Boo!)
    d) It's Winter so the plaster won't cause as much discomfort as it would if it was Summer.
    e) The plaster only comes up to the knee so you'll be able to use the pedal maching (Hooray!)
    f) You still have a big smile on your face and hope in your heart (the biggest Hooray of them all)

  4. There is always good news. It is just that sometimes it is hard to find. Dave and Ros are both good news finders.

  7. So sorry to hear about your fall. Ouch. That looks painful. Sending good vibes your way. Just writing to let you know that Steve Moneghetti is a big fan of the TrailRider. Steve ran with the kids in the Fun Run at the Ballarat Specialist School two months ago. My son Tom (age 7) uses a wheelchair but he got the chance to 'run' via the TrailRider with his friends. I met Steve Moneghetti at Federation University in Ballarat on Thursday night when I received my Foundation Scholarship. We talked about the TrailRider. So that was pretty exciting. I think he'd be a great ambassador; he is community minded and very supportive of kids with disabilities getting out and about. It's so great that there are more TrailRiders in the community. Thanks to everyone involved. Cheers, Bianca X

    Dave.
