  1. have just had a phone call from Karita (Cols wife)

    he is awake and all the life support tubes and stuff have been removed

    he is still a little hazy and drug f@#ked but he is a lot better than anyone first thought he would be

    he has a smashed right hip and pelvis, triple fracture to his right thigh bone, broke left shin bone, harline fracture to his neck, and a broken collar bone, he is all plated and screwed together but looking good.

    his right foot (that was badly damaged in the accident) is looking good and blood is flowing well.

    once again Karita asked me to pass on her deepest and most sincere thanks for all the well wishes and donations

    she is hoping a few people would like to call in and see him in a few weeks and call him a bloody idiot :D

    but at the moment it is looking alot better than a few days ago

    i will keep you all posted

  2. Great News!!! :)

    Pass on my best wishes for a speedy recovery...

    Thanks for the heads up Simon, good job. Thanks to all the netrider community who got behind the Brokey family, esp those who picked up the bike and did a lot off behind teh scenes work we don't hear about onteh forums etc.
    Even those like meself who donated, and those that passed on all the good wishes.

    Restores your faith in humanity it does (sniff sniff)
