  1. Dear Tom,
    it was a terrible shock to hear about your accident, we were able to see Ollie on Monday when he was in Oxford. We’re thinking about you and rooting for you and your great family and Ellen. Thank God you and they are so strong and brave, if anyone in the whole wide world can make the best of this challenge, it’s you!
    We are waiting to hear from Ged, he’ll be hooking up with you when he gets details about the site.
    Lots of love Tom
    Hugh and Hoonie

  7. We are reading the daily progress avidly. I would like Tom to know I’m thinking of him but I am such a dumb idiot it took lots of advice from Polly and then David before I logged on. Heroes!

    When you next talk to Tom, please tell him that I forgive him for standing me up at the Playhouse and I vividly remember times which he doesn’t: spent walking in North Wales, when he was the head of the children but aged about 4 – perhaps even not 4. I am also remembering a visit to my place in France when Tom Ollie and Polly all tumbled out of a van; and where Tom made a gigantic leap into the local lake which was almost as good to watch as the great photo of him throwing Luc – on this website. And then we all spent the evening listening to the guitar on the terrace of my old house – dodging bats in the gathering darkness and listening to the squeaks of the Greater Edible European Dormouse which is actually a bat-like mini-squirrel with an appetite for rafters.

    Kaveri and Eli kept the news of Tom’s accident until I was home from India. I had returned back to places I hadn’t visited since before Tom must have been doing A-levels and it has changed so much it is bewildering. My moment of truth came on one of the new fibre glass fishing craft provided by NGOs after the tsunami. These are what has replaced the 6 logs tied together which provided a perfectly adequate living before Boxing Day 2005. To stay afloat the boat, which looks like a very small punt, has two holes in the bottom – one to let the water in and one to let it out. We got completely soaked in any case from the water coming over the sides in a bit of an unsmooth sea. You had to stand and hang on for dear life to a rope attached to the front of the boat as it tossed on the big waves. The objective was to see off two delapidated trawlers which had encroached into shore water. This was completely unsuccessful and the crew returned with a pay off from the crew of the first trawler in the form of a pound of shrimps. I didn’t expect to end up doing something like that on this trip. But then, trips sometimes do not behave according to plans….

    Kaveri, Eli and I are all thinking of Tom, Ellen and the whole family. I think our best role at present is to support with things like tasty dishes so people who are travelling don’t have to cook.

    It is good to read the news of the progress each day – keep it up Tom! We hope there is a bed not too far from you but in a place with nice staff and new friends among the recovering patients where you can start the rehab.

    with love to you all, Barbara
