April 24 Progress

A day of continued improvement. Ellen was there most of the day. The night fevers are a challenge as they keep Tom awake and this provides lots of time for deep thought and analysis. He was tired today but still did the physiotherapy with full-on energy. He asked loads of questions about how things are going, met with Susanna and Oliver (who visited from Warwick) and spoke with David and with Gillian. Tom wanted to have his hair cut to keep cooler and Ellen reports he now has a No 1…quite short.

  1. Great to see you today bro. It meant so much. Loving the skinhead. haha…Priceless. Keep up the good work. Your rapid progress is an inspiration to us all. O. x

  2. hello to the t-dog

    im in nz being a hippy
    thinking of you man. thinking of you lots.
    it must be hard not to get impatient with the recovery process. the way i look at it: imagine if our bodies couldnt repair themselves!!- you’d cut yo finger in the kitchen and you’d bleed to death. that would be whack fo shizal nono??. so rejoice with me at the wonder of the human system, every second little things are happening and you just gotta wait untill the sum of these little things produce the big changes you want. aight peace to the veniceee

  4. Hey Tom, I got back from easter hols to a revision lecture (Amira was very boring, mentioned something about an FPGA a few times, said ‘Plees, pleees, pleas’, and then knocked on the desk til his hand hurt… so you’ve not missed anything!) and i heard about about your news. I’ve been reading the blogs that your family are putting up and am amazed at your determination and progress! (i also saw your cool glasses for watching videos and am well jealous!) The “guys with laptops in every lecture” send you their best, including Dan and myself, and we all hope to see you well soon mate. I’ll be reading your updates daily and praying for you my friend.

  5. Dear Tom

    We have been reading about your progress with great admiration. You are showing so much courage and determination and with a sense of humour. Keep up the hard work and good luck with the revision.

    We spent the weekend chopping down trees to make space in the garden only to be told off by Kate for worsening the greenhouse effect! We tried to suggest that the other trees would grow better and then use up more CO2 but I don’t think she was impressed.

    You, Ellen and all the family are in our thoughts and prayers.

    All our love
    Joy, Tony, Kate, Rose and Henry

  6. Skinhead ‘eh? I presume Els did it. She is turning in to quite the hairdresser/nurse. I finally got myself a job! can you believe it??? The place i am temping at asked me to stay and after careful consideration i decided to take it. Feels very odd to no longer be a complete skank. I am now an edittorial assistant for Shinymedia Fashion. Woooo. Going to see Jamie T this evening, exciting day all round.
    Saw posh Cam (!) last night and she sends her best wishes, she doesnt get much access to the internet. Lil Kirsten (american, polly pocket sized?) also sends lots of love. Feels like she should help you out after you carried her from the dodgy club. Woh long comment.
    Lots of love to both of you xx

  8. hi there, we dont know eachother, but as you can see from my profile I believe we may be distantly related!!! And I am a snowboarder, although not anymore due to an injury I sustained in 2004…I wish you all the best and a good recovery. Would love to find out someday if we have a family link……take care.

  9. so great to here the words direct from the horse’s mouth the other day Tom, brilliant news how you are getting on. not speedily enough for one of those high-achieving Nab-types, but you continue to put the rest of us to shame! Ellen and your family are such stars, fantastic that you are getting loved up as you so deserve, and that the team at the hospital are so on it too. Carry on with the hasty progress Tom, because we are impatient to come and see you!

  13. hello Tom

Have been reading all your blogs and am really glad to see that you are doing so well, it must be so hard but if anyone can do it it is you. You and Ellen were greatly missed this Easter it wasn’t the same without you guys, but you were both in all of our thoughts.
