Message from Tom:
I have been busy over the last couple of weeks recovering stamina and strength and trying to keep up my nutritional balance. There has been intense planning on lots of people’s parts to realise this trip to Switzerland and we are almost there. We leave tomorrow at 1 p.m. for a 14 hour journey to Nyon for a eight day holiday at paleo Festival. I have met lots of interesting people this week one of whom is in a similar position to me (c4 complete, is no movement below shoulders) but 26 years on he was teaching me lots of ingenious but simple techniques for achieving seemingly impossible tasks. I met another patient who was a 16 year old boy with a C5 complete injury who was being extremely brave.
PS We arrived safely in Nyon, Switzerland, at 7am Tuesday 22nd July and were listening to the bands at the Paleo festival by 8pm. We returned in the evening July 29th after a great week.
