Well between Dave's broken arms and my broken leg you can currently botch together one good rigger! Does anyone know if he's got anyone to read him his text messages? I've sent him a couple but I guess he probably can't read them without help at the moment.

Choccy's ordered for delivery!!

I think the Hospital staff are going to be given a demonstration of the skydiving community at its very best!

I suspect Dave is going to have an endless supply of sweet things turning up.

Thanks Matt :whistle:

Just spoken to Dave. Bless 'im he had someone else to hold the phone because his arms are in plaster. He seemed in good spirits and I told him everyone is worried about him and how people have posted on here with their well wishes. He says to mention that he can't even wipe his own bum lol :P ! He mentioned about being starving as he's going to theatre again later but he might get some toast after! As long as it's got chocolate spread on it he'll be fine! ;)

Keep smiling Dave!

Well, it can't be all that bad if he is off to the theatre again later.... I wonder if they have any good shows on :whistle:
I suppose it takes more than a "ka-kar" to bring the Gwar Jedi Rigger down.... hehe, heal fast Dave, Love you man!

Hi All,

Just spoken to Dave again. He can now feed himself!! But he has to get someone to cut his meals up for him! He's got some more surgery tomo on his left hand but is generally feeling 'ok' considering. You know how he is, good ol' chirpy Dave! He has received some nice choccies from Legs and a few other peeps and is happy he can now eat them himself!

He did say he needs some lovin' so all together now.......... :thumbs: :heart: :shock: :heart: http://www.ukskydive...tyle_emoticons/default/love.png :heart: http://www.ukskydive...tyle_emoticons/default/love.png :heart:

Went to see Dave tonight - he's just like Emma said (except he still can't wipe his own arse). He thanks everyone for their best wishes and sugary things, but make sure whatever you send him is small or can be broken up into small chunks. He can't use his mobile at the moment as the buttons are too small, but the phone number for the ward is right. He's looking forward to getting back home and resuming as normal life as possible as soon as possible. Typically positive for him - he says if he was going to have an accident, at least it came at the end of the holiday as he'd had a great time and can't wait to come back.

Another Dave update - he had an op on his left arm on Thursday and is waiting to find out how it's doing - hopefully Monday, and with luck he'll be out not long afterwards. He's a lot better than he was when a saw him a few days ago - sitting up and moving around the bed under his own steam, shouting abuse at the Olympics and entertaining his roommates with skydiving anecdotes. I think the nurses only put up with him because of the enormous stack of sweet food surrounding his bed. He's asked me to give a big thanks to everyone who's sent him stuff, given him a call and wished him all the best here or elsewhere.
