Today my fantastic older brother, Alwyn, was injured in a very unlikely way
He’s a ski ( race ) instructor in his spare time and was hit in the left eye by a slalom race pole that rebounded at high speed.
His wife, Nadia, called me from the hospital in America, myself being the only family member working in the eye profession.
It sounded very serious to me, and shook me a lot. I can’t bear the thought of my family members being hurt now and I cried after I’d put the phone down – I just couldn’t help it.
He looks a mess and it’s far from certain whether he’ll be back to normal any time soon.
Thinking of you, Alwyn.
