From Bob and Dianne Dawkins xxx

Dear All,
Bob and I are flying down to Marseilles on Tuesday, the earliest flight available to us, so that we can be with Russell until the weekend when Dani will return from the UK. We feel that it is very important that a member of his immediate family is with him whilst he remains in ICU.
 
Russell’s  terrible injuries followed by a cardiac arrest during surgery left us shocked  and desperate. In the beginning, we didn’t know whether he would make it. . Russell has survived and  his survival is due to the highest standard of nursing care from a totally dedicated staff. We cannot thank them enough..  In addition, Russell,s  family are overwhelmed  by the number of friends who have  taken the time to visit him. Their love and concern has filled us with gratitude.  As his mother and father we want to thank each and everyone of you from the bottom of our hearts. Your love for Russell  has meant everything to Russ and to us .
 
We cannot wait to be with Russell again.
 
Thank you to everyone who has been there for  him.   
 

Dianne and Bob

  2. Dear Russ, Dani, Lily and Amber,
    Hopefully this message will get to you – we’ve been trying to send it for a while now but I’m afraid we Othen’s are quite technically challenged!
    This blog has been a great way for us back here in Wales to keep up to date with Russ’s recovery and obviously we’ve been in constant touch with Stu since we heard the terrible news about the accident.
    Our thoughts and prayers are with you all and we can’t wait for Russ to be back home in the UK so that we can come up and see you all in person.
    Sending you all big Welsh hugs and happy birthday wishes to Lily for Friday.
    Take care and keep up with your brave recovery Russ.
    Love from cousin Del, Jo, Ross and Lara xxxxx

    PS Del said thank God he didn’t collide with a sheep – he’d never have lived it down!
