Still Alive Russ Dawkins

Aug 2nd 2013 London Bridge Hostpital 23.12


The pic shows me with big teeth and a gingery tache. Things are bad, but not that bad!

Where do I start?

My name’s Russ Dawkins and until June 14th 2013 everybody who knew me knew me as a pretty physical guy, never missing exercise for a single day.
Now, today, this iPhone weighs a tonne.

  1. I can’t remember anything at all pre crash for maybe 2 weeks? I’ve looked in my diary, to no avail, for prompts, but all blank.. Forgive me too if these posts are short

  2. I understand though that the love and care of the Dawkins/Kingdon family combo has essentially saved my life
    My wife, Dani, I hear, has been a rock,(no surprises)  Every man needs a rock of a wife I’ve concluded
  3. My mum in law, Jenni, and S IN LAW, Melissa started this blog and somehow got 30000 hits. Sounds like a lot!
  4. Now I’m back in a London hospital on a ventilator still, with a trachetomy so unable to speak above a whisper. I’ve lost the use of everything below the navel, tho I don’t know if that’s just how it will be from now on.
    What I can say though is that I’ve packed so much into the last 46 yrs though
  5. ….that I’m pretty satisfied with my lot.
    I’ve got the 2 most exquisitely beautiful daughters, both real personalities too, that living life thro them will be a delight.
