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!
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.
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
I understand though that the love and care of the Dawkins/Kingdon family combo has essentially saved my lifeMy wife, Dani, I hear, has been a rock,(no surprises) Every man needs a rock of a wife I’ve concluded
My mum in law, Jenni, and S IN LAW, Melissa started this blog and somehow got 30000 hits. Sounds like a lot!
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
….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.
