    Hello there everyone.

    I just want to apologise for not being around too much over the last week, but we have had a rough week.

    Many of you may know that my son has been working and travelling in New Zealand and now Australia since November 2007.

    Last week he was involved in a serious road accident, and he has smashed his leg up pretty badly, he is in hospital in Perth, and has already had surgery on the leg (mainly the knee) twice.

    Now he is facing surgery again on Wednesday, and this time the Surgeons have told him that if the tissue and muscles are not viable then the leg will have to be amputated below the knee.

    The reason I am telling you this is, my son needs all the help he can get at the moment, so if there are any people out there who regularly pray, would they please remember my son in their prayers .

    He has no head or back injuries, so we should be grateful for that, and he can still cope with life with one good leg, but it is a shock and devestating news for us and him at the moment.

    My thanks to you all.

    Love and Best Wishes, Donnie X

    Donnie I'm so sorry to hear that!! It sounds horrendous and he must be in a terrible state, not only physically but psychologically too, never mind what all of you must be going through! I bet it's awful having this distance between you! Are you able to travel out there to see him? I was involved in an awful car crash in 2005 where the boy racer who went into me actually died and I was very very lucky to come out of it with just whiplash (painful!!) and a mangled knee, which luckily only needed a small op! (I won't go into the psychological side- that was harder to heal!!) I'll certainly pray for him, no problem and I hope lots of other people do too! There's strength in numbers!XXXXXXX

    How awful for you all, I don't pray. But I'm a great believer in fate & everything happening for a reason, even if it takes a while for the 'reason' to become apparent.

    I really do hope everything turns out ok, I'll be thinking of you on Wednesday.xxx

    No unfortunately I have Rheumatoid Arthritis and I am not fit or well enough to make such a long journey, but my husband is getting ready to travel to Australia, we are just waiting to see what will happen on Wednesday at the moment, and then take it from there.
