Australian Lefty on Politics, Governance, Science and Info Management


Posted by Dave Bath on 2009-04-07

Posting frequency has been down, and will be down for some time. My daughter, and others I care about, were in a nasty car crash Friday night.

All alive, but there’s a long haul for a couple of them.

My daughter, in particular, has very little feeling and movement in her right hand, and a totally useless wrist… which is going to be really hard with a toddler.

Let’s hope her youth helps nerves repair.

And do you know how hard it is to get across to a 2 year-old why his Mummy can’t hug him?

Big thanks to everyone in the Geelong Ambulance Service and the Geelong Base Hospital.

    Shit. I don’t know you from a bar of soap, but even so that’s rough. I hope it’s all right. Always really hard with little kids.

  5. Sorry to hear about the crash and aftermath. Wish all well.
