Five years on

Five years

Five years ago today, David was knocked off his bike by a lorry — at Hubertus. He miraculously survived, had a total of eight operations, as many weeks in hospital, one year on crutches, fourteen months off work, and three years in regular physiotherapy, …

He is totally back to normal now, thanks to the care of numerous doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, his wonderful wife and family, and our purring cats! Walking is more or less normal, with a slight handicap of the bad left leg causing him to trip and fall (if he is not careful). The last big fall was over a year and a half ago, and led to replaced glasses and a nose operation. Only small gripe is that the insurance has still not paid out all that is owed (after five years and two lawyers)…

But, who cares, it’s great to be alive and David is proud to see his sons making their way in life and Jacqueline close to a successful end of her Bachelor studies at the ZHAW!
