Really saddens me when I read these things. Not only for the poor guy but the trauma to his family, the not knowing and then if when what the longer term prognosis may be.
The Pingu household has done far too much praying for speedy recoveries of late, with our own family and friends, something needs changing for cyclists. Our thoughts will be with his family and friends along with our hopes for a speedy and complete recovery,Posted 8 years ago
Really sorry to hear about this.

Some positive news today….
“Gus is no longer in intensive care, and is breathing completely naturally now. Most encouragingly, he has recently had some periods of consciousness when he has been able to speak and respond to questions. His other injuries appear to be making good progress. He continues to sleep a lot or falls back into semi-consciousness, and tires quickly.”Posted 8 years ago

Positive new indeed.Posted 8 years ago
Earlier today the driver who hit Gus was sentenced to 16 weeks imprisonment and banned from driving for 5 years. The magistrates described it as the worst case they had ever encountered. The sentence was the longest they could give, and it sounded as if they wished they could make it longer.Posted 8 years ago
