Thanks to you guys who lifted me out of my car; to you lovely women, including Robin, who stood in the rain, shielding me with your umbrellas, while you were getting wet; to the doctor, John, who stopped by to assist; to lovely student nurse Gen who even came to Lismore Base to visit me afterwards; to the ambo officers; to all the doctors and nurses at Lismore Base: thank you all for your care.
