Mick Bromfield, Mullumbimby
Owing to contracting an influenza B strain about three weeks ago, my recent trip to Bali did not go as expected. After being in Bali for a few days my breathing worsened to the point where I was placed in the ICU. After three days, I was medically evacuated out of Indonesia to Darwin. I spent several more days in ICU here before moving up to the ward and eventually after almost two weeks was allowed to go home to my beloved Mullum.
I would like to thank my family and friends for their amazing support during this ordeal. I would also like to extend a huge thankyou to Care Flight for the air ambulance and the dedicated and professional staff at the Royal Darwin Hospital and the ICU for their care and attention. Thank you one and all.
