Not at all Cakes. Thank you for the words.

Thank you guys for all the positive thoughts.

It's been 10 days now since my world was turned upside down. Life is now full of machines and numbers and nurses and Neuro surgeons and in amongst it all is my sweet most precious lady.

Chantelle has been unconscious for nearly eleven days now. She has a serious brain injury which is being controlled in order that it doesn't get any worse...She is being sedated and paralysed, her body temperature is being kept at 33 C, she has a drain in her lung, is on a ventilator and has a dialysis machine keeping her blood acidity levels down....because of all this the doctors and nurses have been able to keep her alive and she is now in a "stable" condition.

We do not know the extent of her initial injury and will only be able to find this out when the doctors start to reduce the life support she is receiving.

Please keep sending those positive vibes dudes...prayers to your Gods and anything else you think that will help her.

Thanks dudes.

Hi guys. Once again thank you all for your good wishes.

Just a quick update: Chit is in a "stable" condition and has improved over the last few days...enough so, that they have removed the drain from her lung and taken her off dialysis. They discontinued the paralysing drugs yesterday and this morning have stopped the sedation.

She is not out of the woods by a long way and the next 48 hours will be crucial in understanding how much damage she sustained during the initial impact.

The positive vibes you've been sending are well received thank you again.

No worries at all dude.

It's been exactly three weeks now since the accident. Although Chantelle has still not regained consciousness she has improved vastly in her general medical condition...(she is now on no life support other than the ventilator which is only assisting her to breathe.

This is just as tough a time as when she was initially admitted as although she has weathered the initial trauma it now remains to be seen if she wakes up and indeed what is left if she does.

She responds to pain and opens her eyes when she is moved or is given physio not to command yet and there is no sentience as yet

I'm sure some of you know that I have a military background and although throughout the years since I left I've distanced myself from that ethos..and am now a pacifist. The mental strength I gained during operations has remained. I am strong for my lady and believe she will pull through...I can deal with anything as long as she wakes up.

Thank you all again for your good wishes and thoughts keep it going dudes. I reckon a dudely miracle is called for!  ;)

Peace and love dudes.

Caesar dude, continued positive vibes and thoughts go your way. Great to hear that your special lady, Chantelle, is doing better and is off life support except for breathing assistance. That is a move forward for sure!!  :)

Positive vibes have continued throughout your ordeal.  I'm headed to Lebowski Fest in 2 weeks and I will see if I can get a mass sending of vibes while I am there.
