Howzit peeps,

Skippie (Pieter) had a serious accident yesterday and is in critical condition in Unitas ICU with severe spinal injuries.

I don't have any details on the accident, but please keep Skippie, his wife and two kids in your prayers.

See ER24 blog: blog.er24.co.za/2012/04/motorcyclist-injured-in-pretoria-crash/

I am on my way to the hospital and will keep this thread updated.

This is very sad to hear. Hope he recovers quickly. Will keep him and his family in our thoughts.

When I was at the hospital his wife said that he was awake, speaking and able to move his arms around a bit (as much as could be expected). I spoke to the radiologist by chance (an old school friend) and he indiacted that Skippie had a very very long road to recovery and it was too soon to speculate whether he would be able to walk again.

I'll let this thread run a bit and print out as S&F indicated and get a copy to him to read by Friday or so.

Once he is in general ward I'll organise a mass visit from the clan one evening.

In the meantime, please keep Skippie and his family in your prayers.

Skippie, jy is ons gebede vir 'n volkome herstel. Vasbyt boeta, vasbyt!

Jammer om van jou te√ęspoed te hoor, Skippie! Alle sterkte en voorspoed met jou herstel.
