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.

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.
