    KiwiRay worked hard all his days and is now trying to enjoy retirement, but the toll taken on his knee required surgery recently, and as many of you know the healing process has not been going as well as it should. I believe it was last week that he had to go back under the knife to try and fix some issues related to infection and such.

    I haven't seen him back on the boards here since the reorganization that resulted from the Adsense pressure placed on Jeff, and although I doubt it is not because of that, I pray that his absence is not because the surgery did not go well.

    Let's all show him our support and friendship, and of course our solidarity as fellow truck drivers.

    Hopefully when he does get a chance to get back on here he will see how much we miss his presence and how much we are praying for a speedy and complete recovery.

    Is everyone with me?

    Kiwi is such a wonderful person and he's been through so much pain it just makes me sick, and it breaks my heart. He emails us when he can, and sometimes Linde does. I'm very grateful he has her, she loves him so much and I know she's taking good care of him. I really hope this additional surgery will help him (it's already been about a week), he's just been through too much,. Thanks to all for the love and support for our dear friend. <3

    Hi guys & Gals I just got home from hospital this afternoon & read what you have all posted, I truly appreciate all your thoughts, prayers & kindness I was close to tears reading them all, they have been pumping antibiotics which are real strong into me & the nausea is awful but they have to get rid of the infection, I have a temporary knee joint in for twelve weeks & after Xmas have to go back in & have it all done again that will be 4 bloody operations thankfully our hospitals are all free. From tomorrow on the district nurse comes everyday for 6 weeks in inject antibiotics into my pic line & if it becomes blocked I have to go back in to hospital which is not what I want, I hope this all sounds OK as I am quite spaced out on drugs.
    Once again thank you all from the bottom of my heart for your love & kindness it is truly all appreciated.

    Quite alright, I can relate. The hip replacement and the foot surgery from the late 1990's had me in similar straights. Just relax and let your body heal!

    You are very welcome my friend!

    You sound more coherent, all doped up, than some of us sober. Keep looking forward and get back on your feet.

    Well I got to spend 1 night at home the nurse came around to inject the antibiotic & the bloody pic line was blocked she panicked & sent me back to hospital, they worked on it for 12 minutes & away she flowed so I had to spend a very long night in hospital, the nurse is coming back today in the next hour or so I hope she gets it working this time I am sick &. Tired of being sick & going in to hospital.

    glad to hear you at least have been home a day or two, but not so happy you have to return to the hospital. you tell that nurse that if she don't straighten up, I'm putting the wife in a box, shipping her down there and let her snatch a knot in that nurses neck. That woman is hellloo on incompetent nurses. You keep hanging in there like a hair in a store bought biscuit. It'll get better. The biscuits never do, but you will.
