Slugg rang me yesterday and asked me to write a thank you Blog for everyone that has wished him well in his ongoing recovery.
He would especially like to thank Parramatta Tragic, who has made many sacrifices in being with Slugg, whether visiting in person and dropping off chocolates and spending time with him personally. He also would like to say a special thank you to Snake who has provided a mountain of support with encouraging phone calls and jokes.
Just to update you Geoff (Sluggy) is still in Bowral Hospital and will be in there over Xmas and for a while yet.
When speaking to him early this week I can honestly say I didn't think he was going make it, he was down, in pain and just wanted to go to sleep. Geoff is not a religious man, never has been but he decided he would say a little prayer to his wife. He was encouraged so much that he started to feel a bit better, the will to live was reignited.
Further to that, one of the nurses when he told her of his prayer, decided to sit with him and offered another prayer, which further got Geoff to thinking positive thoughts.
Going into this Christmas i am sure we all know people that are ill or have been ill, we maybe should all stop for a second and think of them and if you are lucky enough not to have someone in such a position, then think of our Sluggy as he continues to fight the good fight!
So Merry Xmas from Sluggy and may you all have a safe and wonderful one, because Geoff is now saying a little prayer for everyone.
