I am posting this update because I know that most of Lodie’s friends have no way of getting in touch with him and would like to know how he is doing. After his release from the day hospital in Pretoria, he wanted to return to his home at all cost. It soon became clear that he needed constant care and therefore was admitted to a care facility in his hometown, Naboomspruit, on 11 December 2014. As soon as he becomes stronger, he would like to return home again. He will start with physiotherapy on Monday, 15 December. His doctors are trying to manage his pain, and Lodie is still positive.
Thank you once again for all the messages of support, and the prayers for Lodie.
It is greatly appreciated.
