Hi all

I have just received a call from Marco telling me that they have rushed Andrew (millepora/Eco-Aquatics) to hospital. Apparently he was doing some work at Sibaya Casino and fell onto something causing a huge deep gash in his arm, sounds pretty bad, blood all over the casino apparently. Just thought I would let you all know.

Let's hope he doesn't lose any functions in his arm, I don't know if it's that bad, will update you if I hear more.

Sheees, thanks for all the well wishes. :)
My arm is throbbing like hell right now :goofy: but I should be fine. Yip I got 18 stitches, 10 internal and 8 external. It was a deep gash and managed to cut the mussel and some veins, the blood squirted half way across the room. Luckily Marco was with me. After recovering from his shock (ha ha, he was freaking more than me) he was a real star, rushed me to Umhlanga Hospital and sorted out all my stuff for me. When I looked at him I realised he was covered in my blood as well, he even went back and finished the job we were doing and cleaned up all the blood on the floor and all over the equipment. Shot bru!!! The best part was watching them burn all the veins closed to stop the bleeding. :slayer:
