Great news btw. Let's pray for regular improvement.



Agreed! This is a great example of the power of positive social media. Take care, Andrew!

Thanks DB for keeping us updated. Have been in Kruger for the last couple of weeks and thought of you often Andrew and was thankful for you and others like you who work so hard to preserve the environment and the creatures that live there. Hang in there: you are so needed - by family, friends and the people that love the Kruger park.

There is a lovely photo of Andrew with his wife and girls and mom and dad, in his bed, out in the hospital courtyard, taken yesterday to celebrate his mom's birthday, on the facebook page. :dance: :dance:
