It goes to show, you can't keep a good man down. We hope to see you on the road (and in the veld) soon.

Linda Gail Desmet posted to Andrew Desmet Support Group
Morning everyone. Andrew came home yesterday afternoon. He is so happy to be in his own home and back in the bush. He is still in a lot of pain but is very brave. Thanks once again for all the love, concern and support.


Posted this morning on the facebook group linked to earlier here. I also read there (last week) Andrew will still need another op to his hip.
