Now for details!
A week ago, Saturday night Dave received a call at about 9:30 pm. It was the Zone Leaders in Nausori. They had just been hit by a drunk driver. Luckily, no injuries. When Elder Willis saw the drunk driver coming straight at him he swerved out so that the car hit him in the back corner of the truck rather than the driver's door. The Lord protects his missionaries.
The story doesn't end there. When the tow truck came to tow the truck away he punctured the front tire.
He tried to remove one of the other tires to replace the punctured tire but couldn't get it off so he just dropped the truck back on the ground doing even more damage to the truck. To top it off the cop and the drunk driver were in Kahootz and the cop didn't even give the drunk a citation. I guess our service center legal people will have to take over from here. Good luck with that one!
The other two accidents were caused by Elders driving where they shouldn't have been under rainy conditions. One high centered the his truck and the other slid off the road. Both needing to be towed out.
Two other elders lost their phone on the bus AGAIN!
|Back to Surgery|
Two days later the infection and pain were much worse. The one and Only Orthopedic Surgeon was not available the night of the injury so the first surgery was done by a General surgeon who did not know what he was doing, leaving his knee in quite the mess. The Orthopedic Surgeon returned so we fired the general surgeon and got the Orthopedic surgeon on the case. Back to surgery he went to clean out all the infection, a bone fragment left behind in the first surgery and a scraping of the bone to clear away any infection that may invade the bone. The surgery went well. Hopefully he is on the road to recovery.
