Derek brought Colin out to the Doi Saket Temple Coffee Shop today.
Colin was able to walk, with his stick, from the car to his seat.
He had a coffee and a meal and a long chat, during which he was talking about riding, a possible future bike purchase
and long term plans.
He is making steady progress since his unfortunate 'stroke' some 15 months ago.
He even got to sit on his beloved Honda Wave!! (y)

Derek and I visited Colin at McKean yesterday and shared a long chat.
Colin is speaking well now. He is also talking about his future riding plans!!

His right arm and hand are slowly becoming more mobile and gaining strength.
His Rehab nurse has told him that she can also see improvement there.

Attached pics show the improved flexibility.

Deep in conversation

I visited Colin again today the 24th as I do every Thursday. The staff say they are all proud of Colin for sticking with the regime. I took Colin for a walk, probably just under 1km. I did rake a video but this site tells me mp4 files are not allowed.

Facebook videos can also be embedded - subject to the FB settings of the original poster. That's why it wouldn't embed.

He is progressing well.
His speech is clear and lucid.
His memory is sharp (I tested him with some music trivia questions and he passed impressively!)
He needs continuing physical therapy, which he is doing.

Last night was Krusty riders one year anniversary party to which I invited Colin as a reason to get him out of his room for a few minutes. It took some persuading but he agreed on the basis that I would return him even if it was just after a few minutes. He soon got to enjoy himself after meeting many more people that he knew than he expected. The very tasty and FREE buffet convinced him to stay a bit longer. 3 hours later I took him back. It was a good night for all but I suspect more so for Colin.

The photos were the right way up on my computer!

Nice gesture Derek.
Glad Colin enjoyed the outing and seeing friends.
That deserved a beer or two.

I wasnt trying to send it from FB. Direct from my hard drive.

Not a chance - having just paid yet another $750 storage bill, I understand why no forum administrator/owners I know allow direct storage of videos. Link to Youtube or Vimeo, as per the instructions in "Help". We're doing another forum software update at the moment and I'll spring for an additional add-in for those who have rotational issues.

Derek and I visited Colin at McKean today.
He is walking short distances unassisted and seems to be making gradual and noticeable progress.
His right hand now has some feeling and strength in it.
Hang in there Colin. (y)

Excellent. I haven't been in for quite some time due to the Covid paranoia - but will endeavour to see him soon. We're riding one of his routes tomorrow... should be fun
