Last evening I became aware that Colin had suffered a stroke and was taken to Maharaj Nakorn Chiang Mai Hospital - Sripat Building (thats the large building at the front) 9th Floor Stroke Unit (out of the lift turn left) - Direct line 053 936 671

Visiting time closes at 19:00

I visited Colin this afternoon and was able to talk with him. He was able to respond to my conversation and understood many things I spoke about. He smiled & grimaced when I spoke about hospital staff, the prospect of hospital food & asking where he parked his bike. But sadly Colin is only currently able to partially respond.

Colin appears to have lost the right side due to the stroke. Colin's brother in the UK is in touch with the hospital.

Apart from that, I have no wish to add further information here.

Let us hope Colin is able to pull through this and be up on his feet again as soon as possible.

Ally,

Do you have any update on Colin? I was going down to the hospital this morning, but given the red light by the Bat out of hell and her mates as with my recent complictions etc.... Say no more, will tell Colin when I see him when he has been discharged. Was his op a success or I guess unknown yet.

We've been posting updates to Facebook.

We're seeing improvements every day, but a long way to go still - his speech has improved to an understandable (with difficulty) level.

I'll pass on your message Muzz. There was no operation done possibly because it took days to locate his insurance papers. The hospital would not operate without them.

Hell no - the coffees are on me. We've even convinced Colin to drink them.

Thanks for the info about Colin. I became worried when his ride reports suddenly ceased and half imagined he'd been a victim of some mad Thai driver. I never considered a stroke. I wrote to him a few days ago asking if he was ok but (of course) didn't get a reply which made me even more concerned. A stroke is not ideal but it sounds like he's making a slow recovery.

(Colin and I live in the same part of the UK and he's been to visit my place in Kanchanaburi several times. Last summer we met up for a coffee at the BMW bike dealer in Guildford - free coffee!)

Get well soon, Colin!

Sleeping this morning when a couple of us took in some more supplies. I'll smuggle in some more French Fries and Onion Rings in a little while. Bad as that sounds, the nurses were most appreciative, because we finally got him eating.

Good to hear Colin is back to eating (albeit I suspect his usual wierd diet!). Please keep the updates coming on here as I don't have Facebook. It's good to know Colin has friends to visit and help him out. Please convey my best wishes for a speedy recovery.

I will pass them on for you.

Deere just got back from supporting 8 Czech riders over the last 12 days. First thing he said (after "yes" to a beer) was "Go see Colin". We're on our way there now.

Others are updating the Ulysses Club Thailand post on Colin too. Sorry for those who don't do FB... but if anyone has time to do cut and pastes, feel free

I had my friends in Kanchanaburi phone the hospital this morning and they report that Colin is doing fine and he should be leaving hospital soon. That's good news. Unfortunately the hospital wouldn't discuss details of his stroke but that's fairly understandable.
