Possum Bourne update - Tuesday


Possum Bourne update - Tuesday

Medical staff at Dunedin General Hospital remain comfortable that Possum Bourne's condition is where they would expect it to be at this stage of his treatment.

However, his condition does remain serious but stable and he will continue to remain in a drug induced coma.

Possum's sister, Kristine Game, said: "No-one should underestimate the challenge Possum faces, but he is fighting as hard as those that know him would expect him to. We are blown away by the level of support, and so will Possum be when he sees the response he has created, which is staggering.

"We are a strong family and we are going okay. It's tough but we're hanging in there and the extended family we have in the rally fraternity is also helping us greatly."

Goodwill messages continue to flood in at the Possum Bourne website via fax. Messages can be left at the website http://www.possumpwrc.co.nz on the message board, or faxed to 09 238 5737.
