Thanks to the amazing work by the staff at Aintree Hospital, we now have Royce back on home soil to start the rehab process in Adelaide.
PIC: Even after the tediously long flight, Royce and Beth had a smile after landing back in SA
We’d like to thank everyone for their well wishes over the whole period and the continued support through Royce’s recovery.
Catching up with Royce over a Nippy’s juice and frog cake, he said, “Home sweet home! The last few weeks spent in Liverpool I was pretty ready to go home.
“Beth and I were both getting a bit homesick, but the nurses were doing a great job keeping our spirits up and so were the messages from home.
PIC: An honourary red
“The day trip out to Liverpool city was freezing! But was great to get out for a cheeky Guinness and a wonderful feed.
“The physio work I’ve done in the hospital has brought me to my feet and slowly hobbling around now, but still lots to go to get my muscle back.
PIC: The rehab is well underway
“Plenty of Maccas and fatty foods will be had to try and aid in my plight to put back on the 20kg I lost.
“I just want to say thank you to everyone that sent messages or spoke to my family to pass on well wishes, I really appreciated it all and it gave me that little extra encouragement to work hard and get home.
“Cheers everyone, it will take a bit more than this to keep me down!”
PIC: Seeya later, Aintree!
