The road ahead ...


Ronin has improved a lot today. He took an assisted walk for fifty metres - and his colour looks beter. I have been informed that he is nowhere near out of the woods as yet - tonight he needed yet another blood transfusion - but nevertheless, we are very optimistic. We even had a chance to feed him some of Melissa's famous chicken broth today - sure beats that hospital food! He will be in hospital for about another month - according to the staff's 'best guess' - then it will be home for much rehab. We are up for it though - and it will be a team effort. Thanks again everyone, for your deep concern and much, much, much appreciated support. And a special thanks to Perry Bateson in Canada - who organised the featured pic.
Warmest wishes
JBW

That is very promising news, John. Hope that there are no more set backs! Ronin is very lucky to have such a positive and focused Dad!

Hi John,
You dont know me but I went to high school with Ronin and was in the same class as him for the entire 6 years. We also knew eachother well when we were young as his mum and mine were good friends. Unfortunately for me, I was his guinea pig for quite some time when we were alot younger of all the martial arts he was learning from his dad! I havent seen ronin for about 4 yrs as I have been in Warrnambool studying but I am back in Geelong now and heard about this tragedy along the grapevine. Can you please tell Ronin that I am thinking of him and wish for him to have a complete and successful recovery. I have been thinking about him (and the family) alot since finding out the young man in the paper was him and want him to know I am thinking of him.

Thank you very much!

Hi John,

You don't know me but it feels like I know you and your friends and family through your Rogue Black Belt books.

I pray and wish your son, Ronin,a full and speedy recovery.

Hi John,
I am so glad to hear that Ronin is stretching his legs. My thoughts are with him and all of you down there by side. I wish I could see him and pass on my love and wishes to him. Could you please let him know that he is such a wonderful person, and I can't wait to see him when I come down to Melbourne! It has been too long. Much love,
Cousin Ellie xoxoxoxoox
