As asked by many of the concerned rec.windsurfing community, I am
forwarding along a note
that I received from Margaret Nold of MNOP, regarding Olaf's progress.
We are lucky to still have him with us......keep sending positive
thoughts his way.
I forwarded all of the wonderful e-mails their kind friends have sent to
the NG and to me......
> Well, once again, we're blown away by your thoughtfulness and articulate
> internet postings concerning Olaf's accident. Gracias and thanks again.
> We went in for his first check-up on the 24th, and the x-rays show all is
> staying in line, he just needs to keep still too keep it all healing. He's
> swimming (kicking with a flutter board) almost the length of the beach and
> back, and doing long walks with no mishap. Everytime he gets grouchy about
> wearing that neck brace, I threaten to strap it on his ass...
> We'll keep you posted on Olaf's recovery.
> Much big hugs and best wishes. Bruce says hi too,
