Sick List: Tom Bourke

Received this email from Ian Dunn in Victoria re Tom Bourke’s health

Comrades,

The last two times I visited Tom (Thursday night and tonight) he was very, very tired.  He is still in Ward 7 West (Bed 12) at the Austin Hospital, and says that he is spending a fair amount of time each day in his wheelchair.  But he seems very frustrated with the long stay in hospital, and with the lack of progress.

Tonight he was, for most of the short time I was there, too tired to speak.  But then he does not seem to be able to sleep either.

Let’s keep hoping that he improves again, soon.

Regards,

Ian
