Every Monday, I visit one of my school mates from Grade 1 in hospital. Last September, he fell off his roof trying to do some maintenance on his house. He lives out in the country and he had to be flown by helicopter into Brisbane in the Princess Alexandra Hospital. First he was in the Intensive Care Unit for a few weeks and now he is in the Spinal Ward waiting for the day when he can sit in a wheel chair.
Normally I wait at the traffic lights to cross the street outside the hospital, but today I climbed the stairs to the overpass, mainly so I could walk in the shade as the temperature outside was well over 30ºC.
