Tom suffered a severe infection last week whilst we were in the Morova Lagoon area of the Solomon Islands. Following initial assessment in Gizo Hospital and input from doctors overseas we have left Adina and flown to Brisbane, Australia, for him to have some further tests and checks. Unfortunately there are concerns that the infection may have affected his heart.
Tom himself continues to get better by the day and seems largely normal again, though he is still tired and needing a lot of rest. He will have tests at the end of this week and we hope to have initial results early next week. We’ll be in a better position then to understand what needs to happen next.
We have been very fortunate in being helped by family, friends and new friends facilitating getting Adina to safety, us to Brisbane and treatment lined up for Tom – we are very thankful. Thank you also to everybody for their continued support.
Fingers crossed all will be well. Tom is already talking about visiting Papua New Guinea!
