Grouse

Postby DouglasH » Sat Feb 19, 2005 9:22 pm

It is with great sadness that I have to convey to you the unfortunate news, that one of our active members Gordon Davies (Grouse) was taken into hospital on Thursday with a brain haemorrhage and will be having an operation in the next few days.
Gordon's wife Pauline has asked me to let everyone know why Grouse, temporarily we hope, will not be posting on the forum for a while.
Please like me, keep Gordon and Pauline in your thoughts and prayers in the days to come.
Thank you.

That is very upsetting news. Gordon is a great guy and the first person I was introduced to through this forum. We would have met up here in Dundee next week before we headed off on the Crieff run. He was a former neighbour of mine although I didn't know it at the time!

I was to design a new web site for his business in the next few weeks, knowing his enthusiam for anything and everything that will be put on the back burner for only a very short while.

Pauline if you read this pass on my regards to the old guy and we'll see you soon.

Pauline

Thinking of you both - will miss your company in Holland - we were looking forward to seeing Gordon in the new kilt but will have to wait for another time.

I spoke to Pauline tonight, Gordon has come out of the Coma he was in after
the operation and although is still confused he is now recognising Pauline
and his family, there is a long way to go and Pauline has been advised that
he will have to attend Rehab for six months.
