HOPE: “from darkness into the light.”

“You cannot compare two brain injuries, even if they’re similar – the outcome can be totally different. Two patients with similar conditions on a scan can have two totally different outcomes. Each patient is different and we treat them as an individual.”
– the words of Dr Ganesh Bavikatte, Consultant and Clinical Lead in Rehabilitation Medicine at The Walton Centre NHS Foundation Trust (UK)

Jules Bianchi could make an astonishing return to Formula One, a brain injury expert has suggested. SEE below#

By the way, I think it’s crazy (and irresponsible) even speculating about Jules racing again at this early stage, IF that statement by the specialist has been accurately reported (and hopefully qualified …or was that “the journalistic licence”)??

Our focus and thoughts should just be with Jules and his family simply getting though this very traumatic time

Keep fighting (like “Schumi”*), Jules. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

“Speaking exclusively to Mirror Online, Dr Ganesh Bavikatte, Consultant and Clinical Lead in Rehabilitation Medicine at The Walton Centre NHS Foundation Trust, says he would be cautiously optimistic of the Frenchman making a good recovery.

Without knowing specifics of Bianchi’s particular case Dr Bavikatte admits it is difficult to an accurate prognosis at such an early stage.

Indeed, with patients suffering from a diffuse axonal injury, the condition confirmed earlier on Tuesday by a statement from Bianchi’s family made via Marussia, it is almost impossible to know the extent of the injury after just 24 or 48 hours.”


Keep fighting (like “Schumi”), Jules. Our thoughts and prayers are with you

“The task ahead of you can always be overcome by the power within
you…and the often seemingly difficult or even “impassible”) path
ahead of you is never as steep with the great spirit that lies
within you.”

About craig lock

About the Author Craig has a 'passion' for writing books that tell stories about people doing positive things in this often so hard, sometimes unkind world, occasionally cruel, yet always amazing world - true stories that leave the reader feeling uplifted, empowered and hopefully even inspired. Craig Lock loves to encourage and empower people to be the best they can possibly be, and to create what they want in life. Craig has learnt plenty from the "school of life" (still "battered and bruised") and also from a few "hard knocks on the head". He is an extensive world traveller (on a "shoestring budget") and failed professional emigrater who has spent most of his life’s savings on airfares. He is still sliding down the razor blade of life on the beautiful undiscovered island that is New Zealand, somewhere near the bottom (rude!) of the world near Antarctica. There he talks to the 60 million sheep! Craig has been involved in the corporate world (life assurance) for "many moons". However, through a rather strange (and unique) set of circumstances and finding himself in a small town near the bottom of the world ...and with nothing else to do, he started writing. That was five years ago. Five published books later and having written another twenty manuscripts (now 300 + on widely differing subjects - well what else is there to do here?)... this is where Craig is in the "journey/adventure" that is life. Craig has run a run a successful creative writing course (not teaching sheep!) at the local Polytechnic. He was the author of (as far as we know) the first creative writing course on the internet. He has many varied interests and passions and is particularly interested in the field of psychology – studying the human mind and what makes different people "tick-tock grandfather clock". He is fascinated by the "overlap between psychology and the dimension of spirituality". One of his missions in life is helping people make the most of their hidden potential and so finding their niche in life... so that they are happy. Craig’s various books probably tell more about his rather "eventful" life best (no one could believe it!). He writes books with serious messages and themes, then as a contrast "rather crazy, wacky stuff"…to keep him sane here. As an ‘anonymouse’ person wrote: "All of us are born mad; some of us remain so." Well nothing else much happens in quiet provincial New Zealand, other than headlines like "Golf Ball Thrown at Policeman" and "Beach Toilet Closed for Season.". True! from http://www.selfgrowth.com/experts/craig_lock.html For Craig’s books see AMAZON at http://www.amazon.com/-/e/B005GGMAW4 ... but rather GO to www.creativekiwis.com ?? When the writer is no more, the value of your purchase will soar." www.johnsphotopics.wordpress.com www.craigsquotes.wordpress.com All proceeds go to the needy and underprivileged… and a charity (most worthy-Bill and I) “When the writer is no more , the value of your purchase will soar! “ “Together, one mind, one life (one small step at a time), let’s see how many people (and lives) we can encourage, impact, empower, enrich, uplift and perhaps even inspire to reach their fullest potentials…and strive for and perhaps one sunny day even achieve their wildest dreams.” PPS Don’t worry about the world ending today… as it’s already tomorrow in scenic and tranquil ‘little’ New Zealand
