SO MANY PEOPLE TO THANK
We would like to say thank you to everyone who helped Kaiden and our family over the past few weeks following Kaiden’s motor vehicle accident.
Firstly, we want to say the biggest thank you to Matt (the off-duty ambulance officer who was on his way to go fishing but never got out to the reef that day) who was first to stop at the scene and help Kaiden.
Your immediate actions won’t be forgotten, Matt, and we thank you so much.
Also, thank you to Jimmy the off-duty radiologist who stopped and also assisted Kaiden. We know we are so fortunate to have people like you living in our community.
Thank you to the ambulance, fire and police officers as well as medical personnel at Mossman, Cairns Base and Townsville Hospitals for their wonderful care. Also a big thank to our immediate families, the Sorensen and Blain families, for all your help with looking after everything for us, especially Kaiden’s brothers Keel and Raine while we were away.
Thank you to all of Kaiden’s and our family’s friends and relatives for their calls, messages, visits and emails sending well wishes, gifts and prayers. Also thank you to Kaiden’s JCU classmates, Prices Plus workmates, Douglas Muddies cricket clubmates and Cricket Far North committee and clubs and many others in our community for all your well wishes and prayers at this time.
Kaiden has broken his jaw in three places on which he has had surgery and is having follow-up appointments in Townsville.
He will need further extensive repair work to his teeth. He has a fracture to his right leg and foot, which is in plaster, and he is on crutches. He is thankfully now home and on the steady road to recovery.
With assistance with travel from his uni friends from Mossman he is hoping to return to Uni at JCU Cairns at the end of the month. Thank you again everyone.
Lee & Sue Sorensen, Bonnie Doon.
