The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - SUNDAY SPORT -

FORMER col­league and ex-Daily Mir­ror sports­writer John “Gus” Blanch is well on the way to re­cov­ery from a near-death ex­pe­ri­ence. Gus spent al­most six months in hospi­tal after be­ing op­er­ated on for a golden staph spinal in­fec­tion.

He spent a month in in­ten­sive care, then another five months in the spinal re­hab unit at Prince of Wales Hospi­tal in Rand­wick.

He was trans­ferred a fort­night ago to a re­hab fa­cil­ity nearby and has reached the stage of re­cov­ery where he has pro­gressed from a wheel­chair to a walk­ing frame.
