Helen's babiesI've just received this email from Helen's mum Enid in Johannesburg. Praise God that Helen is now doing much better. The Lord answers prayer. Continue to remember Helen, her mum, the others involved in the accident and Kalene Mission Hospital in prayer...

Dear Chris

Just an update letting you know Helen's condition.  She remains in ICU in a stable condition having had surgery to her face yesterday and hip and pelvic surgery the day before.  She has many cuts and bruises but all these will heal.  She is much better today and is improving daily.  She is starting to get cheeky and bored so must be on the mend.  I would like to thank you all for your prayers and support.  It is only the prayers of the Lord's people that has brought her through. It was potentially life threatening but the hospital here is fantastic. 

At this stage she does not need any further surgery so we have a possible 5-6 week recovery period here before she would be fit enough to travel.  Give my regards to everyone. 

Much love Enid.

This email from Helen's sister Lorraine...

The hospital address is-
Milpark Hospital
9 Guild Road
Parktown West
PO Box 91155
Auckland Park 2006
South Africa

It is apparently one of the best private hospitals in Johannesburg, according to a South African colleague of mine.

Latest news is that Helen has had some of the lines taken out and is hoping to be out of intensive care in the next few days. She is making excellent progress but recovery will be slow. She had surgery on Monday to repair both broken hips and her pelvis and had some work done on her face to underpin the bones. She is sitting up in bed and feeling a bit better in herself.
