Press Release 20/06/09
“Chris Knox remains in a stable condition in Auckland hospital. This morning he is communicating with hand signs and the occasional word. He is generally in a good mood & enjoys the company of his family and friends.
“Chris is learning new ways of communicating and shows interest in the world around him. He also drew a cartoon likeness of himself. The other Tall Dwarf, Alec Bathgate, is here today and we watched ‘Miles Davis at Isle of Wight’ with Chris.
“We are due to have a meeting with doctors in the next few days to have Chris’ condition more fully explained to us and to get a clearer picture of the way forward. However, to me, as lay person, he seems to be improving daily.
“We’d again like to express our gratitude to all the people that have helped out and to those who have sent cards and have posted comments on the blog – you’ve been a source of great comfort to Barbara, Liesha and John and we read the new entries to Chris each day. We’ve also had a huge stream of visitors to the hospital who we’d like to thank for their patience & kindness.”
