Sick Parade.


If you know someone who is a bit crook,

let us know so we can give them a shout out..




Tony Harley


Tony Harley, Ex Radtech Air, seen here in the Austin Hospital (in Melbourne) on Saturday morning (17 March 2012) after having a CT scan to see what was causing his abdominal pains.


It turned out he had appendicitis, and as there was a long waiting list for operations at the Austin, he was transferred to Epworth Eastern at Box Hill and had his appendix removed at 6.00pm on the 18 March. We’re pleased to report he’s now fine.




Brian Taylor


Brian (Oxie), 9Sqn crewy, was admitted to the Brisbane Private Hospital on the 14th March to have both knees replaced. The operation, which was successfully carried out on the 15th March is called a Bilateral total knee replacements – and recovery is very painful.


The following was received from Brian’s wife Kathy on the 20th March, “Brian says thanks for all the news regarding members and the Caloundra event. We were sorry to have missed it. Brian's Op went off well. He was quite courageous to have two knee replacements done at once! He doesn't remember too much about the first two days! Today is Day 4. His blood count was low following the surgery so he needed a transfusion. The low oxygen level in his blood caused a bit of angina so they had to slow down the physio program but that is OK now. So tomorrow he expects exercise and walking to be full on. At present we think he will be in Brisbane Private Hospital for the rest of this week and possibly the weekend, then he hopes to be transferred to Eden Rehab Unit in Cooroy”.


Then a few days later:


“After a slow start (expected because he had both knees done together) he is now going well. He has been transferred from Brisbane to the Eden Rehab Unit in Cooroy and is doing full on physio and on mobile aids.”


We all wish you well Brian – and by now you will absolutely HATE those physio people……




Wally Jolley.

 Wally Jolley

We spoke with Wally a few days ago and we’re pleased to say that he reckons he’s feeling heaps better and all being well, will definitely be in Brisbane next April 25. He says he’s had the old Johnny Cash problem for quite a while, where food is taken in, recycled and then emitted as a mixture of molten lead and very course sand paper but he recently found that if he stayed off tomatoes, the recycled product tended to become more akin to a blancmange – much more easy to handle he reckons.


Glad to hear you’re feeling better mate, everyone wishes you well and the old Port Office just ain’t the same without you there telling porkies...




Wife by text to husband at work .........

"Windows at home is frozen - what should I do?"

Husband - "Spray some de-icer or pour hot water on them" 

Wife a few minutes later - "Done that - now computer won't work at all"!
