    For those who know Sasha

    Things have turned from bad to worse, Sasha is at wits end emotionally
    and metally, The TAC have made her life a living hell and the doctors,
    although can help wont because the TAC wont approve anything.

    She had a op on last Monday that took 6 month to approve Rolling Eyes
    that has caused her left leg to be paralysed and the pain in her back
    increase 10 fold. She rang her Surgeon on Friday who said he cant do
    anything, he is going on Holidays... ring an ambo amd go to the local

    I called the ambo on Fri and made my way to her place which took me a
    hour only to find them all still there, on trying to leave the ambo
    had let Sasha fall in the wheel chair backward cracking her head on
    the ground. She was taken to the Alfred with a suspectted broken neck.
    Luckily this wasnt the case.

    She needs visits and phone calls please, she is a mess, so are the
    ones around her.

    Sasha is in the Alfred Hosp in Commercial Rd Melbourne (Sth Yarra)
    Ring 90763159 ask to be put through, patient no 1152554 or Xaviera
    (Sasha) Shannon or if visting see the front desk with the same.

    how about a "gathering" one night this week, say at the Stamford on
    Wellington and Stud road, someone buy one of those VERY BIG get well
    cards, and we all sign it.

    I know when I got fucked over the get well cards from the VFR group in
    Aust and world wide really were kewl...

    Pick a night - how about Tuesday and make it happen...

    PS. I dont know her or the full story, but I know what she is going

    If she is gettin a hard time over all this, call Mark Stenburg (the
    lawyer ) and have a word to him - he did my stuff,
    and helped lots.

    Is there an email address that we can use to send her a message from New
    Zealand ? I know what back pain is all about. Poor girl shouldnt have to
    go through such terrible unprofessional conduct from the bloody surgeon, or
    the ambulance fools. I'm glad her neck wasn't damaged. Tell her people in
    NZ send their best wishes.

    That really sucks, my commiserations, and I second the suggestions of
    engaging a lawyer.

    worst thing Geoff, its the private system!
    and TAC.

    she is in the Alfred ATM under the public system and being looked
    after billiantly, every neurological doctor in the place running tests
    left right and centre. she has had more attention from the public
    system in the last 3 days than she has from the TAC in the last 12
    months, The TAC just dont fucking care about people, its all about how
    much profit they can make and dont care if someone tops themself off
    in the process, this is perfereble because then that person is "off
    the books"


    you own a bus company, cant you send a Karma Bus around? :)

    sounds like as much as I hate to say it - time for Today Tonight or
    ACA or even if you can find a respectable show in the same light.

    I know the Opposition Health minister would love somethign like this
    for ammo...

    Thanks all for the well wishes

    Re the Lawyer

    she has one, the TAC have 100
    the TAC have lawyers bombarding them everyday and the TAC know how to
    deal with them.
    give the TAC guns and they would be another Gestapo

    it will take another 3-5 years to get to court, which we "will" be
    taking it to court.
    none of this taking a shithouse payout will a silence gag.

    I simply cant believe that an government organization can treat people
    the way the TAC does, no private company could

    maybe its time for private insurance companys to be allowed to compete
    for our 3rd party here in Vic

    And with good reason. If you have a problem, the opposition can only
    jump up and down and make a fuss.. the government can actually do
    something.. so if you're going to speak to anyone, speak to the
    government minister first. Make friends with the people in power, not

    Don't make the same stupid mistake that the MRAA executive made prior to
    the 2002 state election and align yourself with the opposition... as a
    direct result of that all Victorian motorcyclists have been paying a $50
    annual penalty.

    Was tryin to save him time.. the people in power dont or didnt at the
    time give a shit. :( maybe different with an election coming up..
    perfect time to make it known to both sides, news print, TV. etc

    it was over 4 yrs for them to make an offer to me which according to
    the barrister (which in hidsight, Im not sure about his "advice"), I
    should take, as they can drag it out for another 4+ yrs and I could
    have ended up with less.

    and to get the point out now
    every cent Sasha gets is for setting her up for the rest of "her"
    life, with or without me
