This is the kind of news we love to share! We told you a day or so ago about the miraculous recovery Nelson cyclist Martin Versluys was making in this post. His come back has been astonishing considering he was flown out by Pegasus on Mother’s Day weekend after a car turned in front of him heading north on Route 151.

Friday morning we received word through a family friend via his wife Kathy they had made it home.

“Another whirlwind day. Even when he’s fresh out of ICU, I still can’t keep up with Martin. Had NO IDEA he’d be home today already. In fact, gotta admit to panicking a bit, since I didn’t know all those tubes and hoses could come off yet.

But Martin wanted nothing more—Let’s just go home. I’m ready to sleep after 12 days.
So with baby steps forward, we’re starting a new adventure. Speechless in our gratitude for all the support and friendship. Don’t know where to begin expressing thanks to everyone.

But it’s late again, so I’m going to follow Martin’s method: sleep! Tomorrow is a new day.
So love you all!

Martin still has weeks and weeks of rehab and recovery to go through as his injuries were major, but he’s certainly on the mend now and is home!

We’re told it’s way too soon for any visitors, but if you’d like to send Martin your thoughts and perhaps a card you can mail it here.

A YouCaring site has been set up for Martin by friends to help offset the expenses they are incurring while he’s down.

We will keep you updated on his progress as we receive word.

Great news Martin and keep on the mend!
