Andy told me the operation to replace the piece of skull was a success and Carl is now able to propel himself in his wheelchair with his good foot.
Carl is currently in Dusseldorf but will be moved back to Krefeld this week.
He enjoys playing football during physio which is a really good sign and he has even managed to leave the hospital for a day out with a visit to a cafe for a capuchino and cake... another big step for Carl and a good indication that he is doing well.
As of yet there hasn't been a date set for him to return home, but Andy is going back out to Germany this Saturday (14th) and should hopefully have more news on Carl's return.
