As of Tuesday 26 July 2016:

Update on Allen Rugless who is currently in St George Hospital. He has been moved into an Intensive Care Ward. Suffering from Influenza virus A and pneumonia. His condition at this time is the same has made no improvement so neither stepped forward or back. Is getting the right treatment so lets hope he continues to battle on.

Some good news people, just got information that Allen Rugless is on the mend he is 100% from what he was from admission to the hospital. Lyn says that the improvement from last night to today is remarkable. He has most of the machines taken off him is giving cheek to the nursing staff this morning. Lets hope he continues to improve but it looks at this time that he is over the rough part of it. I asked if he is able to have visitors and she said he can but only two at a time. So there you go people latest update on the little bloke.

Retired Detective Chief Inspector John Hutchings update

Geoff Talbot called into Gosford Hospital this morning ( Wednesday 27 July 2016 ) and spent some time with Johns wife Verna who has been at his bedside for just on 2 weeks. Today is day 13 since John consumed any food and is mostly in a state of unconsciousness. His family and close friends are regular visitors being support for his wife. I mentioned the comments here on FB and Verna asked me to thank those members who have John in their thoughts and prayers.

 

If you know John or Verna and you are in the Gosford area – you may wish to visit and offer your support.

May John forever Rest In Peace.

aka  Phil

New South Wales Police Force

Regd. # ?

Rank:  Detective Sergeant

Stations?, St Marys

ServiceFrom  to  ?

Awards:  National Medal – granted 28 May 1999

National Police Service Medal – granted ?

Illness:   Cancer

 

So close to Christmas it’s heartbreaking to hear that one of our police family’s is doing it tough.

Detective Sergeant Phil Buchardt, a sworn NSW Police Force Officer from St Mary’s Local Area Command was diagnosed earlier this year with an advanced and aggressive throat cancer. An operation attempting to remove some of the cancer caused damage to Phil’s tongue affecting his speech, breathing and ability to eat solid food. Phil’s doctors recently advised that the cancer is persisting and may not be operable.

Phil has been in the force for 33 years and was recently awarded the National Police Service Medal in addition to previous service medals. Phil, his wife Carol, who is also a serving NSW Police Force Officer and their 6 year old daughter Shelby are desperately feeling the strain of Phil’s condition and the financial burden of ongoing medical expenses. But Phil has great mates at St Mary’s LAC. They approached us and wanted to start fundraising to help Phil and his family.

So we’re asking you to help out. All donations will go directly to Phil, NSW Police Legacy will not take any of the funds raised through this appeal. At this time of year especially, Christmas, when it should be all about spending times with loved ones and rejoicing in our good health and happiness, please send some love to Phil and his family and donate.

A man – who from the very foundation, of the Gold Coast Branch – continually dedicated himself to the problems of others as a member of our ‘Welfare Support Team’ for many, many, years – now finds himself experiencing personal difficulties.

I speak of ‘Foundation Member’ Bob WILSON. A more compassionate and caring human being would indeed be truly difficult to find. Bob volunteered to be a Welfare Officer at that very first (inaugural) meeting and continued in that role over very many years until recently.

This man has devoted many, many hours of his own time, to help others in need for no reason, save his endearing capacity for compassion. He has – though no longer a member of our Welfare Team – continued to ‘pop in’ and visit members incapacitated for a variety of problems at Nursing Homes and other venues.

Bob is experiencing some fairly significant problems with his heart and lungs and has been hospitalized on several occasions. He recently advised me that he and dear wife Irene are shortly heading to Sydney to consult a specialist Professor – we wish them all the very best and truly hope that a solution is found for his problems.

Esteemed ‘Foundation Member’ of the Gold Coast RPA, Arthur JONES:

Following major and traumatic throat surgery for the removal of a tumour, Arthur continues in the face of adversity to display all of the audacious courage and commitment that we have come to expect from him. Arthur is a man who – regardless of the perilous circumstances in which he finds himself – oozes confidence together with a truly wonderful and infectious sense of humour. Arthur ultimately came home, after an extended period in ‘Intensive Care’ following his surgery,
only to be rendered further in need of hospitalization, just a few days later. His very dear wife Valma informed me just last week that he is now once again back home and receiving treatment which will hopefully enable him to actually eat food again.
