Matty's in the hospital.
« on: August 20, 2007, 12:29:46 AM »
I got a text from Matty tonight telling me that he's in the hospital. From what I can gather someone (plural, perhaps?) physically assaulted him. I'm not at all sure what happened, and all he's told me is that his arm's been broken. He was able to text me so hopefully that's the worst of it. He asked that I post a thread and let everyone know what happened. Please let him know that you're thinking about him.

I'll let you guys know more as I find out more, but hopefully everything'll be alright.

You are right indeed little one, the damned one got jumped by some gay bashers up his way and had his arm broken.
He needs surgery and is being tranferred to a Sydney hospital.
All is not lost though, as MtD is morph'd off his little head at the moment.

Hope all goes well, Matty

Shit, that's rough. >:( When people say why do we need gay pride anymore - this is why.  As long as a-holes think they can just beat someone up because they're gay, we need to be reminded the fight isn't over.

All went much better than we could have hoped.

At around midnight on Sunday Matty the Damned (who was a touch boozy -- let's not deny it) was jumped by three thugs at a train station as he waited to catch the 12:15 service back to Boolaboolabonbong. Apparently these brave fellows objected to his queerness.

I was king-hit (ie from behind) and as I went down one of them aimed a sharp kick at my upper arm neatly fracturing my humerus. The pain was unbelievable but I managed to get up and hide in the lavs until they left.

I boarded my train and went home. When I awoke this morning it was clear that I had been seriously injured and I called an ambulance, was pumped full of fentanyl and taken to the hospital. I was scheduled for surgery  but it was determined my injury could be dealt with by setting my arm in a hanging slab cast.

So I'm home and very stoned (lots of morphia) and still in considerable pain. I'll be wearing this thing for at least six weeks. It's my right arm thats buggered, but it will heal fully. My participation here may be somewhat reduced as I can only type with my left hand atm.

I want to tell you all that I'm deeply touched by your kind thoughts and words. This thread makes me feel much better. Honestly, it's better than the drugs. :)

I'm especially grateful to my Little Man for posting this. I love you very much Baby-Boi. Fret not, your Matty is gonna be fine. Also to Little Steve who texted me and rang me when I was in the hospital. Knowing that my Aussie Sister is there for me makes all the difference. Thanks to to Goderator Jan for texting me as well.

I'm actually still quite rattled by the attack. Those stupid young men could quite easily have killed me with their wanton and vicious act. I'm certain they don't realise just how foolish they have been.

Brothers and Sisters, you'll forgive me if I sign off now. I need some rest, but should be around tomorrow.

There's a pervert in Australia who loves each of you deeply.

I just had a long conversation with the damned one on Skype. A little sore, a little groggy, but upbeat considering what he went through. I think the big ol' mo is going to be okay...he's already worried about not being able to groom his ginger tresses left handed. The other thing he can't do with his right hand will not be discussed in polite company. It was good to hear his voice (Matty has a very sexy Australian accent) and know that my dear friend is okay. Jaser, he told me to tell you not to worry and he will chat with you soon.

Dear Mattala...I'm relieved to know you will be OK...I am deeply saddened that such an awful thing has happened to you, I hope your recovery is swift.  You are such a decent soul to say these young men probably don't even realize they committed such a horrible and vicious act, I hope they are caught and punished.

Take care and get well soon!!!

All went much better than we could have hoped.

At around midnight on Sunday Matty the Damned (who was a touch boozy -- let's not deny it) was jumped by three thugs at a train station as he waited to catch the 12:15 service back to Boolaboolabonbong. Apparently these brave fellows objected to his queerness.

I was king-hit (ie from behind) and as I went down one of them aimed a sharp kick at my upper arm neatly fracturing my humerus. The pain was unbelievable but I managed to get up and hide in the lavs until they left.

I boarded my train and went home. When I awoke this morning it was clear that I had been seriously injured and I called an ambulance, was pumped full of fentanyl and taken to the hospital. I was scheduled for surgery  but it was determined my injury could be dealt with by setting my arm in a hanging slab cast.

So I'm home and very stoned (lots of morphia) and still in considerable pain. I'll be wearing this thing for at least six weeks. It's my right arm thats buggered, but it will heal fully. My participation here may be somewhat reduced as I can only type with my left hand atm.

I want to tell you all that I'm deeply touched by your kind thoughts and words. This thread makes me feel much better. Honestly, it's better than the drugs. :)

I'm especially grateful to my Little Man for posting this. I love you very much Baby-Boi. Fret not, your Matty is gonna be fine. Also to Little Steve who texted me and rang me when I was in the hospital. Knowing that my Aussie Sister is there for me makes all the difference. Thanks to to Goderator Jan for texting me as well.

I'm actually still quite rattled by the attack. Those stupid young men could quite easily have killed me with their wanton and vicious act. I'm certain they don't realise just how foolish they have been.

Brothers and Sisters, you'll forgive me if I sign off now. I need some rest, but should be around tomorrow.

There's a pervert in Australia who loves each of you deeply.

Matty the Damned.

Well, I was waiting to hear the news straight from the Kangaroo's mouth ; )  

Matty, I'm real sorry to hear what you've been through, but I know your a fiesty guy and will be up and about in no time.   If it makes you feel any better I go in for wisdom teeth removal today and will be popping the pain killers like m & m's and thinking about ya!

Hang in there mate!

Matty,
Take care an I am thinking of you. This is the type of senseless thing that just makes life even more difficult than it needs to be.
I am just overwhelmed, but happy that you will be ok. Yet sorry that you have to deal with this unneccessary pain. Hate is such a horrible thing.

Matty, what a nightmare experience! It's not surprising that you're shaken by it. Just going about living your life and suddenly just how vulnerable we are gets slammed right at you.

I'd like to see those thugs nabbed but I wonder if that's going to be possible. Such hatred and evil is sickening.

Most importantly, hope you mend well and completely. It's certainly encouraging to have gotten your left handed report directly from you.

Wishing you the best recovery both physically and spiritually,
