Our patient Paulo got to meet a hero today - Australia's first and only Timorese-Australian AFL player Lin Jong. Footballs, autographs and a traditional Timorese scarf were exchanged. Paulo got a lesson in football Aussie style and also gave Lin some practice with a round ball. A massive thanks to Lin and everyone at Western Bulldogs and AFL for giving Paulo an experience he'll never forget. Following his heart procedure a fortnight ago, Paulo returns home to East Timor next week, with some precious memories.
