This week I had another round of scans and a meeting with my care team at the Alfred and got some good news. I've been given the all clear to return to work soon.

I want to share some good news with you. My vertebra has almost fully healed and my ribs are well on track. The team taking care of me has given me the all clear to get back to work soon. To Cath, the kids and the doctors, nurses, ambos and physios who've taken care of me – I can't thank you enough. While I've been recovering the state has been in great hands. I am so grateful to James Merlino for stepping in to lead the Government and the state — he's done an amazing job. On Monday 28 June I'll be back to work – and back to getting things done. I can't wait. Posted by Dan Andrews on Saturday, June 12, 2021
Mr Andrews thanked his wife Catherine and their three children for their love and support, as well as paramedics and staff at The Alfred hospital, where he was hospitalised after the serious fall on March 9.
He also thanked members of the public for their well wishes during his recovery.
“(The) tens of thousands of them who have sent me cards and notes and letters, your kindness and your concern is in some ways the best medicine and I can’t thank you enough,” he said.
More to come.
