Who Healed Thom?

Recommended Posts

In Thom's article on WOT Wiki, it mentions that an Aes Sedai healed Thom following his encounter of the Fade at White Bridge.  Did I miss something?  I know later on when Thom and Moiraine are in Tear she does something to his knee healing it slightly, and says she wishes that a good healer had bene near when the wound had happened, but I've been through the series front to back too many times to count and haven't seen where this information came from.  Was it the BWB or the Companion?  The article mentions that his life was sacved by an Aes Sedai but the damage to his knee was too great to be fully healed.  If so, who was it, and how did it happen?  Did Thom flee down river?  He was gone from White Bridge when Lan and Co. passed through.

It says it in the companion, but nowhere in the book do I remember Thom mentioning it.  


The companion just says an Aes Sedai showed up in the nick of time.  Like Samitsu, she could regulate her weaves, so she was able to heal him enough to keep him alive.  No mention of the Aes Sedai's name.  He was probably still there when Moraine arrived, but was somewhere healing up.  The companion just says when he was finally able to travel again he made his way to Cairhien.  So it probably had to spend a little time regaining his strength.  Since Moriane wasn't that far behind Rand and Mat at Whitebridge, chances are Thom wasn't fit to travel yet.

    • Good trolling, Zander. Good trolling.   Though you do sound like what my nan used to lol
    • Because the aiel are standing around in loose formation with weapons that are poor at countering cavalry. 
    • Thanks everyone! And welcome Lessa--I'll consider it.
    • It should also be noted that unlike the investments by the Soviet Union in the Third World the Chinese have not particularly engaged or seen a need to supply military arms to friendly governments or entered into military alliances. The Chinese involvement is almost exclusively economic. It should also be noted that while the Chinese have in fact invested billions in the Third World much of their investments are at best problematic. They have essentially have had to write off 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 billion of investments in Cuba. Their deal with Venezuela for Oil is at best economicly doubtful.   Since 2008 China has also invested between 5 and 10 billion dollars in the Nickel, tin and copper industries of the Andes countries. At this time has actual production not gone up  but capacity has also remained rather stagnant. And let's not even mention the investment black hole that is Brazil, where the only thing that disappears quicker then international investments is accountable politicians.   Now I hope (for the sake of the people in Latin America) that the current wave of Chinese investments actually raise economic production and living standards but from the prior experiences of the British, French, Germans, Americans and Canadians I think that Chinese investments are even less likely to work out either for the Chinese investors or the people of the of the effected Latin American countries. I say this because nothing that the Chinese are doing or the other nations have done has changed the fundamental business culture in those countries. It's not so much that the economies in those countries work on crony capitalism but that their economic system actually resembles more a crony type of fuedalism with a dash of fascism thrown in. Until that fact changes the likelihood that conditions in those countries will substantially improve is in my opinion doubtful at best.
