Mushroom poisoning: Ian Wilkinson released from hospital after Leongatha lunch
Ian Wilkinson has been released from hospital after spending weeks recovering from a poisonous mushroom lunch that claimed the lives of three others including his wife.
The 68-year-old’s family confirmed on Saturday he was now making ‘significant progress’ at home after being discharged from the Austin Hospital in Melbourne.
Pastor Wilkinson was the only person to survive the poisonous beef wellington dished up on July 29 by stay-at-home mum Erin Patterson in Leongatha, Victoria.
Mr Wilkinson, his wife Heather and her sister Gail and husband Don Patterson had been invited over for lunch as part of a ‘mediation’ gathering to discuss Ms Patterson’s relationship with her estranged husband Simon, who pulled out at the last minute.

The Pattersons and Ms Wilkinson died days later.
Daily Mail Australia revealed last month Mr Wilkinson only likely survived because he was rushed to a hospital known for its expertise in treating patients suffering from poisonings.
