I wanted to say thanks again to all of you guys for your thoughtfulness and prayers recently. I'm definitely better, but still in the hospital. I'm having the 6th surgical procedure of this adventure tomorrow (they're placing a feeding tube directly into my intestine) and then they anticipate kicking me loose in the next 7 days or so, assuming everything goes OK.
A lot of you guys have PM'd me or otherwise reached out privately with gestures and some of you have even contacted my wife directly to ask how you could help. Gotta say, that meant the world to us, and I'm really uplifted by that kind of camaraderie. Thanks. It sucks to be sick and away from your wife and little ones, but it does knock some of the sting off when you have people around you who treat you like a friend when you most need it.
