    WOW, what in the world can I say? This is the first time I have had the strength to read the computer and the dear, dear posts here. Between tears, I have to thank you from the bottom of my heart for your unyielding support of the most beautiful person in the world, Maura. She has been through more than a spouse should be asked to go through. I didn't know until I read this thread how sick I have been. There is no way I can thank all of you, all of you true friends, for the thoughts and prayers for both Maura and me. I am in my right mind (as right as it gets) and have to say that I am so overwhelmed by you're thoughts, prayers and friendship. I really can't type any longer through these tears, but thank you friends. You are more than friends, you are family. Thank you, Thank you, thank you from the very bottom of my heart. I have often said it, but I am the luckiest man in the world to have Maura as a partner and you guys as family to look after her when I couldn't. I'm completely and utterly overwhelmed - thank you.

    Glad to have you back! And yes, when folks on here want to make you feel wanted they sure do it well. When I got member of the month I had the same reaction. It's so refreshing to have friends that care about you. You and Maura are nice people...glad to have you up and around to where you felt up to posting. Keep getting better....

    Great to see you're improving so fast, I expect to hear you're having walker races in the halls real soon.

    Yay, Big Foot is back!!!!! Of course we have Maura's back. You and she would do the same. So glad that you are feeling more yourself. PLEASE, don't give her a lot of grief when she tries to care for you, you would want to do the same for her. Now be a good patient and get some rest. We will be here for you when you are up to it.

    Hey, I have managed to quite crying long enough to respond to your post. Walker? That is SOOO last week. Haven't had PT over the weekend, so I talked the sweet nurses into letting me walk up and down the hall without a walker today. Made 6 or 7 laps and walked that beautiful woman, Maura, to the elevator. Who knows, may do another lap or two before bed tonight. When PT begins again tomorrow, we are going to practice stairs because I have a couple of flights of stairs to get up to our apartment. I don't want to go home before it's time, but I don't want physical weakness to be the reason I can't go.

    Besides, I have lots of orchids to help take care of. Thank you Martha

    I honestly didn't know how bad a boy I have been. I don't remember any of that stuff like taking my tube and respirator out along with my IV's and all. Maura tells me I kept saying that she was in the hospital in another city and my friend I was going to see about her! I may not be the best patient in the world, but man, I never thought I could be that bad either. I appreciate these kind nurses, the care they give and the special people they are.

    I will never give Maura a hard time, I appreciate her being there more than I can say. You are also right in that it isn't anything I wouldn't do for her. I believes she knows this too.

    Thank you for all that you have done and been for us.

    Phillip
