    Thank you my friend, thank you indeed. I enjoyed reading Maura's MOTM interview and related comments.

    If anyone doubts that this is one big family, just ask and I'll tell you just how much so it is.

    Again, before I sign off for the night, I want to give everyone a heartfelt thanks you. There have been many posts that have brought tears to my eyes, both for your kindness to Maura and to me as well. Hopefully I am on the right track now and will be able to go home soon. I've been here 2.5 weeks and even though I can't tell how long it's been, I am ready to go home and spend a nice peaceful Christmas together. Y'all will be very high on our gratitude lists as you already are.

    All my love,

    Phillip C

I may not be the best patient in the world, but man, I never thought I could be that bad either.
    Phillip - you actually scored points by your extreme devotion to Maura even while you were in about as bad shape as anyone could imagine!! Good intentions, right?!

    Patty, I'm not sure about scoring points, but yes, I am very, highly, devoted to Maura. Thank you Patty.

    I can tell that you two are very devoted to each other. It is wonderful to see in this day and age. That is why you must go slow and recover fully. A pair like you two cannot be allowed to be torn apart. You guys are what restore my faith in marriage.

    Seriously though, Phillip. It is so good to hear that you are on the right road now. So nice to see you back on the forum. Now, no more scares like that.

    Thanks, everyone, for so warmly welcoming Phillip back to life on the forum and elsewhere. He called me this morning and is talking about being release today - to home - if he can just make himself climb 2 flights of stairs when his PT therapist gets there! He hasn't done any at all yet, but the drs. have signed off on his health - yay! I told him climbing 2 flights when you've only walked corridors for a couple of days is a big jump. I am SO hoping that after all his hard work, the end result is the right one - at the right time. I'm nervous that things are starting to move a little too fast. I want him home healthy and strong - and to be able to stay that way.
