Back home - finally. My many friends pulled me through this epic. I'll jot out a few hospital chronicles once it all comes back to me. For now, thanks for all your good will and support. That's a life saver, of that you may be sure.

Fact is, once I got some Lynnnnnnnnnny love I was restored.

It's tough to look manly in your hospital bed, but John (with big help from Lynn) sure manages here!

Great to see the spirit coming through.

Welcome back to the non-hospital world John.

Did you get a pair of Lynn's underwear for your next send!

Cant wait to hear your take on being stuck in one place so Long!

Great photo!

Was also in the hospital for over a month when I was 10 (double tib/fib compound-fracture, skin graft, etc).
I distinctly remember how great it felt to be out in the sun again, and to feel the breeze of fresh air.

Look forward to read more of your writing. Cheers!

Best wishes for a complete and speedy recovery. In the mean time, don't forget the handicapped plate for your mountain unicycle...

Wonderful how the body can heal.
Thoughts are with you, man.
Agree 15 days in hospital is a long time!
