We all are Audrey we all are holding out for a miracle, and I'm not going to let this tribe forget our brother who is fighting for his life whether we know him or not.

Big thoughts n prayers for,Charlie and his family.

All of the sentiments shared here are amazing... Thank you to all willing to let their "guard" down....

Kath, Ian's family, and the many many friends who have been able to experience the beauty of this wonderful man first hand... much respect to you, for so many many reasons. This thread restores my faith in the amazing folks here on the Taco, and this thread deserves, and than some, to be at the top... now... and always.

~peace, positive energy, and the reminder to live IN THE MOMENT, and with kindness.

Thanks Nita for the quick link...it's almost at the goal, but that will only scratch the surface considering all the care he's had and will need. It should be easy to meet the goal and then add on to it.

It's a really straight forward process to give....

Ian, I have had the same feelings as the past year I broke my neck and back in a fall. I'm in severe pain and people don't understand since I don't have any visible signs of anything wrong with me. Prior to this I had announced to people that I was beginning training to do the Eiger. Most everyday now someone asks me how my training is going. Since I own a climbing gym I feel embarrassed to say that everyday and sometimes several times. Next comes the big question - "Well then, when do you expect to go?"
I have not been allowed to try to climb and everyday I walk into the gym and get a knot in my stomach. I've been climbing now for 45 years (I'm 54 years old) and climbing has been my whole life since the age of 10.
I am still hopeful to climb again. I'm having a tough time finding a surgeon around my city that I can trust to keep from screwing things worse.
You keep fighting as I am also. We both have just one real problem - We can't do what ware genetically made to do. - Climb
The Bible says that after Jesus returns from Heaven with a shout we who are dead will be raised. After this happens lets you and I find the time to climb something together.

Last night Ian's wife Michelle spent quite a while reading the super-topo thread to Ian/Charlie. She could tell at times that he knew what she was talking about. She said he smiled and nodded a few times and it looked like it make him happy. Thank you all.
