Russ you asked me repeatedly to return all of the money. What do you even care? Get over yourself nobody wants to hump your leg or anything else for that matter...

Merry Christmas Coz!

I care because I think it would be swell if the good people who donated were shown the proof (that you offered to show) that their money reached its final destination.

Roy: as of yesterdays report, the op was longer than anticipated, involved a muscle graft as well as skin, was pretty complicated, and went well.

Thanks Russ,

We're all upset about John, get off Krista back, and do something constructive to help your friend.

Visited John yesterday in the hospital. He was just coming off his last surgery and was very happy to be done with a long series of procedures. We talked for about an hour and his spirits are good, considering all he has been through. He is getting great care by some of the best in the business at a modern and wonderful hospital. He says the prognosis is that he will heal up completely with time.

He will be in the hospital for a while longer, as much as two weeks. His leg is elevated by a pulley system. I helped a nurse adjust the contraption holding up his leg and was able to make myself useful by tying a secure double bowline to hold the counterweights. John and I joked to the nurse about the importance of deferring to an expert like myself to make sure that nothing could possibly go wrong with the knot. :)

That subject alone should have been good for three threads and 1,000 posts.

So what happened to the Largo post indicating the funds raised will go towards his daughters travel expenses and "incidentals" ?

Don't forget to order "three cups of tea" ...

In response to the post above, John told me that Krista had delivered the money to him and he asked me to thank everyone who contributed.

I was wondering what the purpose of that thing was myself, but my mind didn't go there until Locker chimed in.

It's a tent that pushes hot air around his leg and keeps the flap warm. Good circulation is crucial at this point so the flap takes. They test it every hour and listen for the pulse through the graft to check. I'm sure he'd rather it be a blow up doll though... BTW Ricks knot was great, but I couldn't stop thinking of horrible jokes either...
