Ah, man, I only spent three nights in the hospital on my deal. I could not imagine 30+ days. Yowza!

You're a tough guy, Largo, keep it together in the home stretch. And then do your damndest to stay out of the place!

Merry Christmas to all of you who lavished such Love and concern on me during the dog days early on. And an especially Merry Christmas to those who might find themselves alone today.

"I'll be home for Christmas,
If only in my dreams."

And that's no a problem as I've always believed in dreaming.

Thank you everyone for keeping me in your thoughts and prayers.

Hospitals are not healthy places to be. Get well soon.

hey there say, RickA...

as to this:
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. :)

nice to see some humor here, ;)

John,
Glad to see you are getting better. I remember the time I spent in the hospital after I broke my back and how sweet it was when I finally escaped.
Hope that happens soon for you. Merry Christmas! Cheers to you Rick for being there for your buddy...

Hi John,

I know a lot about being alone at Christmas having lost my husband 14 years ago.

That doesn't compare to what you're going through, it's hard enough to be injured, especially difficult during the holidays.

I'm sure it will come through this with flying colors and probably have a greater appreciation for the good health that you've enjoyed until now.

With good thoughts for your speedy recovery, I wish you all the best from balmy Florida.

Merry Christmas, Largo. Looks like you are getting a leg up on the new year....

Hopefully someone showed their friendship by bringing in some xmas day goodies and a nice meal!

And maybe is saving some video of you early on which is going to go sort of like this one:

Continuing to pray for you and remembering you in the incredible positive thoughts arena.

Sometime's hailing in the New Year has extra significance. Yours will be special I'm sure.

"I'll be home for Christmas, ..."


We're with you John, because home is where the heart is. And from what I can tell, your heart is in an awful lot of places. Bring in the new year with some new light...

Aloha!

Visited John on Christmas day and he is rapidly improving, flirting with some nurses, conversing in Spanish with others. However he has to stay in the hospital for another week so the healing of the skin graft on his shin can be monitored. He does pullups on the trapeze thing above his head and his arms are still like young tree trunks. He is looking good, but "ho man," he had a lot of work on that leg.

I am back in Colorado so won't be seeing him in the next few days. I encourage those of you in So Cal to visit him at UCLA hospital over the end of the year and into the New Year.

John is unconquerable, but a month in the hospital is the essence of type III fun: not fun while doing it and even less fun in retrospect.

Let's hear some New Year's greetings and wishes for John.

Visited with John again the other night. He was doing great. Pain and discomfot are the early and constant companions of the healing. But the Dude abides! John's spirit is bigger than the myth. We jaw jacked for a few hours and I left him with some very tasty pastries as requested!
