Good to hear from you, Mike. Keep talking to us. Keep talking to those other people, too. Some need it more and sometimes it's all you can do.

Also keep listening, preventing starvation, and the rehab, etc. etc.

Thanks Andy. I just realized, i never really updated my condition! I'm walking a lot better now. I'm using my crutches like walking sticks for short distances and i'm feeling really good. I've been playing a lot of ball, and my goal for the week is the up the walking quotient. I want to hike the chief again soon so i need to get my endurance up.

Hey Relic or someone, can I get a couch or a floor for next
Monday night? I will bring wine.

Neebee, if you need to send something here for Anders,I can get it to him.

Mike, it looks like you will be picking that high-hanging fruit again in no time.

Peace Out and Live Upfull!

Good to read your progress report and that you are getting out and enjoying life. My brother was on crutches for a Slayer concert, pretty interesting. Crowds tend not to notice the crips. Even if they are eight feet tall.

Big Mike is 8 feet Tall!?!???
I knew he was big, but Ho Man!
Hehehe. Vibes, Big Mike. BIG Vibes. I'm stoked. I got an egret from the wondrous NeeBee today. It's WAY more beautiful in the Real.
Mike needs Tunes....hmmm. Here's one.(Sorry, I don't NAS).


That's about as hippy hoppy as I get.

Hey Mike ! ! !

Perfect weather outside for your last day at G F Strong. This is a milestone from when you were initially at VGH. I'm happy for you that your recovery continues with good progress and you now get to be home.

Heck ya it is Jim! I've been so busy lately!! Hopefully things will start to settle down a bit soon and my transition goes well. Sandra has way too much on her plate and i need to start carrying my portion of the load.

Hopefully i should be able to finish up some of my extra tasks soon, and file a progress report here.

It was great to see you the other night btw!!

Hey Mike, I didn't get a chance to say bye to your buddy Kale. His story was very moving. Please give him my regards and tell him to look me up if he ever gets down this way.

I know you are glad to leave GFS, but I also realize how bitter-sweet the experience has been and will be. GFS is impressive in their conduct as I personally witnessed. Truly a blessing. Now get back to work.

I bet you set some records for fastest recovery! I know there's more recovery to go but getting released so quickly is a good sign. I bet your core muscles are stronger than when you went in!
