Matt,

Great to see you back on the forum.

Have you been to the basement to see how they are heating the hospital ?????

Perhaps you could offer to convert them to coal to offset some of your medical expenses ?????

I'm sure you could find a boiler or series of boilers to switch them over to coal. :D :D :D :D :D :D :D


Again, great to see you posting. Take care and rest as much as you can.

Well after a one eyed night at the computer and it seems to have improved my typoing! :lol: :lol:

Well Jerry and Karen I will be back in operation this weekend but don't think I will dampen your sales! You go guys! :D

Freaked one of my bosses of at work tonight, he didn't even know about the surgery, returned a request for contact and explained where I was, he almost fell off his bar stool at the airport! :lol: :lol:

Thanks again everyone, still trying to read all the posts, appreciate the extended prayer circle and concern for my health, I know it helped. :dancing: :notworthy: :clap:

Calling it a night will be on again tomorrow. :out:

Finally got time to read all the thread and all of your wonderful supportive, funny, and heart felt posts. Thanks to all and yes I'm making a speedy recovery and even if it takes me 6 months to get my vision back completely I won't be a bit dissapointed since basically I have a whole new chance in life. :)

And yes Terry the pathologist came back shaking his head and asking the neurology dept how the heck this balck glassy stuff was allowed to taint his tumor samples! :lol: :lol:

I can honestly say that this was one of the better experiences in my life, it reminded me of the precious gift we are given and that even when things appear to not be going your way... trust me they are going the way they should. We all should cherish this brotherhood and remember that when it's all put in perspective we all have a choice to treat our fellow forum members with gratitude and respect or we can squabble fuss and fight over ultimately meaningless things that don't even come close to being important in the overall scheme of things. You have further helped to nurture a renewed effort on my part to be as grateful and respectful as I can be with my brothers and sisters on this forum.... Thank you!!!!!! :notworthy:
