    Howdy!
    Just a short note to let everybody know I am still among est the living. :D
    I am doing fairly good and should be home by the end of the month. :thumb:
    That is the good side.The down side is I lost the use of my right arm and hand.This of course will make modeling a lot harder since I will be doing every thing with my left hand.I will be going to therapy twice a week.Also my voice will come and go due to having tubes and such placed in my throat.
    Now,I would like to thank everybody for the cards and prayers. A big thank you goes to Val for the phone call and keeping everybody updated..
    Now I am at my daughters house and will be going back to the extended care facility later today.

    good-looking physical therapist, they say it helps a lot :D :D

    your posts when you're back in the saddle :) :) :thumb:

    Let me add my well wishes, and hope your recovery efforts will allow you to some computer time. Just tell your therapists that working on a computer keyboard is great therapy, working with trains is even better..:D:D:D:D

    We all missed you here, so do what they tell you to do so we can see more of you quicker. :thumb::thumb:

    Larry, it's fine to hear from you again! :thumb:

    As it seems, you still have quite a distance to go, and I wish you every bit of strength and endurance you need for going this way. My best wishes for a complete and quick recovery!

    Don't worry Brakie, Us that are left handed have had to get used to it all our lives!! And still find stuff made for right handers frustrating!! :curse: :p

    Good to see you back on the road, and I'm sure you'll do well in your recovery. :) :wave:

    Larry,

    It was great to read your e-mail message, and to know that you are again "sitting up, and taking nourishment". I will keep you in my prayers, and I hope that the PT will help you regain the use of your right hand and arm once again.

    God bless....

    Best to you on recovery... take it slow if it's needed...
    they had to teach me to walk after my spinal surgery.
    Most happy that you got family to help.
    Read, plan, and rest... You'll be right as rain soon.
