OT: THANK YOU!!!

I've been meaning to post something in the "welfare" thread since I got home, but just haven't been able to figure out how to properly say all that I'm feeling. I figured this morning that I'd just blurt it all out in no particular order or understandable stream, but at least I'd have it said.

So, THANK YOU ALL so very much for all of the thoughts, prayers, cards, calls, wife servicing, etc. over the past several weeks. There's just no way to properly state how much it touched me and perked me up while in the hospital to read some of the threads that went on. I was able a few times while admitted to use the nurses laptop to get online and read the board, though I didn't feel strong enough to type any kind of a reply. Heck, I could barely read the posts and understand what I was reading. Morphine is such a wonderful thing!!!

Now to the truely humiliating part. I just can't believe how financially generous a lot of you folks have been. I've never been on this side of that particular fence, and I must say I don't like it at all. But I also can't say that we don't need the help either. So as Tom told me, I'll just shut up and say thank you over and over and over.
I thought I had a pretty rock-solid philosophy to live by with my "People Suck" belief, but you clowns have gone and ruined that for me.
I'm sorry, but the fact that you freaks have been so generous to somebody that you don't even know just blows my mind. Sure I've met a lot of you at the Bash or other gatherings, but I know from the other posts that there are a lot of you that have helped Kathy and I out that I have never, and probably will never, meet in person. I guess maybe there are a few decent people left in the world. Isn't it amazing that they all decided to get Jeeps and come to this board? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Well, I think I've said all that I intended to say in this post. I'm sure it's wandering and completely unreadable, but at least I finally got off my lazy arse, swallowed my pride, and said Thanks to all of you for your support through this terrible time in our lives. I've still got a long road to be back to the full strength PITA I was before, but I'm feeling a little better almost every day.

Again, THANK YOU ALL for the support. Oh, and thanks to everyone that called, posted, PM'd Kathy during this as well. That poor girl has been through a lot worse time than I have and it really meant a lot to me to know that so many were keeping in contact with her and helping to keep her spirits up as well.

I will never be able to repay this debt.

Re: OT: THANK YOU!!!

Glad to see you're 'well enough' to get on the keyboard Tater. Keep building your strength so I do not throw you into a relapse if I can (finally) get over your way next week (on my way home for Christmas). Looking forward to meeting you & 'The Pea'!

Re: OT: THANK YOU!!!

Ditto to everything Jim said. A special thanks to Tom,Dee,Jeff,Patty,Dale,Dave and Aaron for letting me ramble on the phone to them. It was pretty hard seeing my "right arm" laid up(shhh.. don't tell him i said that). Everyone on the board has been great. Please know that we would do the same for any one of you.

Re: OT: THANK YOU!!!

Hey there you skinny Fat Boy. Glad to hear you are doing better. You need to get your strength built up for Ground Hog's Day. I bet we can get you fattened up that day on chili and deep fried Twinkies.

Later,
Kelly
