GETTING BETTER
This past Tuesday morning, my son, Phillip, was injured in an accident. Very touch and go in the early stages. With a machine breathing for him and a body temp in the low 90s, all his mom and I could do is pray and hope for the best. Thankfully, late that evening, he began breathing on his own. As I write this, he is begging to be allowed to sleep in his own bed at home, which the doctors say is a most positive sign. All other tests prove he is doing better and he should be home by Sunday. An incredible Father's Day gift a week late..................though I still love the watch I got! (My god, Mike, that's harrowing! I'm sure I speak on behalf of all of us here at CF/PCR when I pass along all our sincerist wishes for a speedy recovery! Thank God he wasn't hurt any worse. Tell him Uncle Nole is rooting for him. ---Nolan)
