All--Thank you so much for the kind words, thoughts and prayers. Suzanne was GREATLY moved by the outpouring of love and prayer from all of you. Some of you she knows, most she doesnt. To her, some are names on an email, an invoice, or a shipping label. But certainly, all are friends and family.
Reading some of these last night, she cried tears of joy realizing that none of us are alone, that we all have friends---maybe not in the sense of neighbors, but friends that are part of a tremendous community. Doug and Susie--thank you.

Some of you knew the situation. You know who you are. And without going into details, some of you that are in the medical profession gave some really great advise as to what questions to ask of our Drs. For that, we are grateful, because even though we have a really awesome medical team, they ARE under some constraints set by guidelines and insurance companies. So figuring out ways to get the data was 'unique', but where there is a will, there is a way.

Still a ways to go, but we can see some things changing for the better.

Thanks to all of you.

Default Sending thoughts and prayers

We have never met or even talked. Your message was heartfelt and I have seen the anxiety families go through being a doctor and delivering the messages from the other side. Your wife's perseverance is awesome and your support is essential. I have worked with Steve, who has been awesome, helping design that "custom package" for the RV10. Much appreciated. You have my thoughts and prayers for you, your wife and family.

Default Prayers

Tom and Suzanne,
Prayers for a speedy recovery!
It always amazes me that when I feel good, I can do anything! (mostly) but when I feel thoughts go to God, family, friends and chicken soup!
Wishing you both the best and hope the healing continues!

Tom, I deal with patients on a daily basis that have to deal with the "news" that they now have a fight on their hands. It's never easy on either side but you two have risen to the occasion and met it head on. Speaking with you about my projects, I would have never known what you guys were going through. Thank you for the support on my plane and if you ever need support on your end, never hesitate to call.

Tom & Suzanne,

The most powerful medicine I can offer is prayers and lots of them. My family will be praying for yours. Get well soon and God bless!
