I want to thank everyone for their kind words, thoughts and prayers.

My uncle is doing remarkably well, all things considered. He's been opening his eyes, and has even been able to move his arms and legs when asked several times. Considering he was in an induced coma last week at this time, it's amazing. He's still got a long way to go though, so he isn't out of the woods yet. We still have to wait and see, and hope for the best.

Thanks all!

It sure is a good news, Ronjohn!! I second GB, he definetely has the guts and strength, I have no doubt that he will come out a winner in the end, no matter how long it may take to accomplish it. Now try to bring a smile back on his face, and keep us updated!!
