Hi Folks,

I'm still kicking... more details soon! Thanks for all the support and kindness. Sorry to those I haven't been able to answer or respond to. I am truly not ignoring anyone and treasure all the phone calls, texts, cards and letters, posts and emails and I personally read every one of them.

I was back in the hospital this week but I am out again and heading to physical therapy in an hour. I've had lots of improvements and a few set backs, but that's just life in general right?

My wife Linda has been amazing through all of this as have many family members and friends. One old friend just made an amazing gesture of support that would have shocked me even more if it had been someone else but he is well known to nearly all of you and our entire music community and what he has done has made a major difference in this struggle. (More about this soon). I can't say it strongly enough, you learn who your real friends are when you're lying flat on your back and they reach out a hand to lift you up.

I hope to get a newsletter out soon with more details as well as some helpful info for all of you concerning health care, support and needs amongst our community.

Thanks again to you all!

Brian

Hi Brian,

Good to see you posting here. Good to see you posting anywhere! It's never a smooth ride but hoepfully the bumps will subside in the near future. We are a lot stronger than we know.

Hi Brian! Cindy and I are happy that you are making some progress! Even as you say, there are setbacks. Just any progress is a good sign. Your typing is getting better! So, that is another good sign! smile It was getting hard to read!!! Ha! You only missed a couple of commas this time. LOL

I am not working yet, or playing in the band, so my email offer stands of course. Take advantage. I even have a portable blowup bed ready.

Thinking of you and Linda,
Cindy and John

Or perhaps out but not down about it? = )

I've been telling my wife that I must be at least a little bit zombie now since I did, like a zombie, come back to life. Hmmmm.... do I smell BRAINS? = )

Heya Brian,

How good it is to hear that your recovery continues. Yes, life is precious, and no tomorrow is ever guaranteed.

There is no way to overstate the positive affect you've had on my life since we met in person back in DC. Major changes, none of them bad, many of them started by the echo of your words, your brutal honesty, and unquestionable passion and integrity.

Whatever small successes I've been finding, creatively, can be traced to their origins at JPF. For that, and many other things, all I can say is Thank You.

Blessings

Midnite

That's awfully nice of you to say Bob. My "Brutal Honesty" is not easy to offer and comes with great risk, but I feel like if I respect and care about the person I am offering it to, I owe them to be honest. Politically correct speak (not just politics, but all things in life) does more damage to people than brutal honesty ever could. But it takes an even "bigger man" to hear and accept and most importantly act on that information. Few people ever do it. You have only yourself to credit for that!

Brian

Just Plain Quotes
"A lot of people will tell you that preparation is what will make you successful. But I think that people misunderstand exactly what that means sometimes. The type of preparation you need most is the kind that allows you to instantly seize an opportunity, change your course based on a momentary circumstance, and grab hold of the totally unexpected when it happens, and allow it to take you for the ride of your life! That is the kind of preparation that can lead to the most enjoyable type of success." -Brian Austin Whitney
