Dr.Eric, Just in case you get to login one more time I wanted you to know that we will all be thinking good thoughts and saying many prayers for you in the coming days. Hurry back. We will miss your words of wisdom and the stories that only you can tell.
In our hearts,
>:D< >:D<


  • You are and will be in my thoughts and prayers. Let the surgeon do his work, trust he will be guided and know it will be the way it is supposed to be.

  • Good Luck Dr. Eric! I hope everything goes flawlessly for you and that your pain levels will be low and tolerable. You have been a joy to have here on the board and I hope to "see" you back online soon sharing the story of your (positive) experience.

    May God bless you and keep you.

    with love,

  • I heard from him in the wee hours of this morning. I will be getting updates from time to time from his daughter and will post them here. I have encouraged him to come here and read how many of those here are wishing him well. He seems to need the comfort of knowing that people are here supporting him and cheering him on. I promised him that we all are. Please keep the posts coming. For those reading this who did not get the opportunity to meet or talk to Dr. Eric I suggest you go searching for his posts. We need him as much as he needs us. He is a man full of wisdom and even gratitude for the life that he has even if it be in so much pain.

  • Dr Eric, I hope that your surgery went spectacularly, and that you are healing well. I will be waiting to hear from you, and hoping for the best.

    Best wishes. And virtual hugs. >:D< >:D< >:D<
  • hope it was a huge success! GOOD LUCK to you. By now you're out of surgery and recovering. Take it easy and post when you return.

  • I really hope everything went well for you and that you will soon be posting again. Keep us posted, ok?
  • Here is hoping that each day from here on in will be less painful then the day before and in a few weeks time you will be so thankful that you hung in there and had the surgery. I also hope that you get to spend lots of quality time with your children and in the future get to have some fun with them as well.
