I am glad to report that I got an email from Dr. Eric's daughter and that his surgery went well and he is recuperating in the hospital. She didn't mention how much longer he would be there but I will let you know when I hear from her again. For those of you who talked with Dr. Eric you know that his struggle was long and hard. I'm so very happy that he will soon be back offering us his support and advice. I am just so happy! I cannot begin to tell you how much his words of wisdom have meant to me and I know to others. I cannot wait for him to get back here.
For those of you who did not have the pleasure of communicating with him please make an effort to track him down on this forum and just listen to his story. I promise you you will be amazed, in awe and inspired by this sweet soul.

    Hi tonya42,
    I've been wondering every day since he went in for surgery if he came through it alright and how he is doing. Worrying would be a better word.
    He is such a great person and one of my buddies. Please let me know any info you get.
    Much appreciated, Jim

  • Yes I too have been wondering how he did and if he got to rehabilitate at home as he wanted.
    As long as he is being looked after that is all that matters.

    Thanks Tanya

  • They have evidently sent him to the Rehabilitation hospital that he so wanted to avoid. I will let everyone know when we can expect him to be back home. I suspect that the next email I get about his progress will be from him personally. He is such a determined person. :)
  • Dr Erics rehab hospital will be like mine which was wonderful. Very helpful and positive.

  • I've been thinking about Dr Eric ever since I read one of his blogs. I hope and pray that he's on the road to recovery and doing well. Thanks for letting us know that the surgery went well.

    Many hugs and prayers for Dr. Eric. Hope we hear from him soon.
  • That helps ease my mind. I had pictured some horrible place. Good to know that he's being looked after and cared for.
  • I received a message from Dr. Eric's daughter this morning. He will be coming home from the hospital today (Friday).

    FANTASTIC ! ! !

    Welcome home Eric!!!
