Wow. Whew. Thank you all.

Wow. Whew. Thank you all. December 14, 2016

Huge, heartfelt thanks to all for the overwhelming response to my fundraising appeal this week.

You’ve made my wife cry, but in the best way. Tears of relief and from the astonished joy of utter gratitude are a wonderful change from the tears produced by the pain of torn tendons and the financial fear it carried with it. Grin for grin and tear for tear, you made a big difference in our lives over the past 24 hours.

Thank you. Thankyouthankyouthankyou, you beautiful, generous people. You’ve restored a bit of solid ground beneath our feet.

(For those still willing and able to contribute, there’s a terrific Winter Holidays Charity drive going on in comments here that is helping some of our more vulnerable neighbors. Give it a look.)

Thank you again, and again, and again. I can’t say it enough.
