After several wind delays, Joel and I finally made it here to Craig. We were flown in a very fast and smooth Lear jet. While cruising over Colorado, it was amazing to see all the snow. Everything was blanketed in white, and there is another storm expected Thursday, so thank goodness we made it.
We’re are getting settled into the new surroundings and meeting the new staff and patients, but have no idea how long we’ll be here. I’m in a room adjacent to the hospital, and it only takes a few minutes to walk to his room — which is nice.
I have just been overwhelmed this year by the well wishes, visits and gifts from loved ones and friends. You have all been amazing. This XMas was definitely memorable — thank you. I’m especially grateful to the W.P. Carey students and staff who pitched in and raised enough to pay for a couple of trips back and forth from here to Phoenix. I’ll be sending you all a personal shout out via e-mail tomorrow.
We look forward to having visitors in several days (he’ll let you know when he’s ready). Mail can also be sent to:
