Good to hear he is ok and things went well, off to shoot him an email. I guess saying that its just me using a voodoo doll to poke him wouldn't go over as humorous to him eh? ;-)

Yes, me too. I'm off to send him an e-mail as well, but anyone who has an opportunity to speak to him directly, please send him my best.

Thanks for the update, Jesse  :Thmbsup:

I've been in the wrong thread trying to know about Ken.

Thanks to Wordzilla, now I know the great news.

Wonderful news, indeed.

I hope Ken can recover quickly and be chatting with us soon. :Thmbsup:

I wanted to write an open letter DC to discuss the outcome of my surgery and say thanks.

First, I am still recovering from the surgery, but I am making good progress. While I still have considerable surgical pain, the operation appears to have been extremely successful at stopping the pain I was having prior to surgery. Additionally, I have not lost any sensation or motor functioning. In other words, the operation appears to have been a complete success. Clearly it is early in the process and things may change any time, but I am extremely encouraged thus far.

Second, I wanted to thank DC as a whole. I have received countless messages in a variety of forms wishing me success with the operation, good health, emotional support and numerous other good wishes. I really appreciate all the kindness and support everyone has shown me. It's been an emotionally and physically difficult time and the support and good wishes I received from everyone really helped.

Most sincerely,

So, since the operation was a success, does that mean your head is no longer up your....oh wait, nevermind, that was intended for f0dder ;-)

Good to hear all is well. As always, if you need anything (or your family), don't hesitate to ask.
