And we all sigh with relief...

Even a warm voiced phonecall is not the same as seeing for oneself. So it was wonderful to go to the Greenacres Hospital yesterday and see him awake, chatting, the old Max. He is still in discomfort, (obviously) but he is getting better by the minute, everything is working as it should, in fact he has the blood pressure and pulse rate of a young man! And, having reassured myself with 3 great visits yesterday, I slept for 13 hours straight through last night.

He specifically asked me to thank all of you for the messages of support, and the care and concern that you have shown.

Max is, in many ways, a retiring man, he was painfully shy when we met (which I found amazingly cute and attractive!!) and despite that he is such a steady, ethical, logical, and intellegent person that he is a natural leader, and has had to overcome his natural shyness and reticence over the years to assume many leadership roles.

But he is still surprised when others recognise his strengths, and I don't think he had realised the impact his blog has had on so many around the world. He has been very touched by the reaction of so many who have never met him. Of course in my humble and unbiased opinion, it is just that you are all clever enough to recognise immediately what I have know since I met him 31 years ago, that he is a very exceptional, brilliant, special and NICE person!

Anyway, thanks again from both of us, the support has been deeply appreciated. And now we just take it a day at a time as he continues to get stronger and better.

That's great news Suzi. I'm glad to hear it.

Thanks for sharing during this difficult time.

Any idea what caused this? Does he have to go through any lifestyle changes of significance?
