Hey Carl,

That is wonderful news and tell Thom we are all thinking about him. As an FYI, Thom and Ric became more than lovers, when they married at the AIDSmeds Gathering in Montreal. It was a wedding, for those who attended, that we shall never forget. Two nicer guys you will never find.

I just returned from visiting him.  He is much improved although will remain in the hospital.  Jan is taking care of packing his things and getting him checked out of the hotel.  He will be seen later today by the brain doctor and will get a better handle on how long he will have to remain at the hospital.  I am sure he appreciates all of the attention he is receiving from his forum friends who care for him.

A speedy recovery to you Thom!

   Poor guy, I hope he's on the mend to a full recovery soon.  Special thanks for the updates and a hug to our beloved Jan for being who she is.

   I spent  2 hours with Thom   , just got back now  at 5pm

    We talked the whole time !

    I tried to stay upbeat   .

   GARY   , Thom is very worried about his  " STUFF "   

  He asked , that I ask you "  Where are you " ? He thought Jan was returning soon ?

  The nurse said his Vitals  are good !

   He does  have   some discomfort with the cath  thing .

     He was  bleeding from his  I.V.'s  , The nurse was changing the meds !

   AND IS WAITING FOR THOM'S  MEDS TO ARRIVE FROM THE HOTEL ?

   I will  return in the morning  . The nurse was sweet enough to say I  could come 

    Later     11pm , But Thom and I decided maybe just the morning will  be good !

   Thom says THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR PRAYERS !!!!!!!

    Yes  he is a great fellow ! 

                                                                   Carl

My thoughts are with you Thom, so sorry you got to go to AMG and this most unfortunate health issue came up, tough break...But the main thing is just to get yourself well.  I missed seeing you and everyone else this year in Las Vegas.

Be well dearest man, you deserve the very best.

Thanks for the updates; Thom's in my thoughts.  One correction I should point out... Thom and Ric were married in Montreal on the same day that David and I were in '06.  Therefore, Thom's Ric's husband.  I know it's just a word, but I think that it would be important to Ric and Thom.   ;)
