Sheesh, that sounds far too close for comfort. I'm very glad that you're still with us, Tony, and that you've made a good recovery. Life is very sweet.

I had been sick the weekend before, but I thought it was the flu. I went to a doctor, and he thought it was a virus. I remember being brought home after the doctor's appointment, and then the next thing I remember is being awakened five days later in intensive care. But I'm getting stronger every day now. Thanks for your good thoughts, Chris.
