121/365 In the words of Brother Manilow, "Looks Like we Made It!"

Two weeks ago we were waiting to see if the radioactive isotope indicated the location of the torn dura, the cause of the leaking cerebro-spinal fluid, and the resultant postural headaches and diplopia. Yesterday he taught 7 classes, then prepared the stage and dressing room areas for a perfomance by 80+ elementary kids. Preparations included an attempted unassisted lifting of chorus risers (we can all kill him for that one). He accompanied the 85 minute show on piano, delivered closing remarks, greeted the audience, and then helped to move tables and chairs to return the performance venue to its daytime cafeteria status. A stop for a Sonic treat and a couple of hours of channel surfing finshed the day. Not bad for a guy who couldn't sit up for a month.

Bravo! Bravisimo! How does he manage to stay so handsome when just weeks ago schmutz was leaking out of his brain? Congratulations to both of you for shining through some rough days.

Am I understanding that he tried to move them again? I'll pretend I didn't hear that. Congrats on another great show!
