Finally. I was just released a few hours ago after staying in the hospital thirteen days. The last two weeks were grueling. I won't go into any nasty details. It was bad. Bottom line - it seems like Humpty's pieces were successfully put together again and zipped up.

Christine is still doing very poorly with back, neck pain and headaches. So I'm recovering now at Mom & Dad's house up in Fairview.

I am glad now to be able to drink and eat freely. I have not been allowed to eat since getting to the ER. And I lost maybe 10 or 15 lbs. I'm going to write a new diet book: "Just Don't Eat"

Where can I buy a copy of you book? I love it, "Just don't Eat" . . . I bet it's a quick read.

That must be volume two, right after, "Just Smile."

Sarah said...

Greg, glad that you still have your sense of humour after this ordeal. Enjoy gaining some of that weight back with no regrets.

Richard said...

Sorry Greg, but I cannot help but think how tough it was when the last two weeks of your 13-day stay were grueling. Ouch! We will pray for a quick recovery now that you are out. Please say hello to your folks for us.

Welcome home, Greg! We're so glad you're out of the hospital. You and Christine are in our prayers daily.
Love the book idea. Another book for the series could be "Just Don't Sin."

Shannon said...

Or, the book could be called, just block your colon.
Glad your back and eating again. Praying for Christine.

Josh said...

"Just Block Your Colon" doesn't have quite the same ring to it. My marketing instincts tell me that you should disregard Shannon's advice and go with "Just Don't Eat" :)
We love you guys and will be praying for both of you.
With you in His grace,

Carl said...

Thank You Lord

Hey Greg...
Nice to hear you finally got all the kinks worked-out. God grant you a hearty appetite and healing for both you and Christine.
