Subject: RE: Healing thoughts & prayers please (Nigel Paterson)
Spaw, I don't know where to start. That you should have had to endure all (and more) of the above beggars belief. That you have retained a positive, optimistic outlook on life is nothing short of miraculous. Your 'Litany', as you describe it, is also testament to the human body's ability to go catastrophically wrong & yet, with appropriate interventions, it gathers itself & the next phase of one's life begins. What you've written is not a 'ramble', it's a vividly personal account of one Man's triumph over adversity, written with honesty & openness & a candour of rare quality. 'Inspirational' is a word I reserve for very special occasions. Your post is truly Inspirational. I am deeply moved that you have involved me so intimately with your fears, your struggle & pain & your cry from the rooftops: "Damn ain't I lucky to be alive".
       Kat, Gnu, Bruce, Spaw, my life is enriched by the ways you have chosen to live your lives.
       With Love & Gratitude,
                                          Nigel.
