    He's doing better. He still is very limited in what he can do, but he's pretty much beyond the pain part now.

    Mostly he's just frustrated at not being able to do a lot and having to rely on others, and not really knowing when or if he'll be able to return to work.

    All that being said his spirits are a lot better than they were for the first month and he's extremely grateful for everyone's generosity!

    Oh, and for those interested, the 2013 St. Louis BBQ has been scheduled for Saturday October 26th at noon. It's a "bring your own everything" affair and we will have a grill to cook up whatever goodies people bring.

    Here is the Facebook event page for the BBQ: https://www.facebook.com/events/247332188748571/ (I'm not sure if you have to be a member of SESHO on Facebook to see the page.)

    Holy crap, how did I miss this?!? Glad to hear James is OK and doing better. Donation on the way. Get better soon James!

    I also wish I could actually make the BBQ this year since I'm in the same state, but I'll actually be in Detroit that weekend :(

    Bump for a good cause, and so I don't have to spend 20 minutes searching for a thread again!

    He's been back working on light duty for a few weeks. They're talking about moving him to a different position since it seems unlikely he'll be able to work as a full technician again.

    Ugh! I hope his recovery goes far, far better than anyone believes.

    Well that sucks, but at least he is alive and still able to work. From the looks of the car, I think he had someone watching over him. :eek:

    Thanks to the many who donated to James. Our community has always been a tight knit one, taking care of our own, and I know he was most grateful for the help.

    A big S-A-L-U-T-E and hats off to all of you! :cheers: :hail:
