Rick returned home from University Hospital yesterday. We are grateful for so many prayers offered on his behalf. He will continue to have painful post herpatic neuralgia for weeks and perhaps months. His seizures are under control. He is so happy to be with his family again. We are hopeful that this painful experience in his life will soon be over. Thanks to all the doctors, nurses, EMT's, and technicians who have served him during his treatment. And thanks to all who have contributed to his expenses and care.
