Thank you Pat for setting this up. I know his family appreciates all of the

I have also taken donations via the elmoto.net website from some of the
other members. We plan on getting him a little gift and card when people are
able to start visiting (not allowed right now). I'm in close contact with
his mother and she's been updating me on his status. Its looking positive,
but he's still got a ways to go. I'll try to update as I find out more.

I wish I could be there at the thursday meeting, but I have another meeting
that conflicts..... Thanks a ton Pat for doing this.
