Title: I am Home... Steve Walker
Post by: swalker on January 01, 2015, 10:38:22 AM
   What a Deal.... The last month or so put me through a battle. One I could of not won if it had not been for God and my wife.

   My wife and I are totally overwhelmed by all the prayers, cards, thoughts, etc. All I know to do now is continue to heal and try and pay it forward. It has been a rough go as you know and then yesterday our furnace went out. It should be fixed tomorrow.
   Above all, I hope you all know that we don't forget what has been done for us in our time of need. I hope and pray that if any of you need anything that I am able to help out in some way.
Thanks again for everything. I can not hardly wait till Rally Time...
Steve

Steve: Great news on being home. Glad to see the photo. Much improved from the last time I saw you! [Think I counted 14 wires/hoses plugged into various parts of your body.] Will plan a trip to Rogers soon. Welcome back.

   Doing therapy here at my house and I have a nurse come by to keep a check on me every other day or so. I believe I will be doing the therapy for 3 weeks, once or twice a week. For the most part I feel good. I believe I am doing well now. I am off the oxygen machine and am just doing the breathing treatments.
   I still haven't gotten all of my voice back, so it is hard for me to talk on my cell phone. We truly appreciate all the kind words, thoughts and prayers that have came to us from all over the world. I'll never forget you people. I am great full for our Father in Heaven and for my wife that has stood by me through this whole ordeal.

Hey Steve,
Glad to hear you are home and doing well. I searched and searched for a proper envelope ::). Guess I'll go to the truck stop and see if I can find one that is fitting to send to you. You need to explain the "envelope" to Dusty.

Your Guzzi friend, Tex

It has been a rough go. But am on the mend now. Will go to an internal medicine doctor in February. Hoping I can get off some of the pills, etc. that I am on right now.
Oh, I don't need anymore test results sent right now. lol

Don Robinson called me a little bit ago. He told me JN was in the hospital in McAllister. I guess he had gone to Tulsa and picked up his Guzzi on a trailer and when he got back home, he got out of his truck and hit the ground. Don said he is suffering from dehydration. Am hoping and praying he gets healed up soon.
Ok, talk to ya later... Steve

Steve I've been following this thread and I've got to say I don't envy your experience one bit.

There are some things I'm afraid of. Sharks is one. Being unable to breath properly is another. Various other physical indignities I can be more or less philosophical about but breathing difficulties send my body into a blind panic.

I'm glad to see you are home and on the mend.
