This morning I am grateful to be alive and to be celebrating 7 days of my new life. i am grateful to have gotten as much grading done as I did yesterday and that i had that much energy. I am grateful for all the messages of love and prayers for healing from people, many of whom I have never met. I am grateful for my students who have been so amazingly understanding. I am grateful for my wife who continuously steps outside her comfort zone to ensure my comfort and healing. I am grateful to my friend Ursula who has become one of my confidants.
