Get well soon my friend. I hope you are not in terrible shape. Just remember, the hydrogen peroxide only hurts for a second but the benifits are HUGE. After a couple of days of that type of cleaning you will be used to it and welcome that little brown bottle, and the fizzing benifits. Sincerely, Rick

Update

Hey, this is Mrs. Lee (Kate) and just wanted to give you all a quick update while I'm at home taking care of the pups.<p>Needless to say, Lee is doing a lot better than he was yesterday. Pain level is slackening and spirits are rising which is exactly what we want to see at this point. They have decided to run a few more scans and observe him again overnight, so we have at least another day in the hospital ahead of us.<p>He has been able to get up and walk to the restroom and back, albeit with a decent amount of pain, but the mobility we are already seeing is very, very promising. Lots of baby steps ahead, to be sure.<p>While he does not have internet in his room, I and a few of the guys from work have told him about all of your well wishes and I cannot begin to tell you how MUCH of a difference it makes as far as morale. We both really appreciate all of your thoughts and prayers.<p>I'm off to bring him some real food (hospital food = blech) and will hopefully post another update tomorrow after we get him home and comfortable.<p>Thank you again and be well!

Thank you for the update!<p>If you dont mind me asking, was he wearing a helmet? Where there any C-spine injuries etc?<p>I dont know if you know how to PM so if not thats fine, just curious to how our beloved R mod is doing. <p>

Re: (Copeland)

Definitely was wearing a helmet, and not the Big Ben kind, either. No spinal injuries, thank god, and no further damage to the existing spinal injury he had from a car accident two years ago.<p>I can work the PM, so if you want to talk there, that's cool, too.
