I just thought I would let you all know that this morning my son David had more reconstructive surgery on his cleft pallet at Childrens Hospital in Philadelphia. I left him this evening at about 9:00 PM and he was doing pretty well. My wife will stay with him tonight and I will stay with him tomorrow night. His voice is a little rasp and he said it hurts a little bit, but he is definitly on the mend. I just thought I would pass this on to all of you with hopes that you will remember him in your prayers. And my thanks to all the staff at CHOP for doing such a great job.

Hi Dave,

I appreciate the update on your son. As Gordon has mentioned, your son has been through so much in his young life...but he is definately an inspiration to us all. He has shown his resilence through his many surgeries and will bounce back quickly from the recent procedure. Your family will be in my prayers...

Thanks Dave - as he recovers from this ordeal, he will become stronger and stronger. I'm sure you are proud of him. I have thought of him occasionally while away from the board, and those thoughts have given me inspiration to help people who have been dealt more problems than I.

Thank you, and to young David, thank you as well.

Dave, my thoughts are with you and your wife.... try not to worry, he's in good hands and will pull through. He's definitely a trooper - just look at those eyes. Here's wishing him a speedy recovery from this surgery, sending him back home again....

What a tough person your son is. I couldn't come close to the courage that he has shown. We are all pulling for him, and I know that he will come through this just fine.
