Giving a loving shout-out to irontexasmommy for shooting me an email to ask about Scott's status..... AND she wanted to rally a card-sending cause from the athlete community. Wow. I mean seriously, people.
There it is - right THERE folks! The GOODNESS in others that affects me so profoundly I am almost speechless. (Almost!) So many of you who don't even know Scott have been asking about him.
I told Scott's wife, Tiffany, that people were asking me about Scott, people who didn't even know him, and she was so touched.
It makes me feel good......it really does - how connected we all become to one another. We don't even need to know the person to feel genuine concern, want to help, want updates, etc. For as much evil and hatred that exists in the world, every time I turn around I am struck by some random act, some statement of utter kindness that makes me smile to myself.
You guys are some GOOD people.
Thanks to Irontexasmommy for such a generous, loving gesture ........... but mostly for reminding me that there is more LOVE than sadness out there. I needed that today....
He is definitely improving. Tiffany said he was taken off the ventilator and it sounds as though his fever has broken. He's in for a long road, but thankfully all signs are good that he is going to make it.
If you would like to check on Scott's progress via or sign the guestbook, please feel free to visit his CaringBridge Website: http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/scottwhitney
Cheers, my friends...
