John, so sorry about your son's accident but it sounds like he has a lot of positive things going for him. I have regular dealings with the fire departments where I live and they all are a close knit family. I doesn't surprise me that your son's fellow firefighters are doing all they can to make you and your family as comfortable as can be during this trying time. My best wishes to you all and hope that your son makes a full and quick recovery.
I believe in the human Will and the power of thought. I believe that mental energy can be directed. Your well-wishes, thoughts and prayers are a form of energy that my son can really use right now. As his body, mind and spirit begin the hard climb back, he will be surrounded by all the positive energy you have created. He'll be able to draw on that.
For that, and for being such wonderful examples of caring human beings... I thank you.
