Got my access codes restored to the public journals. A thank-you to Scott and Hank for taking care of that little detail for me.

I'm ... OK. Not great, but considering that I should be dead, I'll take my current condition as a vast improvement.

I owe a heartfelt thank-you to the Medical staff, plus to Forge, Paige, Doug, and Kitty. Without them, I would not be contemplating physiotherapy to regain the use of my new artificial legs, but instead be looking at life as a parapalegic.

And for the Medical staff themselves - words alone cannot convey the depths of my gratitude. I would be diseased, dead, and buried long ago without their heroic efforts on my behalf. Thank you. Bless you.

Bless you all. Allah looks upon your works and smiles.

I ... I do not have the words to express how I feel. I have been granted a third chance at life, and I do not intend to squander it.


PS - Kylun, if you get a couple of moments to spare, I want to talk to you. About your warrior's heart, the traditions and spirituality of your people. We have not done enough of that, focusing instead on the mechanics, the graceful violence at which we both excel.

But if you've earned that A, I'll be proud to give it.

The class is tough. I know that. But look at how far you've come in a short time. Arabic is a hard language to learn for someone who didn't grow up speaking it. I'm tough on you, but it's to bring you up to speed quickly and thoroughly.

Be proud in how far you've come.

Of course, Haroun. I will look forward to it.

And who knows, perhaps our mechanics will even benefit from the discussions. The spirituality has always stood at the heart of the grace, for me, informing its determination and enlivening it with purpose beyond the demands of the moment.

I'm looking forward to it.

Besides, perhaps the philosophy and the mechanics will get me out of the chair sooner.

I'm glad you're feeling better.

You're welcome, hon.

Does this mean you stop calling me names in Arabic during therapy? ;)

How long until you're back on your feet and kicking my ass again?

I'm sorry that Sefton's wicked deed of the day got in the way of this; you're most welcome, sir. I compiled a set of notes of pretty much everything that was racing through my head while working, and have included them with your file. It might, if nothing else, be an interesting viewpoint.
