Hi Lorie,

I've been on vacation and just got home this afternoon to see this. All my best to you and Rob and the kids. I can't imagine how hard it must be for all of you. I want to write so much, but the only thoughts coming to my head are that you are good people and good people deserve, and most times receive, good things, even if you have to take the hard way around sometimes.

I'll be thinking of you.

ROCK ON........Trish

Yeah... good luck to all of you and a brave step!
It's brave and hard to look for help esp a big step like this, so that says a lot about Rob!


Rather laugh about what has been
Then fear what still comes, perhaps
Rather loving a big ghost
Then hating something that you can’t see

You are gone, but closer then ever

Thanks for the update, Lorie. You, Rob, and the family are in our thoughts and prayers.

Hey everyone

Rob did not have a good day today, but was where he needed to be. Right now they are trying to figure out the meds and have changed diagnoses, which, changes the meds. It will take a bit to figure out what is going to work.

I have had one of those days where reality is setting in. Rob is safe and where he needs to be, and I am starting to process this past week. I came so close to losing him. I am tired and drained, but in good spirits. Cause I didn't lose him. And we will beat this. I know we will.

I truly want to thank everyone who has reached out.

Thank you all

Hang in there. None of us can tell you they know what you are going through, but I hope the support and concern helps. I keep thinking of this and wondering how you are doing.

Much love,

Hey everyone,

Another thing I forgot to mention...Rob's employer has been phenominal. I have had calls asking if I need help with meals, anything they can do, and asking where they can send things to Rob (flowers, etc)...and this is from the president of the company on down.

It has been such an answer to great about getting the disability info, reasurring the job will be there, and just telling Rob to not worry and do what he needs to do to get better. All the details have been so perfect. God is good.

Love to you all.

Hey all...

Just to let you all know....Rob's birthday is Tuesday. I have started a thread .... Birthday wishes for Rob .... in off topic.

Lorie and I have talked... If you want to leave Rob a Birthday wish...then go there and post it.

Lorie will print the whole thing out and take it to Rob on tuesday.

So do it by monday night so she can take them in.

Thank you all...

Lorie I have gotten to know Rob these last few months from our Healing Circles each Sunday. He is so strong and determined to move forward and get better.

WE all knew that this last week was going to be hard on him, and it was good to see that he did the right thing, by reaching out and asking for help.

I can not say anything more than has already been said. I want to assure you of my support for you and Rob. If there is ever anything I can do to help other than pray please let me know.

Rob is strong and he WILL make it through this. He has come such a long way in the past few months. He is really a inspiration to so many ofus.

I read the birthday thread above. Don't you guys think we can start a similar threat with positive encouragement to Rob that can be given to him. Just make him feel how valued he is and cheer him up?

Not Perfect, just forgiven
