Oh, my! I knew Tom was in ICU but for what I don't seem to have caught...
I was in ICU last year and even with good golf and the last decent TdF and the miracle of underwear two sizes too small that somehow fit and allowed me to walk down the hall and find a Reba McEntire videotape and linedance my legs back to steady walking again...but that was just near-failure of my kidneys.
It's been a tough year, Tom, my friend, and I know we'd all push the other pedal for you. Be well, and live happily.

He wanted me to tell you all hello.
Don't let some well-meaning person write an uplifting story in your obituary. YOU ARE DEAD.
