I am so sorry it's taken me so long to update you all on John and his situation.
John is home, he went home on Thursday of last week after his surgery. He's doing well, and having a little bit of a hard time adjusting to his "new life" ... he is on some restrictions (no heavy lifting, and he can't drive for at least 12 weeks.) he should be able to get back to work soon - on a very very limited basis.
He knows what happened, he remembers right up until he passed out, and has done exceedingly well adjusting (except a few small things .. loud noises, and what not, they cause his heart to race, and he gets nervous thinking his heart will stop again - though with his defibrillator in place, that won't happen)
John, and his entire family, and friends, are all very thankful, and touched by the thoughts and prayers, and actions, of so many.
I will keep you all updated, as I can, he's keeping to himself a little, and keeping a low profile while he adjusts to life as it is, other than that, he's John. And that is a very good thing.
