Iíve been thinking hard about how to word this letter. 


Your wishes, prayers, thoughts, and
 Generosity, is overwhelming, and is helping a lot.

THANK YOU ALL.

 I thought I had worked out a safe install for the new antenna.
It wasnít as it turned out, and the antenna got close enough to 7800-volt line
That it arced over. 

I never lost consciousness. I never want to go through anything like that again.

 
After the power stopped buzzing, the voltage released itís grip, and I fell from the roof I had been kneeling on to the concrete patio. My muscles were contracted so tightly, and since I landed on my right side, fortunately, nothing was broken in the fall.

There was a remarkable series of events, that actually saved my life, and within Ĺ hour, I was in the best burn-trauma center in the country.


Iíve been here over a month now, Iíve had 3 operations, and Iím going in for another in a few hours. This, one is to help repair the damage to my right kneecap where most of the electricity exited. Since I was kneeling, my feet where spared, and currently, Iím actually walking pretty well at this time.

There will be a few more surgeries, and months of P.T., but I have high hopes for about 90% use of my hands, and the return of feeling to my fingers.

I ask those of you who pray, for your continued thoughts, as you converse with God. It works, I know it.

For all of you my most sincere, and heartfelt thak you for the strength and love you share with me.

Bless you all, you who share this same passion, are the best. Blessings and thanks.

Hi John,

Dear friend, I'm so happy to be reading your letter. I went back and reread your January 2012 Control Line World article "What a Ride It's Been.." and enjoyed it all again.

You've got a whole bunch of friends who think the world of you, I'm certainly one.

Take care of yourself and get well.

God bless,

L.

John,

We've never met but I've read your stuff here over the years. What a remarkable story, God was obviously with you throughout and is with you now. My prayer of both thanks and healing are with you and I hope maybe to meet you someday.

Ditto to Lester and Gil's post.  Hang tough, John, God's obviously not done with you yet!  (Neither are we.)

It is wonderful to see you posting on the board John, and I am praying along with others for your complete recovery. Here is hoping your knee surgery will go well with little pain.

John-

It's SO good to hear from you on the Board. Ypo've been one of the most supportive, kind, and and creative people here in the CL community and certainly one of the most advnturous; so I know you'll be forging ahead. But like the others, I've been extremely worried about you and have been sending you my best thoughts and prayers. You'll continue in my thoughts too!

Hey Buddy,
Ya' had me worried there for a while.  I don't have so many friends that I can afford to lose one.  Sounds like you've come through the worst of it with flying colors.  Hang in there and I know you'll make a complete recovery...none of this 90% stuff.  Trust in God and the doctors and you'll make it to VSC next year.
Everyone on the forum and a lot of others that I've talked to are pulling for you and praying for you.
I can't imagine why everyone likes you so much but for some strange reason they do...personally, I think you're a hell of a fine gentleman and a brave soul...
Just don't ever do anything like this again!!!!  Ya hear!

Love Ya,

Big John,  I hope you don't  mind if I call you that.   You are big in my heart from the day you autographed the kit I got from Ken Smith after Gordy autographed it.   I think  most has been stated already.   Now take care of yourself and the LORD willing, will see you again. Hoff

John,

It's great to see you able to at least post a little and say hi to the gang.
Follow your Doctor's orders and the rest will come with time.

Get better soon,
