UPDATE for the Warriors and Hopers
I am pleased to announce that PJ is coming around well! He was taken off of life support late yesterday and continues to do well. He's holding "conversations" with the hospital staff, and although reportedly "inappropriate" at times (they believe due to the meds they're weening him off of), he sounds like he's closer to being himself.
I want to personally thank each and everyone for their prayers, thoughts, and hopes that have been sent our way. PJ has made a remarkable recovery and, although still not "over it," he's on his way back to health.
This last week has been quite the journey. It has been filled with fears, anger, sadness, despair, worry, hope, light, and now -- a little bit of relief and even joy. Whatever your Higher Power is, whoever they represent, I want to thank it/him/her for their guidance and contribution to the life of a young man with great potential. Let's just hope and pray that PJ will see it and take this opportunity to do what he was put here to do -- give hope to someone suffering as much as himself.
From a grateful and sober heart, I thank you all in the deepest of sincerity,
