Just saw this thread and Go Fund Me campaign. Dave and Ruth have always welcomed me with open arms. I figured I'd pitch in. Thanks for getting the collection going.

I was going to write "best wishes for a speedy recovery" but I think the 'speedy' part is sorta out at this point. These things seem to take a while. I hope Dave recovers well.

Tom

Just made a donation and I would like to thank all who have supported this and those who have helped with their time and talents. I have never dealt with Dave but realize that he has made a huge contribution to the audio community and we now have an opportunity to give back.

Drum roll please.

Dave will be taken home tomorrow for some trial runs. They have to sort out what might be needed for his future should they be able to stay in their house. As Chris mentions, there's stairs to deal with and other obstacles so it's not time to come home yet. Let's hope this visit does his insides good and helps the recovery. As we all know, there's no place like home and maybe this visit will add extra encouragement.

BTW, Welcome home Chris. Hope your time in the sun was like a spring clean and battery charge all rolled into one.

That's great news Cal.

Just the change of scenery and to be able to feel the outside air again should hopefully do wonders for Dave's outlook and provide a real mental boost.

Cal ; mahalo nui loa - yes it was all of what you said


The helicopter tour of West Maui Hills and Molokai was probably the highlight - Maui is not called the Valley Island without reason - then an almost perfectly clear, but chilly mid morning walkabout on Haleakala - just in time to beat most of the mid-day tourist rush. Did you know there are crazy guys who ride their racing bikes up that hill? They gotta be slightly winded at 10,000 feet.

Then we get to come back to this corner of paradise - well, at least our late summers are nice -ish.

I have a feeling the battery charge will last only a few more days.

Well, still have Bermuda to look forward to in late May.

The big challenge of course will be when he's on his own. I know him well enough to worry that he'll be impatient to get back at 'er, and perhaps overestimate his capabilities and stamina.

FWIW, latest news from Ruth is that hospital wants to release Dave into the wild this coming Tuesday. So after almost 5 months in the hospital, the past 5 or 6 weeks in limbo as to release date and degree of recovery, and just how much reno may need to be done to suit his "new normal", it's crunch time kiddies.

I'd not be surprised if he wears out a keyboard or two in the first couple of weeks back.
