    Glad to hear he's doin better. Do you know if the cards i sent got to him? I am unable to get to an actual post office to send the usual way so I have no way of knowing if the postage i used was enough, etc. The post cards would have been Great Lakes related...

    I will check with them and find out, and then get back to you here. Thanks for your concern.

    To everybody, today, he posted that the nasal feeding tube is out for good, he has no restrictions on liquids and he can eat mushy food. So he's getting there. Please keep the Christmas and/or outdoor scene postcards coming. They're really very much appreciated and he's a guy that's totally worth it, trust me on this one.

    Yup. Spent the holidays there. I believe the day he will leave the hospital is coming into sight, but I don't know when it will be.

    That's great, thank you, but please note, they're just looking for scenes of outdoor views, a post card with a nice picture on it, nothing elaborate.

    Hey @Rebound59 this is the first time I'm seeing this thread. I'm sorry this is happening to your friend but I'm glad to see he's getting better. I'll make sure to send something this week.

    You're a great friend.

    That's awesome. Yes, thanks for reminding me I needed to update this. Just the other day was 5 months in the hospital for Garfield. Everyone, please, let's keep the cards coming. They've dropped off to pretty much nothing lately.

    Thanks to everyone who has sent cards already too.

    Thanks for your inquiry. Yes, he's still there, although he's doing much better and should be out before too much longer. If you would like to send a card, please do, it will be appreciated.

    Update: still improving, expected to be able to go home as soon as they can get a hospital bed, I think.

    Thanks for all the support, sherbros.

    Thanks, everyone, for all your support.

    Great news, he's out of the hospital now, and all set up at home. It won't be easy, obviously, but they're both a lot happier now that he can get around in a motorized chair, and sleep at home.

    Nope, the other megalopolis LOL

    Well, it's big enough to have an MMA gym that hosts a (maybe former?) UFC fighter anyway ;-)

    Edit: I forgot to say thank you. I blame the drugs. More on that upon request since it’s OT.
    Awesome. Drop them a line and tell them you're from Sherdog and that I sent you. Garfield is back home now and doing a lot better, but now the struggle has barely begun for his wife, who is now also his principle caregiver. They can still use all the encouragement they can get.

    And hey everybody, while you're at it, feel free to make a donation to Muscular Dystrophy research and sponsor Garfield.

    Incidentally, @sideboob, in my book you might have the GOAT av on here. It’s the bomb.
