Hi Eric,

Great news. It is wonderful that a group of people from such a list can
get together and support an individual they have never met like this. I
am glad you were able to pass on all our hopes for his full recovery
with a personal visit. I bought my first 'fresh meteorite' ( amgala
with primary, secondary and tertiary fusion crusts ) from Walter...still
one of my favourites that I show to others to illustrate its firey flight.

> His daughter is doing fine, out playing with her friends. The young heal fast. I asked how his wife was doing and he said she has been incredible. All the financial stuff and other things that Walter used to deal with she has taken care of completely. She is there every day and Walter considers himself luck to have her. Unfortunately she was not there during my visit so I did not get to meet her.
> As far as Walter himself goes he is getting better. He doesn't have much of an appetite and it was obvious after a couple hours that he was getting tired. While I was there the head of the rehab center dropped by and said that as soon as the surgeons cleared him he was headed over to rehab. That is expected sometime this week. After that the rehab people will torture him until he can get in and out of bed and walk. A compound fracture of his upper right leg makes that difficult now. Once rehab is done it will be home to his own bed and family for further healing. That isn't the end though because there will be further surgery required in the coming months. All in all he looked really good for someone who nearly died at the scene of the accident.
