2009 Post Script This 2009 revision especially honors all the wonderful souls who have touched my life ...always full of surprises. On September 19, 2008, at Barrows Neurological, St. Joe's Hospital, Phoenix, I had brain surgery, or microvascular decompression. Two neurosurgeons, Drs. Andrew Shetter and Joseph Zabramski performed this high risk procedure. These guys were brilliant and the surgery 100% successful. But a couple of days post op I developed multiple complications, including pneumonia. On my third trip back into intensive care I felt... spent. I told the attending nurse that I didn't want to be re-intubated. The nurse called my wife and told her what I wanted....

On May 18, 2009, I was advised that due to budgetary constraints, the Arizona Office for Americans with Disabilities was to be permanently closed.... My job as Executive Director... would terminate.... Like many of you who read this, I'm looking for another job. That's life. The rest is inside.
