    Re: Greg McCary in serious accident

    Greg, I am new to this site and have not had the pleasure to interact with you (and most other regular contributors here) a lot yet, but i truly hope you get better very soon and dont have to deal with hospitals for a long time. You never want to hear about something like this happening to anybody let alone to a member of the community who is as well respected and appreciated as you.
    You will be in our prayers.

    As you all know Greg's surgery was a complete success! We are very thankful and relieved. (Posting on PR was one of Greg's first requests post surgery but I didn't have his laptop w me at the time.) Yet again, Greg and I thank you for all your kind words and support. You are a remarkable group that touch others with your thougtfulness as much as you do with your inspiring photographs. Peace to all.

    Congratulations Greg! Another milestone. Wow! You have a lot of strength and courage to get through all of this - along with some wonderful physicians, nurses, therapists, and all your friends and supporters.

    That's what it's all about. Spring has arrived!

    Thank you LIz, it was just over a year ago that you, Aaron, Paula, Frog, Paul, PJ, OT, Peter, Dray and soooo many others held my hand through the fears and trials of Greg's injuries. I will never forget it! Btw, Greg bought me an Olympus E-510 for Christmas so I plan to get a few lessons during his recovery period. I will be posting hopefully before long. I have much to learn!
    God bless, NJ

    We love you Greg and are so grateful to have you back with us - moving right along - once again. :thumbsup:

    Re: Greg McCary in serious accident

    Just being at home again can make a great difference to a speedy recovery. Take it easy and get yourself in shape to have a great picture taking summer.
    Don't forget about the Gallery. Are your photos there??

    Re: Greg McCary in serious accident

    I ask Liz to unstick this thread. I think this last surgery fixed me as good as I am going to get. I think with some hard work I will be
    100% soon. Though I still have quite a bit of pain in my left hip and leg. My left foot is totally numb and have good days and bad. Some days I have all kinds of energy and some days I want to stay in bed all day.
    But I would like to share one last thing. "Before" I fell Nora and I were just days from a divorce. We had been going through some really rough waters for quite awhile. But some where deep down inside of me I felt that I still loved her and that I might be making a mistake and I was to proud or stupid to realize it. Then..... I fell.
    In one fast thud my life took a turn. I am not even going to attempt
    to tell you all that I went through while I was unconscious. But it was bad, real bad.
    But I feel like God saved me because I had unfinished business here on Earth. The love for my wife and daughter pulled me through. I still loved my wife and I wanted to be with her. I missed her and my daughter.
    So when I woke up I decided that I was going to make right a huge mistake. I was going to try and make up with Nora and make it work. I realized that if there was still love in my heart for Nora there was hope. So Nora and I tried again.
    We have been doing very good. We have hit a couple of bumps in the road here and there but the love we have for each other in our hearts has only grown over the last few months. We have been on one heck of a second honeymoon. I joke with Nora that God slung me off of that bridge and the old Greg has died and isn't coming back. That fall changed my life for the better and forever and for all of the pain I go through now I wouldn't go back and be the old Greg. Not that I was a bad person. Just that I had a lot of areas for improvement.
    In other words that fall wasn't the worst thing that ever happened to me it was the best thing that ever happened to me. If I could go back to that bridge and was given a choice of falling or going back to the old Greg I would choose to fall again. "You read that right." That fall saved my marriage.
    In the blink of an eye your life can take a turn. One slip, one turn, one fall and everything changes. My favorite show is " I Survived ". I can relate to the people on that show.
    Yes Larry, I am home again. Where I belong. With my beautiful wife and daughter.
    Thanks again for all of the support. You will never know what it feels like to be flat on your back to weak to even dial a phone and have so many praying for you. It means a lot. I love you all.

    Re: Greg McCary in serious accident

    During your convalescence and Nora's postings to keep us up to date, it was obvious that she loved you and I hoped,(prayed), that if anything good could come of this disaster that it would be the saving of your marriage...for both your sakes.
    Thanks for the story Greg. It helps me in ways no one will ever know.

    Re: Greg McCary in serious accident

    So glad to see you're doing so well Greg. And whatever you do, don't forget that love and don't neglect it again. God often has a way of making things work out in ways we may never want to experience, but boy can it wake you up and change your life for the better.
