Well... ended up getting admitted to the hospital on Friday afternoon. Lung has collapsed two more times since the initial one on Thursday morning. I got released today (Sunday) at about 12:30pm so I could be with the family for the holiday. Still have a tube in my chest, and my breathing is still a little unstable, but hopefully things will get better, not worse. At least I'll get to be with my family on Christmas.

I can't thank you guys enough for all of your support. You have no idea how good all of you have made me feel.

Sincerest thanks from the Steinmetz family...

Gell well soon and Merry Christmas. Looks like a quiet week weather wise; so get some much needed rest.

John... you've got to be exhausted! Correct me if I'm wrong, but you've been plowing for about the last month straight! Make sure you stay healthy, that goes for everyone, we don't want you guys to end up in the same boat as me.
