Rob the Phoenix Valkyrie's Kicking Ass!

Just got off the phone with Rob’s mother, and I haven’t heard her so upbeat this entire difficult time.

Rob is really, REALLY getting there – at about a 95% recovery as of today.

The doctors still need to keep a very close eye on a few things, so Rob will be in the hospital yet for a while. They will also begin physical rehabilitation this week.

Her mother wanted me to thank you all from the bottom of her heart for all of the love, healing, prayers and support. She and I both know it’s definitely made all the difference in Rob’s progress. Keep it all going strong, so that when Rob busts through that finish line, she reallyย makes a permanent full-recovery breakthrough. So that when she’s home again and able to be herself, she can continue her life in the knowledge that she is SO very loved, admired and adored, that she’s changed so many lives with her writing and her feisty personality, and that she brings so much light into this world.

Our Valkyrie will be coming home very, VERY soon.
