 Hello all of Bruce's followers!  My name is Niki and I am Bruce's nurse.  Bruce asked me to write a short message to all of you.  Bruce had a stroke about a week ago.  He is at St. Joshephs hospital in Bellingham in the Rehab unit.  Bruce is recovering very well. He is walking independently around the unit and many of us wouldn't guess that he is a patient.  He has aphagia and has diffuculty finding the words to express himself.  This has been very frustrating for him. 
Bruce has been very concerned about all of you not knowing why he hasn't updated his blog.  So I am helping him a bit. 
It has been an extreme pleasure to get to know Bruce and an inspiration!  I'm sure he would love to hear from any of you.

Good Morning Bruce,

So sorry to hear you are not feeling that chipper. With the great help and encouragement from your nurse, you will be back trotting across America very soon. Get well, quickly, and Happy Trails To You, when you continue your journey. I, like everyone else, have been wondering why you have not been updating lately.

Hi Bruce,

My name is Mark Canniff. I've been following you, off and on since the beginning. I just want to say what an inspiration you are to me and I'm sure to so many people.

I hope you get well soon but don't over do it now. ☺

Take it one day at a time and I'm certain you'll get there.

In the meantime, I'm sending some prayers to help you out a little. ☺

All the best,

So sorry to hear that Bruce is having health issues and St. Josephs is the best for him to be right now. Have had many friends there and they received excellent care. I'm sure under your care Bruce will be back on the road some day.

Best wishes for a speedy recovery to Bruce from a friend in Point Roberts.
