Journal entry by Nathan Rothenberger

Tom asked us to share the following yesterday:

Just wanted to send a note of thanks for your prayers and good thoughts. 
I'm am recovering well. Getting better each day. Got to go for a walk today around the hospital floor. 
Needless to say I thank God he decided I have more life to live. I am also very thankful for all your help and support ....special thank you ( and thank you is totally inadequate.... I owe you my life) to Rachel and Joe Folsom for stepping in and saving my life. So important to know CPR. 
Just wanted to let you know I'm making progress each day. I have a great group of doctors managing my care and Rosa is my Rockstar.
