Today I posted a status about my surgery and after a few hours I had so many comments from friends out there from all over and I don't know why it struck me so hard but it made me feel so good. I don't know how many people truly cared about my stupid finger but so many people wished me luck, sent prayers, messages, phone calls and on the way to the hospital all I could do was smile (although my finger was about to get a metal rod drilled through it).
Fast-forward a few hours of excruciating pain from my surgery and I was back at the office and looking for hotels to stay at in NYC. I made a call to a buddy of mine that I played soccer with at Clemson and he offered his apartment to us for 3 nights...no biggie. We also got a free flight through another friend of a friend. How awesome is that?
The power of friendship is amazing to me and today was just a normal day that turned into an amazing day all through a status update.
So to all my friends out there...THANK YOU!
