I'm extremely happy to report that Steve is much better today. He sat up in his wheelchair for a couple of hours today, and his fever is subsiding.
I can't express my gratitude to all the Ragers for their support and prayers. The hospital staff along with Dr. Browning have been nothing less than awesome!!! Although we're not out of the woods yet, his prognosis his 100% better today than yesterday. He's more alert, starting to eat, and of course getting grumpier about being in the hospital. These are all great signs. As you might have realized, my parents, myself, and brother Jim have been very concerned since he fell last Wednesday. Nothing could be tougher for us than when Steve is in pain. Rhonda and I are staying with him tonight. If anyone can make him smile, it's Rhonda. He loves her to pieces. She feels the same towards him. Thank you from the entire Sandker family.
Thanks Herb!!! That is such great news! Everyone who has ever met Steve just loves him, he's such a joy to be around! I'm so glad he is doing better! Prayers are continuing for his recovery!
This is wonderful news!! Prayer is a very powerful thing for sure! Steve is such a wonderful person to be around. He surely knows how to brighten the room!
Prayers are continuing for Steve and the entire Sandker clan.

Hi Herb and Family, All sports kidding aside. We have Steve in our prayers and daily thoughts. We wish him a fast recovery. Maybe there's hope...........Steve could be a San Diego Charger fan !! How about that Steve. Lot's of laugh's from California Karen and Chris
I just got home from the hospital. (I run the night shift so Mom and Dad can get some rest.)
I'm happy to say Steve is making great improvements in leaps and bounds. Removed the catheter yesterday, and he decided it was time to make sure everything still worked. It did, all night long!!!!!!! LOL Needless to say he was a happy camper. He laughed, giggled, and talked till 6am!!!! Mom and Dad got to the hospital around 7am and he was snoring like no tomorrow. Mom said he must have slept good last night. I told her for the last hour he has. I'm way too old to be staying up all night. I'm taking a hammer with me tonight. There will be no talking till the wee hours. Looks like he will be going home on Thursday. He's ready, and so am I.
