      Once you get the list for what needs to be done with regaurds to remodeling let me know what material you will need especially lumber etc.. for the ramps. I work for a Lumber Company and get a very good discount. I can also help with any construction you need to do. I just need some notice to make plans.

      Hi all,

      Chatted with Howard this evening and as Curtis said, everything is
      going great with Howard's recovery. All the kind words and thoughts
      have really made the difference.

      As for remodels, help at home. Howard is making his first trip home
      this weekend and I will be taking careful notes as to what needs to
      be done to make it Howard ready and helpful. As it stands right now
      (or at least from Howard's bedside this evening) he is thinking about
      one main ramp in the garage to get into the house. Measurements have
      all been made compliments of MrsSQ's dad. That being said, after the
      first visit this weekend I will have a better idea of where to point
      this great outpouring of help.

      Don't worry, I will be calling.

      If anyone has any questions please feel free to email me
      texbobcatATgmail. com or give me a call. My cell is floating out there
      somewhere. I generally get to email about once a day (in the
