Letter To The Editor: Thank You All For Helping Me

Los Alamos

For the past three months I have been seriously ill (Septis). It appears that I am finally over it and I would like to thank the people who helped me through this ordeal. 

First of all I would like to thank the nurses and doctors at Los Alamos Medical Center who literally saved my life. Our community is fortunate to have such a group of compassionate, caring and hard-working people.

Secondly, I would like to thank my wife and family for putting up with me and caring for me during my long recovery. I needed an IV every eight hours for several weeks and my wife Kathy was a real trooper. She’s the best.

I would also like to thank all of you who helped my family, prayed for us, and came to visit me when I was in the hospital. Your thoughtfulness is very appreciated. Sometimes it helps just to have someone to talk to or to know that people are thinking about you.

Finally, I would like to thank my friends and colleagues at Tibbar Technologies. The day I checked into the hospital we received an e-mail from ARPA-E (DOE) asking us to submit a full proposal on our plasma-based
electrical transformers. We had 45 days to produce a 30-page technical proposal as well as all of the supporting financials. Frankly, I was just too sick to do this. However, a phenomenal group of people stepped up and
got this moving. It’s wonderful to have friends who will do something like this for you. 

When I got to feeling better, I was able to help out and we got the proposal submitted. While we don’t yet know if it will be funded, this gave me something to focus on and helped take my mind off of my health problems. Once again, thanks to all of you.
