I had a phone conversation with my brother!!
It was slow and halting, and difficult to understand at times, but it was real, and I could tell it was him.
To be honest, there were many days that I thought he was gone. I had said my goodbyes, and I actually went shopping for a new suit for the funeral.
Then, after the hurricane, we had a glimmer of hope, only to be frustrated with the turtle's pace of his progress.
I doubted this day would ever come, but it did.
Welcome back Bro. I love you.
