"I want to publicly thank Dr. Joseph Maroon for fixing a very dangerous spinal injury I've had which has gotten steadily worse since October. 3 days ago I couldn't walk, now I can walk without pain. Thank you to my friends and family who have supported me through a very dark time. You have my eternal gratitude, love, respect and loyalty. I am grateful for you all, that's it. Recovery will take a while...ok I'm boring myself, go back to whatever you were doing."
