the writing and photography of Neil Kramer

From Sophia

Thank you all for your support and good wishes.   We’ve been alternating at the hospital and Neil is there right now.  The situation is quite grim.  Neil’s father has not regained consciousness and is on a respirator. 

Again, thank you.  Neil will be very touched when he reads your comments.

    Hi Neil,

    My father spent about three weeks on a ventilator and then had a trachiostomy that was eventually followed by a triple bypass.

    This all followed what was supposed to be a two week trip to see my kid sister in New Jersey.

    The docs told us that he was not likely to survive.

    Anyway, it is more than a year later and he is doing well. So keep the faith and know that there are good wishes coming your way.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you and the rest of the family.
