    Concern for Scuba Steve

    Hi Everyone,

    So glad we finally heard from Michelle, Jersy OT, as she posted on her blog February 4. BUT, now I am concerned for Scuba Steve who we were all encouraging as he was off to see Dr. Hey in North Carolina for a consultation for his relentless pain. I think about him every day and wonder how he made out. If you see this Steve, please be in touch. We are all concerned for you and your family.
