Amir posted this from Tom

Quote:
[Eileen, Peter, etc.; I cannot send Email to some of these lists from

this account so please forward for me, thanks. This is the first time I

have been either technically able to connect from the hospital or

coherent enough to connect at all once home, hence the lack of any

communications before this time.]


After suffering a severe seizure over the XMas holidays I have just been

released from the hospital (yesterday). The seizure resulted in burst

fractures in some of my mid-lower spinal vertebrae in addition to

cracked ribs which I've been told would have led to permanent paralysis

from the waist downward. So they locked me away in an ICU for the last N

weeks.


I am now living in an upper body brace and am pretty heavily drugged

with morphine, vicaden, Librium, and other stuff. I am told that this

was partially due to osteoporosis plus bad diet and too much stress

recently. I'll be pretty used up in physical therapy and drug/dietary

supplements over the next few weeks, and although I expect to be on line

a lot more now, physically I'll be pretty scarce.


My reason for this Email is to apologize to anyone and everyone I may

have let down during the CES lead-in and execution window. I am really

really sorry if I dropped any balls that led to problems for Broadcom,

the HPA, the IBC Council, or any members thereof. Monster people - I am

also really sorry I couldn't make your concert - I tried to fly from the

hospital direct last night but the answer from both my wife and the

doctors was NO. John Ive - I am also very very sorry about our trip.


My profound and sincere apologies. Please let me know what I can do to

help make things up or help in any way during the post CES follow-up

window.


Thank you and please accept my belated apologies - Tom.

I thought the news deserved better then just a lost post in a thread.


Tom, I am sure I can speak for everyone when I say I hope that you get well soon and regain your strength.


But since I don't like putting words in others mouths and I am not the most eloquent. Here is a thread so everyone can let you know what they feal.



Again, good luck with your recovery.


Anthony

Tom,


My best wishes to you for a speedy recovery. Take plenty of rest, watch some HD movies and get yourself recovered. Your company and your work will be there to greet you (as well as this format war).

Tom,


No need to apologize -- just concentrate on getting yourself well soon!!


I, for one, always appreciated your informative posts and I'm sure you

will be back here before you realize it.



God bless,


Scott


PS: Mods - Any chance on making this a stickie? Thanks.

@Tom, I have one of your posts in my favourites which I'm often using as a reference. You're one of the guys who make the Industry Insiders Thread worthwhile and I hope you'll get well again soon. All the best!

Get well soon, Tom. My best wishes for a quick and full recovery.



Thanks Amir for forwarding Tom's email. Quite touching, that email from Tom.


Thanks to Anthony for starting this thread.


Mods, can we make this sticky? This can be our get-well-soon card to Tom if nothing else.
