Sorry for not keeping up with the postings over the last several months, but I come today with the news we've all been waiting for.  After a year and a half battle, Jeff came home for good today!

Thank you all for all your support!

Thanks so much for keeping us abreast of Jeff's situation.

Hopefully he'll be able to brew again someday soon.  :)

Great news indeed.

How much did he recover?
How is his speech and memory?
Does he still need assistance?
More info please.

He has survived one nasty virus.  Hope he will continue to recover. Being home will be so good after all the time away.

That's great news!  I hope we see Jeff posting soon and that, in time, he can get back to brewing.
