Thank you all and every one of you once again for all the well wishes, prayers and all the unprecedented support you have shown and expressed to Peter and I after his almost tragically ending traumatic fall while working at the parking lot on the low voltage lighting wiring at the top of the post towards the end of August.
We have to also thank again for amazing, fast and professional response of local Cortez Road West Manatee County Fire Rescue Station No. 2 EMS and their responders as well as fire fighters who acted under difficult weather conditions and got Peter into the Blake hospital in a record time and worked on him while getting him there. Big thank you to Dr Lee and his team in ER of the Blake Hospital, their ICU who were also amazing in responding to his Trauma.
I am very pleased to report that all the prayers were and are helping in Peter's healing process. He is improving. Unfortunately, the extend of injuries and additionall medical issues that surfaced were severe enough that the healing process is relatively slow. However, Peter, although in a lot of pain and discomfort continues to work as much as his pain and fatigue allowes him to do in the restaurant as well as attending and dealing with associated problems with the restaurant surroundings and he pushes forward as much as he can. Peter is a fighter, he is not a quitter. We are taking much longer then we would like and I am sure that all of you would like Fire&Stone to be up and running, and believe me that the unprecedented response and outreach of well over 3200 people after this tragic event just keeps driving Peter to keep going. His broken ribs are still very painful. We are progressing, even though some of you that pass us by are wondering about Fire&Stone. Please let me assure you, we are going steady now and making a huge headway. It is a big place and a lot of little things need to be attended to. And the fact is, unfortunately, It is only the two of us doing all the work. So please, let me ask you for a little more patience with our reopening. (Believe us, being patient does not go very well with either Peter or myself). But Peter is definitely on the upside and doing better, working on opening Fire&Stone for all of us.
Thank you for reading this update. Radka
