Dear friends, 

I'm writing to you from the Sheba Hospital in Tel Hashomer, Israel, while sitting at the bedside of my mother...
 
It has been a very long week... Just days ago my mother has been fighting for her life in the ICU of the hospital of Tzfat, now she is starting to make some significant improvements in the best rehabilitation in Israel, which is most probably from the top places in the entire world.
 
While we know that this is going to be a long journey for my mother and the family, we are thankful to the Almighty for His kindness until now, and we continue to pray and make every effort to bring her to a complete recovery and full function.
 
My friend from Yeshiva, Rabbi Levi Gopin, the local Chabad Rabbi in this hospital, which is loved and respected by the entire staff and all the patients who know him, has been a tremendous help for the entire family in providing us with all we need, so we can support my mother through this challenging time.
 
I'd like to take this opportunity to thank the Vancouver Island Jewish community. Hundreds of people have sent their messages, blessings and offers to help. While I couldn't reply to each one individually; we want you to know how much it means to us. It has touched the heart of Chani and me to know of the support and care we have from this community through this difficult period.

What more could a mother ask for at a difficult time in her life than to have her children encouraging and supporting her. Your being there is a wonderful testament to her teaching, nurturing and loving character in raising her children.

Glad to hear your mother is better--things will improve a lot with the therapy and positive attitude on her part. There will be a lot of regression with the physiotherapy and rehabilitation. Courage.....
