Inside SDJW/ Staff Box

Occasional contributor Gert Thaler reports: "After nearly three weeks in Sharp Hospital I am now home and gaining strength and feeling better each day. So many wonderful friends need to be thanked for their Shana Tovah wishes plus the flowers, numerous cards and lots of e mails to the hospital which were graciously delivered each day.(What a great way to let someone in the hospital know they are thought of without phone calls).  I just want to express my thanks for all the kindnesses plus the wonderful staff at Sharp and the new wing of the hospital with its all private rooms and an extra couch for family if needed."
