    Elisa, as the days pass I want you to know that our thoughts and prayers for Adira, you, and your family do not. A unique community has been created here and it is not complete without your presence. There will always be a place at the table here with your name on it.

    As the initial commotion fades away too often people are left feeling awkward. What to say or not to say. What to bring up or to skirt around. The worst is when nothing is said. I am sure that I speak for everyone on here that when you are ready we are here for you.

    I don't know what to say in this kind of situation. It seems unreasonable to try and make someone feel better when the loss of a child is irreversibly devastating for the mom and the family. Naturally, we all want Elisa to get back to "normal" but I don't know if that is possible and maybe even egoistical of us. I guess we just have to go on realizing that things for Elisa will never be the same. That is just the way it is.

    Although life will never be the same, I'm slowly trying to return to a "normal" routine. I went back to work this past week, which wasn't too bad- I was really enjoying my time off, spending it with my 7 month old daughter, Anna.

    I try to live each day one day at a time- I'm thankful that I'm able to think about all of the great times I had with her and not dwell on the tradegy itself. I received a letter from the organ donation foundation today, but am currently in New Jersey visiting Nathan and won't get to read it until I get home tomorrow. I'll let everyone know what I find out about how the transplantations went.

    The State College Area High School Wrestling Team planted a weeping cherry tree at Adria's elementary on Thursday and during the speech, the head coach talked about how in the sport of wrestling you become family. And it's completely true.

    Again, thanks for all of your thoughts and prayer- I'll be back soon- Only a few more weeks until the season starts- I promise, you'll see me around.

    Better brush up on your Tetris skills or have you given up?
    I will smash your face into a car windshield and then take your mother, Dorothy Mantooth, out to a nice seafood dinner and never call her again!

    Tell me about it, this morning, I woke up and I shit a squirrel, but what I can't get is the damn thing is still alive. So now, I've got a shit covered squirrel running around my office and I don't know what to name it.

    You wish I've given up--- it will be all that sweeter when I beat your score after a four month layoff! Enjoy the last few days of being the "Champ."
