Just wanted to post an update.
Just went to see John, he was smiling as usual. He is only in ICU at the moment because they are waiting on a brace, as soon as they get that, (hopefully today) he will be moved into a room. They have been told he will probably be off work for three months, but he will be okay.
Please keep the Boutte's in your prayers for a speedy recovery.
Several have asked what you can do. Because this will be a long haul, it would be great if each month several people can pitch in to help with food, bills, etc. I'm sure it would be appreciated. We have all heard many hands make for light work. If we all pull together we can help John get through this time only worrying about getting better.
