    Happy Birthday Gordon!! Welcome back to the living. God is watching over you. He's just not ready for you yet. I really enjoyed reading your story. It was very humbling & spiritual. I wish you the best!

    A higher power? Someone put the defribulator and a doctor up in the sky for you to point at?

    Happy birthday Gord and congratulations on getting back to yourself - albeit, a good number of pounds lighter! I'd like to see these AEDs become cheaper to purchase so that restaurants, department stores and other gathering places could have them available. Wouldn't it be excellent if after finishing a CPR 1st Aid course, if all participants were given a coupon for a $100.00 or more discount off one of these devices. Of course for that to happen, there would have to be sponsors in each geographical region or one larger sponsors for larger regions. I suggest that many lives could be saved.

    Glad to hear you are doing well. My father was having surgery the day after you were admitted to hospital. We were in the waiting room by the ICU waiting for news on my father and we spoke to your family and learned of your ordeal. I always wondering how you were doing. Glad to hear you are on the mend.

    Great to see that you are in good spirits. Don't give up hockey!! The fact you have played for 45 years is probably why you live to share you're ordeal. Good Luck Big Fellow. Have fun in Vegas!

    Very nice to hear you are doing well again. Your story certianly is touching. Keep yourself in good shape and keep your stick on the ice. For everyone else out there, it doesn't hurt to get yourself involved in First Aid, CPR, & AED training. You may be in a situtation someday where you can use it. Having people around with this training and of course the equipment available can save a life. This story is the proof
