    Im wathing "nightline" they read the letter by Randall McClure, very sad.. how hard they tried to beat through walls, he sharing his oxygen ,, and than all accepting their fate, saying a prayer, writing letter- than in silence one by one saw the men fall asleep and fall over-- and than himself losing conscious.

    It is a miracle to me Randal is still alive--- and amazing that after all he went through he's doing so well. I really feared after weeks in the coma and the prgress released at one point ' that he was biting on his tube, like that was extreme progress that he would be left like my brother in law Steve, who had the aneurysm rupture- with little memory,unable to move, extensive brain damage...
    Its wonderful , although he has suffered brain damage that Randal has came so far, and still improving- im so happy for him, that he can walk, communcate, talk and have memory.. thank God for that.
