>From Matt Robinson:
I am offically leaving to go back to the USA tomorrow morning. I will be going to the Cleveland Clinic on Monday the 29th, and hopefully this will lead me back to full health once again. Since March 1st, when I had my first surgery, so many people have helped me through these tough times.
I am in good spirits and have plenty of hope because of this.
So many people have helped that I don't even know so for those of you who have remained anonymous...thank you.
There are many also that need to be acknowledged: Paul Hussey  (Global Village Center), Kim Mi-Ju (Joong Ang Daily), The students at Suwon Foreign Language High School, Alexandria, Phillies, HBC, VFW, Seoul Players, Bundang Social Club, Aussie Bar, Berlin, Indigo/Orange Tree, Stompers, Eden, Big Rock, Dr. John Linton & Severance Hospital...if I have forgetten anyone I apologize.
I also have to pay my respects to all my friends, old and new, that visited in the hospital and brought me food and entertainment. Those who spent time organizing the different events and fundraising efforts.
Leaving Korea like this is very difficult, but I realize that it is the only necessary option for me right now. Once again you have all helped so much and I can never truly express my gratitude, or maybe I am now...I don't know. I hope that you all continue to enjoy your time in Korea and I hope in time maybe I'll see many of you here again at some point because I am not getting to leave on my own terms. I will miss you all, but I will update this sight on my recovery process.
