“When I was speaking recently with a journalist from the London Times I said, ‘I don’t think Lou will ever fully recover.’ We were not talking about his physical condition. Lou is in the best physical shape in years – strong and energetic. He has a wonderful new life now and can do anything he wants. We were talking about how a traumatic event – a surgery or a calamity – can change your life. These things make you reevaluate everything in your life. And while they mark you forever, these traumas can be extremely positive. And I think for Lou this is especially true. He gets a chance to see things with enormous perspective. We couldn’t be happier at the way this turned out.”
