"I didn't expect it and I didn't ask for it but it was certainly a very nice thing to do," Colyer told the Cincinnati Enquirer yesterday about the pleasant surprise waiting in his mailbox when he was released from the hospital. Colyer -- a 28-year-old nursing student who was nearly killed according to the report -- had undergone reconstructive surgery on his face and still has a hole in his neck where doctors inserted a breathing tube during the operation.
