I'm happy to report that he's doing well. The hospital has sent him home after shooting him full of anti-biotics for difficulties in his legs, due to imperfect heart performance. They won't let him drive yet, but he's fully mobile inside his apartment, and he tells me that his girlfriend has moved in temporarily and is taking very good care of him.

Given that his difficulties are heart-centric, I was tempted to ask if it were wise to have his girlfriend in situ, so to speak, but then I thought better of it. Some things are, after all, just none of my business.........

In any event, he tells me that the plug-in, wall socket battery charger for his laptop has proceeded to "go south," so to speak (no offense intended), and he's unable for the moment to acquire a new one, what with his being forbidden to drive and being otherwise non-ambulatory outside of his apartment. He assured me, however, that friends will be supplying him with a new one shortly (whatever that means), and that he'll be back on the forum first thing.

He sounded crisp, alert, responsive and downright humorous, all of which is good news. He did allow that he won't be able to make it to the SE Shoot due to mobility and stamina problems, both of which are completely understandable, and sends his
profound regrets.

Will be leaving Port Allen, LA for TX and points west mementarily. More later.

    Good news- - - -thanks for the heads-up. Sam mentioned that his doctors had some heart-related concerns during the checkup he had just before we met for a meal a few weeks ago, so it looks like they're keeping a close eye on things. Maybe he can give us an update on his situation before long.

    Thanks for the update Vic.
    Hope you recover Sam and stay around for a lot longer. I and others in my age group are too young to start taking over the role of becoming a 'Senior Curmudgeon'...... Hell, I dont even know what it means..............:jester:
