Our HW friend, Richard, is in ICU for a heart attack and we are sending our love and prayers for him. He went in for a stone issue when he suffered the episode. Probably a huge blessing that he was at the hospital when it happened. He is conscious and will undergo an angiogram tomorrow.
For those who don't know him, his handle here is Smilingoldcoot. He was diagnosed a Gleason 10. He was treated with combination proton/IMRT/HT in Jacksonville. I met him there with his lovely wife.
Peace to you Richard and Debbie! You have our love and prayers.
