Surgeon will do his thing for Mardi Gras, 13 February; I expect to be back watching (not tending) the home fires for the weekend. I am eternally indebted to all of you who are praying for me.  I expect to have my angel riding on my shoulder throughout the exercise and I have every confidence that all will go well.

On 11/12/17 I tripped over a cinderblock in my backyard, fell, and broke my left hip. I was released from rehab on 12/15/17 and am still undergoing in home and later on outpatient rehab. I’m told that it will be quite a while before I’m fully functional.

Here is the latest I know about Gary.  On new years day he was transported to the memory side of a new assisted living facility in Jacksonville.  On the next day he fell out of bed and broke his big toe and was transported back to the Orange Park Medical Center.  As of today I don't know if he has been returned to the assisted living facility.  From what his son, Ken, has told me it is a very beautiful place where he has his own room.  Ken has decorated it with photos, knick knacks, etc from his home to make it a more friendly environment and perhaps help with his memory.  The part of the facility he is in is devoted to people with memory difficulties.  The name of the place is: BENTON HOUSE AT OAKLEAF, 417 Oakleaf Plantation Pkwy, Jacksonville, FL 32222.  Phone 904 217-5916.  The last time we visited with him about a month ago he didn't know either Linda or me but Ken says he still recognizes him sometimes.  Its sad to see a good friend who was once so witty and vibrant have their memory deteriorate like this but he is still our friend.  We hope to see him again later this month.

Morrey's daughter Martie has informed me that her dad has been in and out of the hospital since October.  In fact, he is currently back in the hospital with heart and circulation issues. 

Morrey doesn't do email or have a cell phone but you can check on his status through Martie at  Martie lives in Vallejo, California.
