Freud, thanks for the update, BTW. Gear Grinder Bob Webb is also in the hospital with fluid on a lung and some infection they are treating. Will keep you posted.

I saw Jack this morning, he looked good to me, he has lost weight which he needed in my opinion. He didn't know whether he was going to do any physical therapy today yet. He said many of the " garage" have been by and he was glad to see them. JD

Is he at home or still in the therapy center?

Anyone that goes to see him, mention me and confuse him somemore.

Give Nita a hug and take her to lunch.

Things are lookin' UP.

This came Thursday.

Things are looking good.  Jack has sat up to eat his meals 3 times now and has gone to the bathroom.  He needs his walker and wheelchair, but is noticeably stronger.  He has lost another 6 pounds this last week.  No clue why.  He is eating everything they give him.  I hope the doctor will notice this rapid weight loss and try to slow it down a bit.  I’m concerned that he will lose muscle mass too.  He still sleeps a lot, but PLEASE WAKE HIM when you come to visit.  He sleeps too much.  Dr. doesn’t believe he is depressed, so we need to stimulate him and help him gain interest in “things”.  Thanks so much for your support.  God Bless……………………….n

I'll see if I can talk to him.

No doubt, it's because all of us have our fingers crossed.

This came today, Monday March 6

 

Spoke to the NEW doctor, Dr. Hadi.  Today was Dr. Hadi’s first day on the job. She seems to be very sharp and has a good bedside manner.   Jack is progressing and now weighs 242 pounds.  I was concerned about the rapid weight loss and asked about tests for the thyroid and pancreas.  They have already done thyroid tests and all is well.  Jack does not demonstrate any symptoms to warrant tests of the pancreas.  Dr. Hadi said she thought he was doing very well and wants to keep him a little longer, maybe until the end of the week.  Jack still needs to work on his mobility.  They will send him home when he “levels out” on his improvement.  Then, they will send a physical therapist to the house for a short time, maybe only 8 sessions.  Better than nothing.  I’ll let you know his release date when it comes.

 

God Bless,

Nita

Still a long ways to go but it's lookin' better for Jack.

I'm overjoyed.

This was received Monday March 13th. Things are looking much better.

Jack has been found medically sound.  He is still very weak and will need to continue physical therapy.  Therapists will start Wednesday at 10 a.m

Jack is being released Tuesday.  George Steele will be bringing him home.  Thank you George.

  The Garage will be open Wednesday at 8p.m.  Please note the time.  I will not be opening earlier than 8.  I will have something sweet to eat and coffee of course.  If Jack does not come out to the garage, you are invited to visit him in his bedroom and then sit around in the garage and visit with one another.  Hope to see you soon………………….Nita

I'll try to contact Nita and let her know

about the crew from Conn. I sure hope

the old bugger gets well faster.

I should start looking for cheap airfares to go see him.

He's gaining and that's all we can hope for.

Thanks Nita.

Jack's Garage is open on a restricted schedule.

Jack is improving and back in his chair to

council the masses. I can't imagine how

much Nita has had to do to get Jack back in

the main stream but she has accomplished it.

Bless You, Nita.
