HELLO ALL...this is Cub Reporter Kate, Chuck's daughter reporting on the status of Chuck today! He's been hospitalized since last Friday afternoon, and after being poked and prodded in ALL the embarassing places, he's scheduled for surgery tomorrow afternoon. Chuck asked me to update his J-land friends from time to time...He's anxious as anyone 83 years old would be at the prospect of surgery, but he has a wide support system of family, friends and J land readers that give him the courage to carry on. We're hoping he'll feel lots better after recovering from this event, hopefully better than he really has in a long time. However...he'll be out of J-land commission for awhile...probably at least two weeks. (Probably JUST enough time for me to finally learn his RIGHT CLICK mouse configuration.)
Here's his quote: "If Alan Alda can survive a gastric resection while on vacation in Chile, I ought to be okay in Merced. At least I am less scared than I was."
I'm sure you will be wishing him well, and I'll try to get your responses printed out and taken to him frequently. He'll be out of it for a few days, we know for sure.
Keep on bloggin' Kate
