Update 19 Oct...
I spoke with his son Ken this evening and found that he was moved to the Life Care Rehabilitation center associated with the Orange Park, FL, Medical Center.  He is in room 223A, but Ken says that he is very confused.  He does recognize people and is able to read but his conversations don't make much sense.  He is supposed to be in this facility for 100 days, perhaps longer if his diagnosis should change.

Update 9 Oct...
The latest from his son, Ken, is that he seems to not have any pain, he is sleeping a lot and he is not on life support.  He just spoke with the surgeon and it looks like the procedure will be done on Wednesday.  They will numb him with a spinal and have to cut the ball off the femur which will shorten his leg by about 3 inches.  This is called a girdle stone procedure.  He couldn't survive the general anesthesia so his pelvis won't be repaired.  He will require a special shoe but it is believed he will eventually be able to walk.  I will send updates when available.

FYI our friend and fellow AG, Gary K. Titus AGC USN Ret, is in critical condition in the Orange Park, FL hospital following a car wreck.  He has a broken femur & pelvis and requires surgery within the next couple of days but underlying medical conditions make surgery very risky and he has a low probability of survival.  Your prayers for him and his family will be greatly appreciated.

Just dropping in to say hello and let you know the latest on my health condition.  I'm still going through chemo and doing well.  My tumor is shrinking which is good news.  Dr says it will never go away completely but he is very pleased with my progress.  I'm still driving and running errands but very tired which is normal. I had lunch with Eve Muscari yesterday.  It was great seeing her and catching up on   everything.  She called me this morning and updated me on Ann Salvato passing away.  So sad to hear that.  May she rest in peace. I plan to attend her service on Sept 9th.  Hoping to see many of you there.

Sending my love and good thoughts.

Doris
