Jerry has taken a bit of a bad turn in the last couple of days. He has pneumonia an infection. Also, the pain from the surgery has been difficult to manage since the staff don’t want him on narcotics when he has pneumonia. J.E. is en route to St. Louis for an unknown amount of time. Hopefully Jerry will make it through this crisis soon – I fear his spirits are low right now.
Just a quick post this morning from Minneapolis. Front page news everywhere is the bridge collapse of I-35W in downtown–four confirmed dead, sixty injured, and twenty still missing, as of this writing. A very sad scene here. Jen and I and our friends and family are all accounted for, though it’s hard to call that good news. More news will undoubtedly come from this catastrophe.
Thanks, Ned, for calling last night, and J.E. and Liz for your kind messages this morning. I hope all is well with you all.
