Default Email from a friend, yesterday....

Anna and I will be heading for Wilmington, NC tomorrow morning (Tuesday). We have learned that Jim has taken a turn for the worse and is not expected to live. I will take my computer but have no idea if any service is available at the late parents' home. We will probably be gone for a week. Fingers crossed....

Jim hurt his fingers one day, and arm on another, rebuilding his parent's house .....and so went to hospital and they did not clean out the wound properly so it got infected, then too boot a day/two later he gets pneumonia, age 72 looks like bad news.....Larry and Anna and Jim moved in together, Jim/Anna are married for years, but sold their house in the Md. burbs of DC, and moved to Shenandoah Valley.....

too boot now no one knows jack shit about Jim's papers or wills/etc....much less bank accounts.....lovely....

I hope your friend sees a full recovery. It's strange how sometimes such small little mistakes can turn out life threatening.
