Bee's Health Problems Becoming More Serious

Thursday, October 22nd, 2009

Dear Friend of Bee,

Jim D’Entremont and I arrived back from Lisbon just a few minutes ago and I am very jet lagged.

We kept in close touch with Bee while we were away. He was finally allowed to go home from the hospital on the evening of October 12th, the day we left. He seemed a bit better, but then developed a cold near the end of the week. This triggered a severe asthma attack. (Bee has suffered from asthma since childhood.) Finally, last night his partner David took him to the hospital because he was having trouble breathing. He is still there. He has been diagnosed with bronchitis and possibly pneumonia. He will probably be moved into intensive care.

We are all very worried about him.

Bee Update

Monday, October 12th, 2009

Dear Friend of Bee,

I just talked to him. He has had many tests — blood work, MRI, ultrasound. A CAT scan is next.

Fortunately, his blood work doesn’t look that bad. So they next want to make sure it’s not appendicitis. The CAT scan should tell that that.

We are leaving presently for the airport. My next posting will be from Portugal.


Bee is in the Hospital

Dear Friend of Bee’s,

I’m sorry to report that Bee is in Winchester Hospital. He had a bad night last night and David took him in around five this morning. We just talked with him but he was taken away for tests. We will keep you updated.

Unfortunately, Jim D’entremont and I are leaving for vacation for ten days this afternoon. But we will be in contact by phone and I will post more information while we’re away.
