Harold’s in the Hospital

Read this old post, Harold’s Cabbage, in case you need reminding who our friend Harold is. He’s such a good friend, and such a character, he has his own category.

He’s recovering by the hardest from a rare condition that strikes about one in every 200,000 people. It’s called Guillain-Barre syndrome; a condition of the nervous system that paralyzes a person from their feet up. Luckily, he got to the emergency room when he could no longer move his legs or arms, but could still breathe.

He’ll be all right. But he’s a sorry sight and Buck and I feel so bad for him we don’t know what to do.

I’ll keep you posted.

    1. Thanks, Wally. We talked to him today and he’s doing better. It’s a slow process. The physical therapy folks at West Florida Rehab are working him hard and he says they’re helping him a lot. It was great to hear some timbre back in his voice.

    1. Thank you — I told him this morning on the phone that people as far away as Brazil are sending good thoughts his way. He couldn’t believe it, but was pleased.
