I had called the Dibbles yesterday to inquire as to Bill's progess & received a call back from Nancy this evening. Bill is still in the hospital (39 days so far) & they're HOPING he might be well enough to come home in about another week or two. He's been extremely weak & is still unable to talk. He appreciates the concern from us. Nancy said he's on anti-depressants as the long recover is taking it's toll on his mind/sense of well-being. He's had it pretty rough.

Just wanted to let you all know the latest.

We miss you, Bill!

Many prayers sent from the Reitz household. Hang in there Bill and I'll expect a good report from you when you get out of that hospital. Heck, I'd be depressed if I was in a hospital for that long too. Anyhoo, we are praying for you Bill.

Merry Christmas, even though you won't see this until later.

Thanks for the update, Gary. Much appreciated.

Hope all gets better soon and a full recovery. I don't know him, but look forward to reading some posts and getting his view on things too. Thoughts to you Bill and your family.

Hey Bill, get the hell out of there.
Political Correctness...defined

A doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.
