    Your good thoughts and vibes needed, please

    My step-father, Norman "Glen" Peterson, a HUGE Vikes fan like me, has been on kidney dialysis the past couple of months. He just turned 78, and he's in a little bit of failing health. He was sleeping this afternoon and called his wife (my mother-in-law) into the room, saying he was too weak to get out of bed and she should call 911. They came and took him to the hospital where he is right now. My wife went there a little while ago. Not sure of his condition (I assume it's not life-threatening at this point), but I am sure he and all his family, in addition to me and my wife's, would appreciate the good thoughts and prayers of everyone.

    This guy is one of the nicest guys I have EVER met. He was a lifer in the Navy, serving just at the end of WWII. He is a family man, and he lost his wife of many (50+) years several years ago. My wife's mother, her first husband and he and his first wife were neighbors and best friends for many years until they both lost their spouses. They found a life together and got married last year. Now his health is failing.

    So anyway, everyone's thoughts and prayers would be appreciated.

    LLnP and lots of good energy for Glen!


    Personally, I don't think there is intelligent life on other planets. Why should other planets be any different from this one?

    Keep the faith. I'll be hoping for the best, although I'm sure it will be fine.

    Good luck friend.

    Update - my wife just called. He doesn't remember being taken in to the hospital. He's in intensive care right now. He did lose consciousness, apparently. He has fluid buildup on his lungs. The doctors don't think it's his heart. He's being kept there overnight, obviously. Will keep everyone updated.

    Shock,




    Sorry to hear the bad news, hopefully he will pull thru this tough time feeling better than before.





    If he's half as nice as your wife, he's got to be one hell of a nice guy for sure.





    Me and my family send our best wishes to
    and prayers to Glen,
    for a fast recovery...







    I LOVE THE SMELL OF VICTORY IN THE MORNING AIR.
