LCpl Pete, USMC - An Update

Pete's OK! His doctors still don't know what's wrong with him, but he seems to be nearly back to normal.

What happened: while running at camp he developed severe chest pains, passed out, and stopped breathing. It was not a heart attack, but the cause has yet to be determined. He was in and out of conciousness until he fully awoke at Landstuhl a week after the incident.

I think it was the damned cigars I sent him. Anywho, this is Pete and his beautiful wife. He's going to be in town at least a few more days while tests are done, so I may get to dote on him some more.

Karen & Dwight, two of Pete's most dedicated supporters, flew out from Wisconsin to meet him. They are really terrific people who I'm very glad to have met.
