I got an e-mail from Shakey Pete that was a little disjointed, so I'll clean it up a bit for clarity, but here's what he said:
I am in the hospital, the morning after my last post, I had some kind of stroke attack. One of those awful things where I can't hardly make sentences. They did a big deal MRI and found that my left ventrical in my neck is way blocked. They're going to save that, and then try do get my speech back. I will be going into surgery, maybe tomorrow or the next day. I'll send more later.
If you're the praying type, this would probably be a good time.
I'll keep you posted.
Meanwhile, Pete, I tidied up your work area for you :-)
