Just talked to Dirk & he is back in the hospital in Fort Myers.

Can't seem to shake whatever he has had for the last week or two.

Say a prayer for him please.

Mark

Hi! For those of you who don't know who Dirk is, he is known as Route 66. Dirk is a very popular guy in the IRV2 forums. He will be in our prayers. Paul

Just spoke to Dirk and he's at least been able to rest a bit....
Expects to possibly be discharged in the morning, depends on some test results.

He is grateful for your prayers and thankful for all your concern.

A special thanks from me to the resident Amigo there in Cypress Woods as well....

Just call me a "taxi on demand"...glad to be of assistance.I hope to be able to pick him up tomorrow and get him home. As it is, he has only two days to recover back at Cypress Woods before the Amigo's party at Paul and Jill's place in Pelican Lake on Sunday. Come one, come all, we are expecting you.

We will all be disappointed if he is not able to attend. He may also be the only scrapple donor.

I picked him up from the hospital this afternoon and he stated he was feeling better than at any other time in the past three weeks since he has been under the weather.

Hoping to see him rally in time for the Amigos party at Pelican on Sunday afternoon.

Thanks for all the support and prayers as that always helps.

Thanks to Chuck for so graciously offering his help.

Still feeling good, and I hope it lasts.

It's good to be home.

Hi Dirk,
It's good to have you back. You have been missed. Take it easy now, you don't want to miss the Scrapple fest in Naples.

Thanks all.

It's good to be here.

As a matter of fact, it's good to be anywhere!
