Here's to a speedy recovery and learning to use the new leg.
I'm sure he will have some great stories to tell of the whole ordeal.

Just got off the phone with Seajay. I can say that his spirits are much improved. He has been back in the hospital for the past 3 days while they did some checking, or whatever it is they do. He is being released tomorrow to go back to the rehabilitation center. He stated that he was told he would be there for about 3 weeks while they make him a prosthetic.

He was "talking like a sailor" again so maybe the "peg leg" would suit him.

When he answered the phone, and I'm sure you will understand, I said, "Happy Father's Day, Mutha,"

He's going to be fine. We were talking about adaptive hand controls so he's already thinking of driving his fine cars.

Happy trails.

Thanks for asking Scott. Seajay has been on my mind the past couple days so your post prompted me to call him, less I forget again.

He is still in rehab and it is about 8 miles from the house. Willa picks him up and takes him home almost daily where he spends some time. I think the time spent is when Willa gets tire of the OF.

He still has one problem they are working on and that is something in the middle of the knee incision where the amputation was - or something like that. The have a pump on it and the Dr. stated it should be about 3 weeks and it will be fine. At that time they will start working with the prosthetic, getting the stump ready for fitting. Believe me, Seajay is going to walk as he is very determined. Besides, he has a Marine as his therapist, what more can I say.

I'm going to try and call him more frequently and update this as I can.

Thanks.

Thanks for the update, Wayne. Tell the old sailor his buddy the Army lawyer is thinking about him.

Chatted with Seajay the other day and it was he and Willa's Anniversary. Talk about great timing. The guy is an epitome of strength and fight. I was amazed at his optimism and outlook and he is planning on returning to the lifestyle and travel. We promised one another a lie swapping or two over a mutual campfire sometime in our close futures. I envy those of you who know and have met the old salt in person and I too look forward to that eventually happening.

He'll be back and swabbing the deck with all of us soon.

I also spoke with Seajay, and Willa. Yesterday was their wedding anniversary. I asked Willa how she ever put up with him and she replied that he's a ***** cat - or some words to that extent. She also suggest that they should travel to Niagara and renew the vows. Now that's love, right.

As for Seajay, well, he's still the reprobate. (just kidding Seajay, just kidding)

As for his progress, there is a "wound" on his knee. They have a suction machine on it and Seajay states it is getting better by the day. In no time he'll be fit for a prosthetic. I asked him to ask the doctor if he could have a ladies prothetic so I could.......never mind, but he did get a chuckle out of the question.

As Possum stated, he his in good spirits, considering what he has been through. If we get a chance to travel east this fall I'll make it a mandatory stop along the way to visit him again. we are of the fortunate people who have had the opportunity to spend a couple days with Seajay and willa.

Hopefully Denise and I will get some time to visit with SeaJay and Willa within the next little while and get to kibitz with them face to face. You know something Wayne, Willa reminds me of your DW and I am sure my DW will remind you of Willa. I think the three of us are very lucky old retired armed forces types. I had a good chuckle at the comments your wife was making the other day. It would be just great to sit and swap lies er stories around a bonfire some cool evening.
