Dave Bear is in recovery in the ICU and doing pretty well. He's still very uncomfortable, to say the least, but all the posts on this forum have done him a world of good. Keep sending your get well notes, just don't expect an immediate reply. He's trying to reply, but he only has his phone so it is really difficult and taxing. He just sent me this note so all would understand:
I need to take a break from staring at this phone screen, my eyes are burning and it isn't doing the headache pain any favors either. I was hoping to reply to all of my messages but it appears not. If people come on later and wonder why, could you please explain for me if you don't mind.
