Lee Update 4/12/19 Second

Saw Lloyd this evening. He looks good and sounds mostly like his old self. Certainly does appreciate all the well wishes and prayers. Delivered a card to him. He appreciated very much the kind thoughts. It was great seeing him! He is looking forward to Branson!

Any wanting to send him a card or note can PM me for an address and I will get those to him.

SoonerSSR Another update on Lloyd Swanson (Trike Rider). Lloyd had been experiencing shortness of breath and some chest discomfort recently. This prompted his doctor to bring him back to the hospital for tests to check for possible causes. When they ran the tests, they found that he had several blockages in his arteries that would require immediate action in order for these to be corrected. I stopped by the hospital today, and they have just completed the insertion of several stints (not sure of the number). The doctor felt that everything went as well as could be expected and with any luck he would be released to go back to the re-hab facility to continue his protocol for stroke recovery. A big sigh of relief for his family and everyone that knows them. Please keep Lloyd, Eileen and their family in your thoughts and prayers as they work to help him to recover from his condition.

Visited Lloyd and Eileen yesterday. Had a room full of family and really good upbeat spirits! His sons and wives are making plans, I think already have reservations, to attend the International Rally. One of his sons is going to drive Lloyd over in his SSR and his daughter-in-law is going to drive another car with Eileen aboard. The other son and wife are planning to join them in Branson. Lloyd’s mobility is improving daily.
Please keep the cheerful notes and cards coming.

Lee A large group of Lloyd and Eileen’s SSR Fanatics buddies and spouses took advantage of some awesome late winter weather today and paid him a surprise visit. We had eight SSRs, including Lloyd’s car. One of his sons got it all washed and spiffed up. It was great seeing him and it sure seemed like he enjoyed the surprise!

He waved hello to all his Fanatic buddies. See the attached photo.

A bunch of of us stopped in to check on LLoyd and Eileen this week. He had a rough couple of days midweek, but this afternoon was doing much better. Therapy is progressing and his typical upbeat spirit is no doubt a key. Eileen is doing as well as can be expected. Long days for her going back and forth, though. We will be spreading out the visits next week so he has someone checking multiple times and he gets more visit time. He said some days it gets lonely so, rather than a group visit, we’ll coordinate days as we can. He enjoys company and BS’n. Hand delivered one card to him today too.

Anyone wanting to send a card or note can PM me for an address. I will hand deliver these, unopened, to them.

Daverobertson Thanks for the continuing updates. As was already said,knee mail continues for them both and their families.

Several of us checked on Lloyd and Eileen at various times this past week. Therapy is progressing well! His wheel chair, he said, isn’t as fast as his “R”. It’s also not near as attractive, IMO. So all that it is some motivation to get the H out of there! Sure hope so. There will be need to move to another facility near the months end...rules don’t you know 🧐. Family will be looking at options soon. Next week some more of us will be checking in as well and post updates as appropriate.

Any wanting to send a card or note of well wishes to Lloyd and Eileen can send me a PM and I will reply with an address.

Best to all,
