    Good Vibes for Phil

    My brother Phil is a deadhead from way back -- made it to 95% of all dead shows from '87 to '90 and most of the west coast shows until Jerry passed in '95 (over 200 shows). Some of you might even know him. He's currently fighting for his life with stage 4 cancer and he could use your good vibes.

    For more information, search for Phil Burkett on the gofundme site, and thank you.

    That spammers

    That spammers will even post in a thread where we're vilifying them. I think that this one is especially egregious, given the theme of the thread and the spammer's solicitation for our prayers! That is just about as low as you can get. Isn't it? Time for Marye to break out the flamethrower, once again...

this from Gans hisself: "Hey all - thanks for the kind thoughts! I am in a hospital in Carson City, Nevada. It turned out not to be pericarditis, but a "mild to moderate" heart attack. Last night I had an angioplasty and I now have three stents in my heart. Had a long meeting with the cardiologist this morning. He expects I will make a more or less complete recovery. I woke up yesterday morning in Lee Vining CA, in a motel overlooking Mono Lake. My plan was to drive out into the Basin & Range to visit Berlin-Ichthyosaur State Park, but I felt kinda weird after breakfast and so I sat in my hotel room until checkout time, hoping the bellyache would pass. Still feeling pretty rocky, I decided to head for the nearest city rather than go ahead with my middle-of-nowhere plan. When I hit Carson City two hours later, I was not feeling much better so I went on into the ER. " more healing vibes and ++++ vibes for all! love&peace.

Thanks to all of you for your kind thoughts. We spoke at length with the cardiologist today, and he is confident that my recovery will be pretty close to 100%. I have been (for the most part) doing the right things, lifestyle-wise, for several years, but my genetic predisposition to heart disease means I have to start taking some meds. I had to cancel a few gigs, but I will be on my feet and ready to rock with the Reptiles at the Starry Plough in Berkeley on September 4 - extra poignant for me, since it is a memorial for our longtime partner Al Feldstein, who died of a heart attack on June 21.

Candy is sedated and on a ventilator which sounds worse than it is. This allows her body to rest and the machine actually forces more oxygen and medicine into her lungs. Her temperature is normal and the bacteria count is dropping . It will be a long journey however I feel more hopeful than yesterday. In speaking with the ER and ICU nurses this is the beginning of a Tidal wave of Flu to Pneumonia cases. By midnite they had admitted 5 other patients all under 55 with the same problem, Get your swine flu shots and stay on top of anyone feeling sick and not wanting to go to the doctor. Thanks to all our extended family! Love Bob and Candy And the road goes on forever.... BobbaLee

Well today we all including the wonderful staff were smiling a little-her oxygen level continues to rise and her temp. dropped a little more.It is strange how the terrible becomes routine-When I walk into the ICU unit I look at the monitors to see what her oxygen/blood, breathing and blood pressure rates are. As I suit up and put on my gloves and mask I ask the attending nurse how the latest X ray was and the PEEP level of the respirator. A week ago I knew nothing of these terms or what the numbers meant. Now I ask as casually as I would if I asking for cream in a cup of coffee. It is surreal. I am looking at ( this a wild guess) thousands of dollars of trained professionals per hour in the ICU, millions of dollars worth of equipment and medicines. In one ICU in a hospital that 4.

I just read my post of Oct 5 and today it seems so long ago. By the 7th Candy's situation was getting worse the H1N1 was still showing up in tests her white cell count was low and her oxygenination level was slowly dropping. The Doctors told me to to be prepared for the worse and call the kids home. That afternoon the doctor in the ICU in charge of infectous diseases asked a friend at the CDC and The FDA to release an experimental anti-viral drug. It stops the virus from reproducing. They flew it down by courier from Atlanta and that afternoon they started administering it. Now it was literally a matter of keeping her alive long enough to allow her body to kill the H1N1 off. Sunday and Monday were tough I sat by her through much of the day holding her hand. Monday afternoon her oxygen level began to pick upBy Tuesday morning her temp had dropped her oxygen level increased even more. Tuesday afternoon the doctors and staff thought her lungs were sounding better. The medicine had worked. Each day has shown an improvement. She is not out of the woods yet but I think We are real close to saying she has beaten the H1N1 and the pneumonia. Thanks all for all of your love and thoughts.
