Jim saw Keith

Stopped in to see Keith. He was asleep, which is normal his wife Pat says. His lung Dr. was there doing some check ups. They had performed lung surgery and removed fluids as he had encountered an infection. He sleeps constantly and communication is not there if he wakes up. Pat regained me from the BKL.
