Mary Bichelmeyer was in Kentucky helping her sister. So Chuck stood in for her.
Guests were Bud Martley and Jerome Oberle.
Larry & Rosie Inman surprised all of us by coming in about 8:30 pm in disguise. Both wearing wigs. It took the crowd a little while to figure out who they were. Larry joined the band for a few songs.

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.
I spoke with Keith this morning. (He is now in room 487 icu.)
I was able to speak with him, although he was very subdued and his speech was labored and not easy to understand, so I didn’t keep him on the phone very long. I simply told him that we missed him, and that he was in our minds and prayers daily.
At the very least, he is alert and communicative. You can pass along to your email list whatever you feel is appropriate.
Just received notice from Keith’s minister at church, that Keith now has pneumonia, and they have taken him back to ICU.
Keith is now in ICU at Shawnee Mission Medical Center in Room 466. The address is: 9100 W 74th St., Shawnee Mission, KS 66204.
Please keep Keith & Pat in your prayers.
