Health update

It has been awhile since I have done one these. First, the good news. I am still mobile. I can still eat though it is a challenge. The bad news? My speech is gone and my breathing is going fast.

So my plan is to go back to my home in Wisconsin and stay there until I die. If I live longer than the summer, I will be surprised but it would be okay with me to see the winter one more time.
