Jerry Cormier:(7-3-18 rh) Earlier in this year Jerry was diagnosed with esophageal cancer. In May he underwent surgery for removal of a portion of his esophagus. It was repaired by pulling his stomach up in some fashion. The surgery was a success and he has been at home recovering. Today we visited with Jerry by phone and found he was doing great. The feeding tube he had was recently removed and he is now on a regular diet with limitations. He expects to be fully recovered in the near future. Prayers are answered.
R.C Horn (7-9-18 db) Received a call from R.C.Horn this date and learned that he is still up in ARK. and just turned 80yrs old and doing pretty good. Still rides his motorcycle when weather permits and still likes to travel. Will be coming to Houston next month to visit family. He has given up raising wolves. We covered a good bit of the old days and had some good laughs and memories. Reminds me to call some of my old partners. How about some of y'all out there, catching up with some of your old partners who are out of town or state, and catch them up on local goings on and then let us know how they are doing.

Fred Eicholtz: (7-27-18 pk) I just received a text message from Judy Eichholtz that Fred was at Memorial Hermann hospital earlier with a bad UTI and kidney stones last week and the UTI has returned with a vengeance. He is currently at St Lukes downtown. No oral antibiotics available to treat this type bacteria. When he gets to go home Judy will probably have to administer an IV. They are currently administering IV antibiotics at the hospital and depending on how well they work will determine when he is able to go home.
UPDATE (7-30-18 pk) We talked with Judy Eichholtz earlier today and she said they have identified the bacteria that had gone to the blood stream in Fred. She said they are now treating him with the correct antibiotics and they hope to possibly release him from St. Lukes on Wednesday.
