Damn.
I missed this worrying news... that's what happens when you're no longer a true regular.

I keep my fingers crossed for a complete recovery.
All the best to you, Karl!

I too missed this terrible news until now.

Hoping for a full and as-speedy-as-possible recovery.

Karl's recovery fund on FaceBook went up to $5,700 last night.

He also made a comment on "the amazing retrainable brain."    8)

Let's hope and pray that it stays amazing and retrainable!   0:)

I've missed this whole unhappy sequence of events until today. Oh what a shock. Over the years I've had the odd phone conversation with Karl, the occasional exchange via snail mail, a few emails ... but most of our links have been via GMG. No matter: by any definition he is a good friend on the other side of the water, and my goodness I wish him and Maria well in these tough times.

Cato - thank you ever so much for keeping the communication lines open. I'll send you a PM.

Maria sent the following message this morning, part of which I will quote:

Quote


Karl is feeling better and those 3-4 weeks of a high risk of further brain swelling and bleeding are passing. He'll have a long way to recovery and will need to work very hard. Hopefully the left hand and arm will learn to function. The neurologist at the I.C.U. told me that his left arm will never recover.... but there is a little progress and let's see how things will go.


(My emphasis above)

Also...

After fighting with assorted bureaucrats  8)  , Maria has convinced them to add one week to Karl's recuperation and intensive therapy.

So that is good news!

And she again is very grateful to everyone for donating to the recovery fund for Karl

So keep those donations coming!

For those not able to donate via FaceBook, Maria has also started a GoFundMe page: it has not received the same attention, but has $2,000+ in it.

Well, that's an upbeat statement, very important to be positive!

There is yet another method for anyone (like me) who doesn't belong to Facebook, and who (no doubt irrationally) feels uneasy about giving credit card details to the GoFundMe website. At Karl's GoFundMe web page you can send a message directly to Maria, to which she will reply with her email address, and then you can send money directly to her via Paypal.

Thank you for the link, Cato.


You are most welcome!

A mini-update: Karl's fund on FaceBook broke the $6,000 barrier today, approaching $6,100.  He also wrote two jokes...kind of, sort of, maybe!   :D   8)

Karl sent me his longest message yet, about setting a comic-opera libretto (which I wrote for him some years ago) as soon as he "gets back in the saddle."   0:)   One of his Triad Choir colleagues presented him with an idea about a concert with one-act operas using Triad singers. 

So Karl seems pumped about composing that opera right now!  8)  A very good sign indeed!

Hi Karl - all of your 'buddies' at GMG have been concerned - WONDERFUL to see you 'back in the saddle' and leaving a post - we all hope for the best - good luck!  Dave :)
