Just got off the phone with Sam Harvey,
who has been going thru some tough times health wise of late.
Sam has been a long time pioneer in the pinball collecting hobby
and has taught me most everything I know about pinball,
as he is super knowledgeable about the history of pinball with binders and binders full
of pinball info and trivia and vast knowledge of what classic games are
the best players and how best to play them.
He is definitely a character and always at the ready with a new joke.
Anyway he has been in and out of hospital and rehab facilities these past several months.
He is having trouble with mobility and other health issues, related to his diabetes
and his arthritic knees which will eventually need replacement.
And to make matters worse last night it was discovered that he probably has kidney stones.
He is feeling better today, and in fairly good spirits, hopefully his stones will pass easily.
His mobility is improving with rehab, and use of a walker,
but he really needs the knee surgery replacement,
hopefully his doctors and insurance will get that approved, otherwise
he may never be able to return home.
On the brighter side he has been able to lose over 60 lbs in the last 6 months or so
which will make it easier on his knees.
Anyway just wanted to let those interested, to wish him well and say a few prayers.
