    Ruffitt Is In The Hospital
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Folks,

    Our friend and staff member "Ruffitt" had to be taken
    to the hospital a few days ago, I wanted to let him
    and his wife "Tag-a-long" know that we here at VMBB
    are thinking of him in our prayers & thoughts.

    Below is the last update we received at TFF from
    Tag-a-long.

    Ruffitt is not doing
    very good. He is not responding to all the junk they are
    pumping into him. Still has fever, cough and pain in his
    stomach. Hopefully his gallstones have not flared up again.
    They can not help him much with them if they have. He finally
    relaxed late this afternoon after a shot of morphine. I do not
    know when he will be back with all of you, but your are all in
    his thoughts also. I am hoping this weather front will move
    on out of here so we can tell if it is affecting him enough
    to make him this miserable. For all of you who know me
    I take this too as best I can, but honest, I am worried.

    I'm keeping a close eye on him for all of you. Found out
    I can still make it up 6 flights of hospital stairs when I was
    out getting supper and the power went out. I wanted to be
    sure his BiPap kicked back on when the power came back.
    Darn elevators did not work. I took a shot of his Combivent
    after that trip. The ole gray mare ain't what she used to be.

    Tag-a-long

    Guys and gals, ruffit and his wife Tag-a-long are two of the nicest people you could ever meet. Believe me as I met them twice last year.

    Still praying for ruffit one of my dearest friends.

    Ruffitt - you get to feeling better real quick, we miss you and your post.....always had neat little guys at the bottom of them. Tag-A-Long, you keep care of yourself also!

    The prayers for both of you.

    Hope

    hope,

    I talked with Tag-a-Long Sunday morniing and at that time ruffit was feeling better (but that's because he was on morphine). I meant to call him at the hospital (but I keep screwing up the time difference). Will try tomorrow when I get home from work. It should still be early enough his time that he'll be available to talk to. I'll let you all know how it is then.

    Thanks T for the info. Ruffitt is sure missed here and I know he is really missed on TFF. You let he and his wife know they are in our prayers and we are waiting for his return. - Hope

    Recently this gentleman stopped in at my website and signed my guestbook with some very kind words and comments. I remembered the name from this board and was simply wondering (being that I have not seen him post here lately) how he is doing. From the words he expressed to me it sounded as though he was in very good spirits and I do hope that this is true. Has anyone heard how he is doing and where may I email him at. Thanks Six

    SixTGunr - ruffitt is doing fine and is home now. He's getting better day by day and I'll e-mail you his e-mail address (give me a few minutes as I have to dig it up).

    Thanks "T" .... At your convenience is fine. We here in Misery ( I mean Missouri ) don't do two things...We don't get in a hurry and we don't get excited .
