Bill Rigg's Condition - More alert and talkative!

For all those who are keeping vigil over Bill as he tries to get thru his medical ordeal and come back to a life more to his liking, see below for yesterday's and today's reports. 

If you do go visit (please do), don't stay for long periods of time.  You do not want to tire him (he'll need his rest).  And, don't go if you are sick or have any type cold.  

Jeff Coates will be taking a 16x20 picture of Bill up for him to remember the "fun times" in the club and in hopes it will give him encouragement.  (Same picture as the first in the "Bill Riggs" Photo Folder.)

He is at Methodist Hospital, Room 4241 (Call their information desk to be sure he is in the same room: [masked]).  Kim, FYI, is one of Bill's very good friends, who has been giving us almost day to day updates.

Thanks Kim! I think confused is an AOK sign as he's been thru a lot...a tremendous amount His body is still trying to adjust and catch up. The fact he is talking and alert is what I think we want to focus on. I'm going to try to run up tomorrow for a few moments!!!

Today, Bill is even more alert and very talkative. He is still somewhat confused. His condition is the same.
