Might have to fly home in the next few days - my wife has been in the hospital with heart problems. Might have to have open heart surgery - just not sure yet. As I type this she's in the emergency room of Upper Chesapeake Medical Center. I haven't slept much during the past four days, so if I sound a bit incoherent it may be due to lack of sleep.

Hopefully, my wife will be OK, and everything can be taken care without surgical intervention. If not, I'll probably have to leave the boat here, have it stored on the hard untill things improve back home, then come down and bring the boat home at a later date. Worst case scenario is I may have to have someone else bring the boat back, which can be very expensive.

More to come,

Gary
Gary,

We will keep you guys in our prayers.

Re: The ICW - Single Handed - Well, Almost!

Just talked with the doctor at the Hospital Emergency Room, says everthing seems to be OK, may have to increase her beta blocker medication a bit, and they'll probably send her home in a few hours.

Thanks for your well wishes and prayers everyone,

Gary

Great news!!! Now that I have read that, here is our adopted pet:



SHot this pic at Marathon Marina. We nicknamed him Andrew (TDW) given the likeness. Manatees and dolphins are two things we never tire of seeing!!!

Re: The ICW - Single Handed - Well, Almost!

Melissa sent me some neat photos last night - thought I would share them with the forum.

1. Best mode of transportation in Boot Key Harbor is a dinghy. It's me, the old guy, leaving the Morgan and headed for Melissa's Hunter where the ladies prepared a feast of grilled pork, and all the trimmings, plus some fantastic rum. Oh Yeah!

2. Chilling out on the Melissa's Hunter with a Green Coconut Margaretta. Nice way to end the day and watch the incredible sunsets here. Most are as good, if not better, than those watched from Mallory Dock in Key West.

3. Heading for Marathon City Marina in my inlfatible taxi. The white bag in the front of the dinghy is the laundry - no, I don't have a washer/dryer on the boat.







Another fun day in Paradise,

Gary

Sorry to hear about the Admiral. Glad nothing to serious. Let me know if I need to pick you up and take you to the airport if I am in town. Now about those Green Margaritas.. I could use one about now.

Re: The ICW - Single Handed - Well, Almost!

Chef,

I've lost about 20 to 25 pounds since I left home on October 2nd. Had some rough days along the ICW, and out in the ocean as well. Skipped lunch most days because I couldn't leave the helm, so that might account for some of the weight loss. Hopefully, the trip home will be a bit easier.

Cheers,

Gary
