"Enemy on island, issue in doubt." The lung call came.

Extra credit if you can ID the quote without Google.

The VA called and they think they have a lung for me, so we are headed to the UW Hospital. If it's a false alarm, I'll update you in a couple of days. (Some folks get called in a couple of times and the lung turns out to be bad.)  If the transplant happens, Bonnie will update my blog when she can.

Note that I cannot have flowers or food, so you can get credit for planning to send them, without the expense. And I sold my Hallmark stock, so no need for cards either. Plus I doubt they will let you visit me, due to infection risk. So good thoughts and prayers from believers are about all you can do.

Please do not reply or send me email until you hear from me, as I'll be tied up and will not see them.

Thanks for all your friendship, support, prayers and love--they mean a lot. If things go south, well, as the Good Book says, "I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith."

Land the landing force! ~Bob


  1. Prayers for you, Bob, from everyone at Common American Journal! God bless~

  2. Thank you for your service to our country, Mr. Hall. My husband was in the Marines briefly, but still cherishes his memories of his time in.

    We will pray for you as you go through this health crisis. May God bless you and your family
