Default A few Prayers for a friend - Howard Collins aka Policelugers

My good friend Howard Collins, aka Policelugers has been in the hospital.

Howard helped me learn about police lugers, taught me stuff, sold and bought from each other, so along with about a dozen members here, I have known him the last 13-15 years

... just got out of hospital after 2 months stay,yes 2 months, trying to learn new apple today.....broke left leg and broke it bad....now wheel chair bound as neither leg works. bad internal infections told dr. I was doomed to a dialysis machine the rest of my life BUT just 4 treatments and all infections cleared up, more tests tomorrow in Lancaster tomorrow will tell me more. Sandra is doing well and a champ through all of this, our retirement home is under construction and will be ready go Oct move in....when I get settled in plan on selling a few Lugers off....anyway you may post any/all of this for brotherhood to read, just so very tired right now, was able to get away from hospital to go Sandy flag retirement ceremony sp, very special and this is her first full week off.....more later

Ed, sorry to hear about your friend Howard. It sounds like he is on the road to recovery, especially since his renal dialysis was a short term regimen and not a life long requirement. He can thank the Lord for that blessing.
