Sonny is in the hospital

I just called Sonny and talked to him. Angie called me earlier to tell me he was in the hospital.

Sonny is in Shore Memorial Hospital down in Somers Point. He was at the beach with Pat and the kids for what was supposed to be a week, but he had to go to the emergency room with back pains after a couple of days. They thought he had a kidney stone and sent him back to the beach house; but then it turned to a pretty serious infection that gave him a fever so high he was delirious. Checking him over for that they found what they think may be a heart problem. So he's there until at least Monday when they plan to do a stress test.

We're all walking masses of potential problems. Once the docs start rigorously probing and testing our well used bodies they find all sorts of stuff.

The good news it that Sonny sounds to be in fine fettle and he's looking forward to getting back home after Monday, or at least getting transferred to a Philly hospital if he needs any further tests or such.

During our conversation Sonny filled in a detail that I never knew about Uncle Froggy. Turns out he eventually had his back hair shaved off after people kidded him about it for long enough. Who woulda thunk it? Uncle Froggy was a metrosexual way back in the 1960's.
