    New York State Trap Shooters, this is an up date on the medical status of Butch Semmel at Highland Hospital in Rochester, NY. Butch contracted a virual infection that has stumped doctors and experts for months. It put Butch into a comma for 17 days and caused breathing issues to where a Trig. had to be put in to assist him. Butch was sent home and less the 2 weeks later was rushed back in with the same 104+ fever and breathing issues. Butch threw blood clots through his heart and lungs but never stopped fighting. I spent an hour and a half with Butch and Alice Sunday and " HE LOOKS GOOD"! He's feeling a lot better and Alice and his son Tracy has been with him the whole way. Butch has been and remains a mistery and Doctors are studing him because this infection has never been seen and treatment is still exploritory. Yep, some day you may hear of someone suffering from the "Semmel" infection because he may be the first known case. The Good news is that Butch is really improving and with the help of prays and God we are all looking forward to having him home for Christmas, and for good! This has been a hard battle for Butch and Alice Too, but friends and family have stood behind them and have been there and that is what it's all about. Anyone in the area of Highland Hospital should stop in and say HI in room 519 West wing, Butch loves seeing all his friends and Alice does too! If you can't stop by then send a pray and wish for a speedy and complete recovery because they are always welcome. Keep Smiling all and Watch for Butch on the Trap field at Mt Morris and Mumford as soon as it warns up this spring where it's reasonable to actually practice. Butch told everyone he was taking the winter off from shooting this year, Hey Butch, if you decide to take next winter off again, take Alice and vist Tracy in Texas or go on vacation to Florida, it's a lot more fun then Highland Hospitol.

    It's good to hear an update on Butch! Thank you for that; I hadn't heard anything since he fell into the coma and was getting really worried. Tell him to keep getting better. I expect to see him at Mt. Morris come spring-I'll wear my 'Team Butch' t-shirt.

    Thoughts and regards from Grand Island.

    Taylor K.

    Heads up to all Western NY State Trap shooters - LDTL / Blizzard / and all summer leagues. To my knowledge Butch is doing better but will be at Highland for at least another 2 weeks. The hopes are he will be home for Christmas and Tracy and the family will be up for Christmas too! Please make an effort to stop in and say "Hi" personally. I understand everyone is busy but 5 minutes of your time would make a world of difference to a Great Guy who has given so much of himself to help everyone else - Butch was never a rich man money wise but friend wise He's the richest man in the world, let him know that!

    Thanks, Don
