I spoke with Ray's wife this evening, and she believes he will be in the hospital several more weeks as he is fighting a severe infection. She gave me Ray's cell phone number so that I could post it on here. I'm sure he would really enjoy hearing from some of his friends. It's a bummer to be in the hospital away from home, and doubly so over the holidays. You can reach Ray at (402)418-1137. He's one of the good guys, and we all need to give him all the support we can.
Thanks to everyone, and have a very Merry Christmas.
