Update:
I visited Kendall yesterday. He has a very young and pretty Kelly waiting on him hand and foot. Coffee? Cream and Sugar???? Anything else? Fluff your pillow???

But fate has stepped in and ENTER the roommate from hell with his mouth on "automatic" (Kendall's description, not mine). He even talks while he reads the newspaper. And what does he talk about? "This is the part that will hurt the worst..." Great! And to add insult to injury, he is a football fan. Can't wait for Superbowl Sunday. I am not sure he will live to see the Superbowl.

The hospital provided him with earphones for his Walkman. He has a supply of tapes. His sense of humor remains and at least one nurse takes notes so she remembers the lines when she gets home.

Some of you have asked for an address:

Maine Medical Center
22 Bramhall St.
Portland, ME 04102

His room changes so just put Kendall Morse and he will get it.

I tried to bring (take?) a large helium balloon shaped like a whale (3' of Blue Whale) but I stepped on the ribbon and it took off over South Portland. Big as it is, it will probably set off alarms at Portland Jetport. Kendall had to settle for the weight. It's the thought that counts.

Great work, Sins -- now we're in for all kinds of stories about blue whales flying in from outer space. Whitly Streiber will take up residence in Portland and become an expert and do talk shows. Souvenir stands will pop up all over and telescope sales will soar like wildfire.   The Skipper gets out of the hospital and he won't recognize the old place with all the uproar about flying blue whales. Just don't tell him you started it!!

Too late. I told him.

The best was putting the star shaped weight on the hook of his wheel chair. Had the staff confused thinking it meant something.

LMAO.....Sins, you gave me a real belly laugh with the whale!!! Sitcom material.....I have this great mental image of it happening. Now if the FAA shows up at your door, it will be perfect!!!!

Hanging stuff on his chair? Yeah....When Karen was in for the month long stay she started putting things the boys brought her on her IV rollaround. After awhile it became an attraction......"Got anything new today?"....."Oh, I love that thing with the pine cone." I had given her a really neat looking bear and he ended up riding on the top. One of the nurses actually took a picture!

I'm sure the hospital staff is enjoying Kendall. 99% of their patients are more like his roomie or just pains in the ass. If you're different, weird, funny, whatever, I think it lightens their day (or night). AND....you always seem to get the special stuff!!!

Here's another hospital trick I learned when Judy had her heart bi-pass surgery. On the second day of her hospital stay, I brought the most expensive, decadent, gooey chocolate cake that money could buy. I delivered it to the nurses break room at five in the morning, with a note that said, "Judy in bed 801-2 says thank you for all the great service."

It was amazing, the service she got. Nurses would come in, in the quiet of the night and give her foot massages. ANYTHING she wanted was there instantly. It almost got to be embarrasing. Bob

Pillow to cough with? They gave my brother a nice big teddy bear, and he got to take it home, too. He sleeps with it every night after he dresses it in a cute little thong nightie and gives it a nice big smooch.

My mom was in for surgery (gall-bladder, after the pancreatitis calmed down) and her roommate gave her a big bear to sleep with. It was wonderfully comforting (in lieu of the pet cat, etc.) and did help with coughing and soothing some pain. Mom went home and bought herself a nice big bear that she named "Nancy" after that roommate. And in her will she actually left the bear to a friend's cat (the cat would visit when her mistress was travelling, and would curl up on the bear).

While a bear might not sit well with Kendall they have large stuffed EVERYTHINGs these days--we have a couple of orcas. Find him a stuffed blue whale for during the night he needs something pillow-like to put a little extra pressure over a sore spot. Or just give him a nice pillow.

He's well on the mend and didn't even get the quick superservice you seem to be having Kendall.

Hope to see you at the YG.

Nevertheless, you have my best wishes (Geeta's too) for a speedy recovery and a lot less time spent in hospitals. Try to go easy on the chaplains.

For me being in the hospital and having surgery after surgery (after surgery) after surgery was the closest thing I ever had in 40 years as a folksinger to a paid vacation. I came to see the various hospitals pretty much as sadistic spas. Kendall, I do hope you have vacation insurance !! But watch out for those damn pre-existing vacations. The damn insurance guys won't pay for those. Yeah, I know they're wrong---but what can a fellow do??

Push that button and get all the drugs you can pump into yourself. After surgery, it's perfectly legal !!!!!!!

I spoke with Kendall briefly last night. He is in very good spirits as you can read from his messages...there does seem some danger of boredom overtaking him (heck, it's a hopsital), although he say   she's had guests coming in and out and has enjoyed that immensely...

Imminent surgery did not prevent him from making a couple of choice comments about Resident Bush...

he's gonna be fine.

I stopped in to see Kendall briefly this morning. He seemed in good spirits. He is doing a good job of keeping his roommate and nurses entertained and on their toes. He was on Mudchat on the computer in the hall when I came and had 2 phone calls while I was there but seem to appreciate all visits and wishes.

I visited today too. Went past the Nurses'Station and overheard a young, buxom lady in white telling of her impending trip to England with Captain Morse. Incredible! Hope Terri can accomodate two - or more if he gets carried away with the morphine.

He is scheduled to go down to surgery at 6:30 AM EST Monday. Group prayers, candles, chants, etc. are in order.

Ye Gads, Mon!

Just got home from an old Girlfriend's funeral up in NH (she was a Career Educator and Artist; 53 - Cancer), and check in on the ol' Cat after an absence of some time... and gadzooks already!

As I lingered in the Church sanctuary this afternoon after the standing-room-in-the-back packed-out services (the same Church I used to attend on occasion with my Parents some 40 years ago) and noticed the urn in between the flowers on the altar, Kendall's rendition of "Ashes on the Sea" came to mind rather strongly, and was poigiantly descriptive of my feelings at the moment.

Although thankfully this latest Kendall-Drama seems to be on a positive course, and the prognosis looks good, the prayers of this conservative Yankee Baptist will be with the good Captain Monday Morning, to be sure.

A week ago Saturday Aunt Mah'thah & me and Sister-In-Law Kathi went up to see Fred & Julia in a Robert Burns commemerative concert in Brunswick, backed up by another very talented couple whose names I have forgotten already.

Met Jets up there and inquired of Friend Kendall, and he brought me up to speed on the planned trip to Ye Auld Countyerie. Hope that it will still be a "go" and that a grand time is had by all.
