Heading out to see a Veteran in Sutton

An old friend came back to Alaska from Texas and he's in bad shape - acute renal failure, heart problems, etc...He had undiagnosed diabetes until just a couple of years ago. They had no money and they didn't know what they were going to do.

It turned out he is also a Vietnam-era Veteran and no one ever asked him if he signed up for benefits.

Maurice Bailey to the rescue! (I love working for those guys!)

Morrigan and I are heading out there with a care package today. His wife's health isn't good either and they need to get the place in tip-top shape because his new dialysis will require that the bedroom be almost sterile.

Ms. Patti will be setting up a work crew to clean and do repairs...possibly this Friday. If anyone wants a free trip to Sutton from anywhere along the route from Anchorage (riding in the dually, of course) let me know.

Since physically I'm useless in the cleaning area, feeding people will probably be my job!
