I am putting out a call for a walker and extra sheets for our friend Rick Farmer. He is a great guy and needs our support right now as he is recovering from a punctured/collapsed lung among other things.

Just got word from Tina that Tim is bringing Rick home from the hospital today. He is still in rough shape. Even though Tim and Tina have lined up 2 people who are going to be helping look after him I am sure that extra help would be welcome once Rick is settled in and it is assessed what else is needed for his care. Could end up being things like scheduled visits and meals.

Hat's off to Tim and Tina they did an amazing job making sure Rick was ok and Tim went with him making sure he was able to be seen at Belize Medical Associates [Dr Dan's recommend] and after getting him checked in - Tim stayed on to make sure that Rick was ok and getting what he needed.

Also hats of to Ben and Drummer Dan who along with Tim were the ones to get Rick to Dr Dan who said immediate hospital care was needed.

Anyone to have friends like that lot is very lucky.

Just got word from Tina...

We also need a wheel chair. Rent for a few days would be good. If not just to get him from the airport to home would be great.
call 628-7034 or 226-4000

Update Dr Lerida rents wheelchairs so that is taken care of.

If anyone has a use a sturdy office chair or an idea of something else that would work so that he is able to wheel around his apartment.
