Cranky old Red Bear
Just so's yanno...Eric Flint came through the surgery just fine, and is his own irascible self.

From the Red Bear hisownself: "'Take it easy,' she says...

Humph. I _am_ following the instructions of the doctors and nurses, each and every one of whom -- there are no exceptions, not one -- is a slavering sadist who advances the laughably absurd notion that the best way for me to recover is to be as active as possible -- i.e., inflict great pain on myself -- rather than employing the sort of rigid inactivity and profound bed rest that every sane person knows is the Road to Medical Recovery."

I asked him if he was allowed visitors, since I'm not far from the hospital he's in, and he replied, "Yes. But -- fair warning -- the sociopaths who run this joint might make you get up and exercise too.

Eric, still wondering where the smelling salts went..."

So I'm going to try to get over to see him either tonight or tomorrow night.

Ask him how he is to advance the coming of the dictatorship of the proletariat while lying flat on his back, and bring greetings from his Swedish fans.

I would be willing to exercise with him. It's much better than the alternative.

Oh, exellent. Say hi for me?
