Sam, KA4ICK

Sam’s wife Elizabeth called my home this morning at 7:25 am ET to report that she took Sam to hospital Friday night and that he was admitted.  She had just returned home to get some sleep. 

I called Saturday afternoon to check on Sam’s situation but did not get Elizabeth as she was at the hospital.  She returned my call tonight and left a message  that Sam is experiencing internal bleeding and the doctors as yet have not identified the source, but that Sam would be undergoing tests Sunday morning to identify the cause.
