Herb is now at home gaining strength. He is on kidney dialysis once a week now.
Betty Soo Hoo visited him on Monday 7-27-15 and this is her report:
Visited Herb at his home today, he lost some weight, but was in fine spirit. Herb will always be Herb, and talked away with his usual levity.
He mentioned that his doctor is very pleased on his progress and predicted that his projected longevity could be up to 14 years. Instead of the 3X's kidney dialysis per week, it has been reduced to once a week. Because of his over anxious push to recovery and the use of an unfamiliar cane, he stumbled, fell and sustained a small cut near his left temple. Needless to say, the incident created quite a stir to his family, and now they are watching him with hawk's eyes. He stated not minding the special attention to be treated like a baby, but he feels very confined and not accustomed to the lost of his independence. Next week the family will be taking him to their time share for a week's rest.
It was a good visit. Pam was looking somewhat tired, but relieved that Herb is home. I told Herb everybody send their best wishes and hoping to see him soon. He apologized for missing this year's summer BBQ for all, so I said he can have a make up 'Q' next season. He laughed at this thought.
A "Caring Bridge" has been set up to keep everybody informed about Herb's condition.

A runner may stand clear of first (1st) or third (3rd) base for safety reason to avoid a line drive. The runner must re-tag the base prior to advancing.
After being walked once, a player may have the option to refuse a subsequent walk in the at-bat, until getting three (3) strikes or a batted ball.
Overrunning Bases: A base runner may overrun second and third bases without penalty of being called out providing there is no motion to advance (umpire's judgment). After overrunning a base, the runner must re-tag that base before advancing. A runner making an attempt to advance and then returns to the base is subject to a tag out. The runner may slide or dive when returning to the base. A runner may advance to the next base if they run outside the base (right side of 1st, 2nd or 3rd base without re-touching the base before advancing to the next base. Also, the runner can touch the base and advance. If a runner advances to the next base by running inside the base, without touching, the runner will be called OUT.
