Just opened up this email from Harold's wife, it was sent out in the early AM.

On behalf of all of us at The Home Machinist, we wish Harold a speedy recovery.

Home Machinist writings, Induction Furnace, many other project, pale in comparison to ones Health; the number one project for all of us!

Hello Ron,
This is Harold's wife, Susan, writing to you. Harold is spending the night in the hospital. They think he had a slight stroke. He had a weird episode late Friday night, and thought it might be a stroke, so while we were in town today, we went to the ER to get a doctor's opinion. They did some testing this afternoon (Tuesday), and decided that was exactly what happened. The doctor wanted him to stay overnight for more tests tomorrow, and we decided that was a good idea. We were very lucky this first time since there wasn't a lot of damage, so we don't want to push our luck too far.

Anyway, Harold asked me to write to you and let you know what happened. I'll bring him home tomorrow (Wednesday), and I'm sure you'll be hearing from him.

Thanks for being a good friend.
Susan

Hope he follows the doctor's instructions better than most of us!

Get well soon

The following came in as an email around 4PM CDT my time, Harold is in PDT I believe.

Thanks, Ron. I talked to Harold a while ago, and he sounded fine. A little bored, but fine. They won't let me visit because of the COVID-19 thing, but we talk on the phone a lot. He just called and said the doctor wants him to stay another day so they can monitor his heart, so you won't be hearing from him until Thursday evening. The good news is, he sounds great. Just like the Harold we know and love.

Take care, and thanks to you and your wife for the good wishes.

Susan

Very sorry to hear this. Let's hope the aftereffects are minimal and Harold is soon back "patrolling" Chaski.

It would have been absolutely heart breaking . I'm so glad it wasn't. Best to both of you . There is so much more as a mentor and friend, Harold helped me through some difficult times. You were right there.
