May 19 Update on Buster Conklin's Condition

This just in from Steve Kraus, regarding the health of our good friend Buster Conklin, New York state farrier and retired farrier instructor at Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine.

Steve writes:

"As of today he is doing a little better and is home. He still is in a fragile situation and no one knows what the time table is but we are are still thinking that he can't live very long with his liver condition, but maybe he will fool us! As I've said, he will choose his own time. They don't make guys like him anymore. He still has some drain tubes in. He has a doctor appt. on Tues. to see what the next step is. He likes hearing from his friends so don't be bashful. Joe Chicone gave him a haircut the other day. His color comes & goes. I'll keep you all posted every several days. Let me know who else needs to be sent messages, I'm not trying to leave anyone out, its difficult to find all the addresses."
