UPDATE on Paul Forgrave: Paul went to St. John last Monday, got a new stent (a 90% blockage) on Tuesday and home on Wednesday.He is doing great! We could both see a difference in him when they brought him back to the room. Because he did not have a heart attack, his oxygen was just getting lower, recovery is much quicker. He is doing a little walking, watching what he eats and hoping for the best.

Just to let you know that one of our members, Paul Forgrave, has been in hospital in Moncton since Thursday (was admitted due to some discomfort in right side of chest). The doctors some abnormality in his blood work, possibly blockage, and he is off this afternoon via ambulance to Saint John to get it checked out. Let's keep Paul in our thoughts and prayers and wish him a fast recovery. From all the members of the Maritime Motorsports Hall Of Fame.
