The Buzz Report - Latest Update

Here's a new update from SFC Richard (Buzz) Robertson's mom regarding his status:

(Since he may be moving soon, please hold cards and letters until we have a new address. Also, his friend Chuck who has been receiving mail at Walter Reed is ready to move, so please hold the cards and letters for him also.)

The Buzz Report

He's doing well. His fever hasn't gotten over 100 for three days. They've tested him for everything coming and going, done every culture know to man and still do not know why his temp was so high for so long....he was on three antibiotics at one time!!

They've scheduled his skin graft surgery for next Wednesday the 12th. He hopes to be discharged to a rehab facility about a week after that.

He's still on a high from getting to meet George W. and Laura Bush.

He doesn't miss physical therapy (even for the President!). He tries to go twice a day but the high temps and low blood pressure slowed him down a bit, so most days he only goes once a day.

His spirit is unreal. He determination unrelenting and his smile is bright (even with the chipped teeth).

He's truly an inspiration.

Thanks for all the prayers and cards and letters ....you can slow down on the cards, but please NOT the prayers.

Thanks again,

............Buzz's Mom

Dear Ms. Robertson,

I just wanted to thank you for your reports about Rich. I met him a few weeks ago when I was visiting my brother (Chuck Yerry), and I was impressed with his positive attitude and cheery disposition in general. Watching him navigate an obstacle course during PT was very cool. Those guys just can't be held down! His wife, Sarah, was also very nice - it looks like Rich has a great support system.

Thank you again for the updates, and have a good day.

Andy Yerry
