Many have asked for an update.
This evening was the surprise going away party for Reggie at Rome's Fatebenefratelli hospital on Tiber Island. He was thrilled, but still sad to leave his home of many years, Rome.
Tomorrow morning at 4 a.m. Reggie leaves for America on a special "aereo ospedaliero" (hospital airplane) with a stop in Germany and then in Chicago. Reggie will then be driven to a Milwaukee rest home, Clement Manor, where he was a resident last summer.
Reggie is fine and in good spirits, but needs lots of time to rest and recover. Born in 1939, he's still a spring chicken, diciamo!
Qui in Italia ci mancherà molto, speriamo e preghiamo per lui che possa tornare presto sano e salvo alla nostra scuola latina! Regg-Dogg, ti ringrazio di cuore e ti auguro ogni bene! Oremus!
