I'm pleased to let you know that our bassist and all around funny man Lee "Westy" Westenhofer is doing very well after his surgery. The doctors have installed a special valve on his heart to help with blood flow, and they are very pleased with his progress thus far. He wants to let everyone know how thankful he is for all the kind wishes, thoughts, and prayers that he has received. He should be in the hospital for another week or so, and then hopefully he'll be back to entertainig us all very soon. Hang in there, Westy - we're all wishing you the very best.
