Ben Breaks His Hip!

9-3-01

While attending the Horrorfind convention in Baltimore on August 24, Ben broke his hip. He was backing up while carrying a dealer table and his foot caught on a carpet. He had replacement surgery on August 31, 2001 which was a success. He has had physical therapy and used a cane for awhile. Ben is now 95% healed and has been busy attending conventions.

Following is a report on Ben from his wife:
"Ben is finally home and resting comfortably. (sleeping right now) In fact, he is in much better shape than I expected. He has lost about 15 lbs and has a nifty new hair cut. HE LOOKS GREAT! Better than when he left..."

"Ben refuses to use a walker - uses only a cane occasionally. He is really making a remarkable recovery! I really believe he IS the Creature From The Black Lagoon (indestructable!)"

"He said he met wonderful people in Baltimore, the people on the diverted flight, Red Cross personnel in Lincoln, hotel staff, etc. Its been a real adventure for him for the last 3 1/2 weeks!!!!"

"Tomorrow we are going to our building's pool where he will exercise in the water. Monday (9-17) he has an appointment at the VA Hospital. He is so determined to get "back on the road" and plans to attend Chiller at the end of October!!!"

"Thank you again for your concern. Ben has not opened any of his e-mail (over 100) I have been opening for him. He returned to Hawaii the 14th (Friday) after spending the night at the Clarion outside of SF airport .... would you believe the same hotel he has stayed in twice before in connection with shows? UAL put him up at the Clarion because his flight from Lincoln did not connect in time for the flight from SF to Honolulu. Staying at the Clarion was just a coincidence."
