I had not seen Rudi on the forum for a few days, so I sent him a PM asking how he was doing. This, in part, is his response:
I have been kinda keeping a very low profile as my health has really taken a turn into the turlet.... I have advanced pulmonary hypertension ... going in for a heart cath in the morning. Haven't had the courage to post a request .. but sure would appreciate the prayers.
Prognosis is less than rosy.
He agreed to let me post a prayer request and I urge you consider offering a prayer for Rudi and his family.
Thank you and Rudi thanks you.
