Good news! Good news! Erik Skaggs was released from the hospital this morning (Tuesday). His kidneys have regained some semblance of function. Erik is up and walking, but still very fatigued. He still has a lot of water weight gain and his blood enzyme levels are still far from normal. He will be reporting back to the hospital for daily blood tests. His life is still far from normal. He says he's looking forward to a fitful night's sleep after having been poked and prodded for the last seven days straight at regular four hour intervals.
You can help defray Erik's mounting medical bill by sending a check to Umpqua Bank, 250 N. Pioneer Street, Ashland, OR 97520 made out to the “Erik Skaggs Medical Fund.” Any assistance that you could provide would be much appreciated by Erik. Please note that the Fund name should be on the outside of the envelope.
