Joe Haldeman Discharged from Hospital

Joe Haldeman was released from a hospital in Cincinnati on November 10th, 2009. Haldeman writes: “It’s beyond wonderful to be rid of the hospital room, the IV drips, the wretched immobility. Not to mention the scorns that a meritorious patient from th’unworthy take. The condo that Joel Zakem has graciously loaned us is comfortable as can be, and has a nice woodsy view out back. Speaking of woods, I’m not out of them, quite. I get tired walking across a room (but I can do it, without the walker). I have the clumsy ileostomy bag for another six months or so, and some pretty serious surgery in store then, when they reattach my large intestine.” Further updates are available at Daily Diary on
