Jim Sachs told me that Lou had coronary bypass surgery in Dallas, TX. Actually Jim went down there to see him.

There were complications following this, which produced paraplegia. This was probably (and I'm surmising from what I know of cardiopulmonary bypass) ischemia of spinal cord.

Lou fought hard in the hospital rehabbing. Of course we remember he was tough and strong, with upper-body strength. So he was indeed progressing. I called and spoke with him several times in hospital. He was, as would anybody be, severely depressed, but hopeful. He developed urosepsis. Eventually he was able to go home, but died soon thereafter.

Lou's absence from 50th will be missed.
Reading these "In Memory" postings, don't you wish you could change things.
