Get Well, Captain Phil.
One of the series that I like is Deadliest Catch on the Discovery channel. A couple of years ago Phil Harris , owner and captain of the Cornelia Marie had a heart attack while they were on the Arctic Ocean fishing for crab. He sat out one season but came back last year. The other day while they were unloading crab he had a stroke. It was fortunate that they were in port when it happened. He was airlifted to a hospital in Anchorage, Alaska where he underwent a twelve hour surgery. He has come through the surgery fine, but of course still has a long way to go. My thoughts and prayers are with him and his family. I like most of the captains on the show, but Phil is my favorite. Hopefully he will have a complete recovery.
