Best wishes for a speedy recovery. Although I have made some derogatory posts about mead in the past I met a good mead maker a few months back who opened my eyes to a few things. Have Ken's book in route to the house as we speak.

So that means you have never had one of Ken's meads like Heart of Darkness or The Tina Louise (there is just a littel Ginger in there). Most excellent drinks.

This weekend Ken was posting from outside the hospital, but we assume he is still getting the surgery on Wed.

That's rough.  Hopefully the surgery will go well.  Get well soon, Ken -- I'll be opening a bottle of traditional dry for ya tonight!

Ken's wife posted that the surgery went well, only one hour. He was off all the tubes early that evening.

Another update. The chest tubes come out today (I was wrong that those were all out).

His wife said when she showed up, there were 5 good looking women taking him for his walk down the hall. Five she said. Must be talking about good mead.   ;)

Ken looks to be getting a little bored in recovery.

Go Ken!  I will have to brew a mead someday and I'll look up your recipes when I do!
