Report While I’m Sick

Most of you saw my post on my recent visit to the West Haven Veteran’s Hospital. I was found to have bronchitis. It has left me weak. Not enough to keep me bed-bound sleeping, but not enough to be running around cover the calls. So I’ve been able to report on stories. For years I’ve been able to listen to my radios in my office anywhere I have an internet connection. That’s how I’m able to listen for extended periods of time I’ve been dozing on and off during this so its possible I can miss calls. If you see something take a picture and send it to me at 203-769-6961. Texting is way faster than messages or email.

I’ve been overwhelmed at the support and get well messages. News coverage will be sporadic until I fully recover.
