There have been a number of questions and rumors about Rich Skaare’s health lately. Rich’s wife has asked me to put out the following:
Rich has been diagnosed with Guillain-Barre’ Syndrome (GBS). It is a rare neurological disorder in which the body’s immune system mistakenly attacks part of it’s peripheral nervous system-the network of nerves located outside of the brain and spinal cord. GBS can range from a very mild case with brief weakness to nearly devastating paralysis. Fortunately, most people eventually recover from even the most severe cases of GBS.
Rich is currently at Dell Webb hospital for the next few days and would welcome a call or a text from friends and clubmates. His number is 352-598-9910. Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers.
I will update everyone as I know more.
