Captain Phil Harris Update!!!

In Addition to all the Regular Update sites, My OWN Information Sources in Anchorage all Confirm this Better than first expected progress.

UPDATE February 3, 2010: No one ever said Captain Phil Harris wasn't tough. Today, dad showed some good signs of improvement, squeezing our hands and even summoning his trademark Captain's bluntness by telling the doctors and nurses, "Don't f*ck up." We are encouraged but still very cautious. It is a long road ahead, but its made more bearable and comforting knowing your thoughts and prayers are with us. We are strong because of you -- our fans. Thanks and we will continue to update you as best we can going forward.

February 1, 2010: Josh and Jake Harris thank everyone for their heartfelt thought and prayers. The Deadliest Catch community has always been more like family than just fans, and Discovery Channel joins the Harris boys in thanking everyone for their wishes of support. Captain Phil is resting comfortably and is in the care of excellent doctors and nurses. We will update everyone on his progress as best we can.

January 30, 2010: Phil Harris suffered a stroke while in port off-loading from the F/V Cornelia Marie. He has been transported to a medical facility and is receiving the best care possible. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and we will make more information available as we know it.

Also, One Last Thing

The hospital is being overwhelmed with calls asking where people can send get well cards.
Please send correspondence to:

Captain Phil Harris
PO BOX 32466
AMARILLO, TX 79120-2466

Bonnie will gladly box the mail up and send it to him. Thanks in advance.

And Send some Love Bonnie's Way too!!!

That's great news and I'll continue to monitor the CM website. Hey, did the "you know who boat" make it in to DH to offload? Any news there or for any other boat for that matter.........:-) Hope all is well for them and everyone else in the fleet.

I am glad the news is better than expected but I am still majorly concerned....I am so thankful that you quit smoking...

The entire CM family deserves hugs and praise. They have kept us all up to date and well informed. Bonnie and Helen are miracle workers. keeping so many people corralled.

Well obviously his speech wasnt affected, which is great - does anyone have any idea if anything was affected? hopefully he will quit the cigs (which is hard as hell, been there done that) and the red bull which I think should be illegal along with the rest of all the energy drinks out there
