The 82-year-old broadcast, political and journalistic curmudgeon we know and love as Rafe Mair sends news we were all too anxious to hear:
Yesterday I returned from 4 1/2 months in hospital where I had three brushes with death.
I’m home now and though I’’m still pretty weak, I feel stronger and stronger as each day passes.
Thanks for your patience.
Best to you all.
If you’d like details of the severe pre-Christmas tumble down a full flight of stairs that precipitated Rafe’s latest health challenges you can get the details at this link to his on-line publisher, the Tyee.
My sincerest wishes for a speedy recovery.
No one on Vancouver radio has been as respected and feared since he left the airwaves. Speedy recovery Rafe.
