Bill Graham is in the hospital (ICU) at Kona Community Hospital. After freediving on Sunday, he started running a high fever and after a couple of days of bed rest, he was getting worse, not better. Negative test for COVID, but pneumonia with interstitial infiltrates and septicemia from a UTI. He is pretty out of it right now, but hopefully will be feeling better when the antibiotics kick in.

Please keep The Baron in your thoughts.

P.S. His bird, Ausi, was very happy to see me and participated in the FaceTime call this morning.

Bill Graham received the white card on his final personal best static apnea attempt at infinite minutes. He was a respected athlete in the water and on a bicycle, an accomplished airline captain, a loving husband, inspirational father, and best buddy to a cockatoo. KV6J: Silent key.
