-FUPPETS-' Main Man Hawking has had a severe chest infection for a couple of weeks now. He is lucky to have lived this long as is, considering his degenerative disease (Lou Gehrig's), but hopefully they will be able to help him and nurse him back to some stable status. Even so, at 67, he has lived far, far longer than anyone expected when they diagnosed him 40 years ago.
One of his lifelong dreams was to experience weightlessness and he got to do so in the Vomit Comet a few years back. -FUPPETS- is jealous.
