We've had a very bad phone connection, calling back and forth many times with no success, but finally this morning, just now, at about 9 am PST, Bill called loud and clear and in a very upbeat tone, saying Pam is feeling much better, her spirits is up, her appetite is back, she had breakfast, and they are going to Hilo. The Coast Guard is not able to divert any ship to them, so they're sailing to Hilo. The wind is about 6.5 knots, and they're making progress.
I'll talk to them again at 3:30 and tell you more details.
Thanks so much for all the support and good wishes, which I passed on to them.
