Subject: Jerry Epstein in hospital
From: Suffet
Date: 21 Dec 09 - 08:27 AM

Greetings:

This appeared on Facebook yesterday (Sunday, Dec. 20). It is from Clarice Kjerulff, the long time partner of Jerry Epstein, one of the founders of the New York Pinewoods Folk Music Club:

I did take Jerry to the emergency room. He may have had food poisoning, but it turns out he also had a stroke. Fortunately, a very mild one, and he seems almost normal. No problems with his limbs, speech is fine. His short term memory seems a little weak, hopefully that will right itself when he's feeling better. He is in Mt. Sinai, Manhattan for monitoring.

Jerry first felt ill Saturday night. As Clarice says, he is in Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City. The latest that I heard is that he will likely stay there today, but will probably be released shortly.

Some of you may recall that Jerry did a tour of the UK earlier this year along with banjoist and singer Ralph Boddington. Jerry has also traveled throughout the world (Russia, China, Australia, etc.) meeting and sharing songs and fellowship with traditional musicians andmusic lovers wherever he has gone. He has also been the prime mover behind the resurrection of the Eisteddfod traditional music festival in the USA.

We all wish him a full and speedy recovery.

--- Steve

Mudcatters,
Those of you who have expressed an affection for the song I recorded as MASTER OF THE SHEEPFOLD -- Jerry Epstein is where I learned the song. I was on staff at Pinewoods Camp at Plymouth Massachusetts when I cornered Jerry and he sang it into my cassette recorder. He is a fine folksinger. --

Be well!!!!!!!!!!

Good news -- Jerry may be released as early as tomorrow. Now to figure what his long term care will be. He is not a candidate for a residential rehab, since he has no physical impairments. I'm told that the social worker is setting stuff up for occupational & vision therapy, + visiting nurses, at our house. Will find out more tomorrow.

What a great birthday present!

Not so good news. Jerry Epstein was discharged from Mount Sinai Hospital as planned on Thursday, December 31. However, he started feeling sick soon after arriving home, and he went (or was taken) to Elmhurst Hospital near his home in Queens. The last I heard is that he will be admitted. I have no idea what his current condition is.

Here is the latest news from Clarice. This showed up on her Facebook page a little before 8:30 AM today, January 1:

Jerry was back in the emergency room, via ambulance. He had chills, fever & nausea. When the EMS came, his blood pressure was 220/110, and that was after taking medication. I was pretty darned scared. By the time we got to Elmhurst, a few blocks away, the fever had broken and his blood pressure went way down.

[EMS is Emergency Medical Services, the New York City paramedics.]

And then she added this about an hour later:

Thanks, folks, Not sure where the fever came from, at least it's gone. I suppose the nausea could have been a reaction to the Lipitor -- he had his 1st dose shortly before he felt ill. Will talk to our regular MD today.

I'm not sure if the hospital admitted Jerry, kept him in the ER for observation, or sent him home. Clarice hasn't said. I guess she and Jerry will know more after his regular physician sees him today.

He really sounded good -- much better than we had expected -- although the doctors are still adjusting his diet and his medications. Jerry still has a lot of rehab work ahead of him, but at least he seems to be on the right road.

I won't publish Jerry's home phone number here, but anyone who knows Jerry and already has his number should might want to call him every once in a while.

I don't know how that stray word got into my sentence. Let's try that again.

I won't publish Jerry's home phone number here, but anyone who knows Jerry and already has his number might want to call him every once in a while.

OK, that makes more sense.

You might also try following Clarice Kjerulff's status updates on Facebook. Her most recent one says, It's been one month since Jerry's first stroke. He is getting better, but it's a slow process.

Clarice posted this on Facebook today:

Jerry has been dealing with serious depression off and on today and yesterday. If people feel like calling in the next few days, it always lifts Jerry's spirits to hear from people. The number is 718-429-3437. Late afternoons are generally best. Jerry is definitely not a morning person.

That pretty much says it all.

UPDATE

I have seen Jerry three times since I forwarded Claice's Facebook message on January 24. The first time was at a New York Pinewoods Folk Music Club program committee meeting, the second was at a board of directors meeting, and the third time he was among the audience at a Johnson Girls concert. In all three instances Jerry appeared alert and attentive, and he actively participated in the two meetings. If you had not previously known him, you may not have realized that anything was amiss. In short, Jerry's progress has been substantial. However, as Clarice noted, it's a slow process.

People who know Jerry are still encouraged to call.

I realized that once the crisis was over, no one updated this thread. Jerry said it was ok to post this. The stroke had impaired his eyesight, his reading (but not his writing), his memory, and some cognitive functions. He has been working hard at rehab. Now he can read, though not yet as fluently as before. His eyesight has improved enough so that he can drive again - very important to him. His singing and wisecracking were not affected by the stroke, so he always sounded like himself.
Jerry is well enough to direct the Eisteddfod, a Festival of Traditional Music that the Folk Music Society of NY (Pinewoods Club)took over from Howard Glasser. It will be November 5-7 at the Hudson Valley Resort and Spa, in Kerhonksen, N.Y. Come see Jerry & 20 other great musicians; get details at http://www.eisteddfod-ny.org
After the stroke Jerry and Clarice decided they would like to get married, and on September 5 in front of family and a lot of folkies, they exchanged rings in a Taoist ceremony led by Clarice's brother. We wish them many years of happiness.

Wonderful mews! Congratulations Jerry and Clarice!
I do wish I was there with you. All the best to all at Pinewoods. I have nothing but good memories of the times I spent making music with you all in New York.
