Many times, no news – or, in this case, not a lot of news – is good news.
After leaving the hospital following his seven-way heart bypass surgery, Joe Steffen has been in a rehab center and doing quite well. The pain meds have cleared his system, he is regaining full function, and his memory is returning to normal. The even better news is that Joe will be going home on Wednesday, September 18.
Joe’s wife, Brenda, is still asking well-wishers to not call Joe’s cell phone, as the overwhelming response is still a lot for him to deal with; rather, she asks that cards or letters be sent to Joe at :
42751 East Florida
Hemet, California, 92544
On a side note, Joe’s birthday was August 11 – but for years, this reporter has wished him a “happy birthday” at each and every race.
