Dick Wagner has posted the following update to his website:
"Sorry to be so negligent, but I've found myself being really busy lately and have mostly forgotten that some of you want a health update. It's getting pretty bad when y'all care more about me than I obviously do. My health is on the upswing...my left arm is improving a lot, no guitar playing yet but it is just a matter of time and the therapy will have brought me back to the stage again. How well I will be able to play is unknown but I will be thankful for every note acheived . Thanks for all the well wishes and yes...I love you too."
