Gordie Howe had another minor stroke Saturday, but his son told the Detroit Free Press on Sunday that Mr. Hockey is comfortable.
"We were able to get rid of his back pain, so basically he's kind of resting comfortably," Mark Howe told George Sipple of the Free Press at the Detroit Red Wings-Vancouver Canucks game at Joe Louis Arena. "I'd say he probably has more good days than bad days. I mean, it's hard. He's not walking. Speech is extremely, extremely difficult.
"He knows what we're saying. He understands what's going on. When you're there with him, you can interact; it's still a nice thing."
