Update Monday morning:
I received an email that Gary is out of intensive care. He cannot talk very well yet, so visitors are limited but the family said all the cards and well wishes are veru much appreciated.
Updates Thursday morning from Gary's wife Terri on Facebook:
Good Morning, Things are looking up this morning — there is a good chance Gary will be moved out of ICU today. Thank you for all you thoughts and prayers.
Gary is out of icu. I know many of you want to stop up n see him, however we still need to take things a bit slow for him. He is still not able to talk n communitcation is difficult. He will be in the hospital for at least a couple more days. I will continue to update you ZOOGES progress.

Thank You all for your outpouring of prayers and generosity towards our familiy at this difficult time!!
Gary Zuege, a Madison Bowling Association Hall of Famer and board of directors member, is in intensive care at UW Hospital after suffering a stroke on Sunday.
His wife Terri Zuege posted on her Facebook page on Tuesday morning that doctors were working to get his blood pressure and heart rate under control.
Aaron Wells, a manager at Dream Lanes, where Gary Zuege was a manager for years, said Gary was "hanging in there" but faces a long road to recovery.
Gary can't have visitors, but Wells said the family is accepting well wishes at Terri's Facebook page or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org, and welcomes thoughts and prayers for him.
Gary, who was inducted into the MBA Hall of Fame in 2008 with myself and Marc McDowell, has long been known as one of the great characters and funniest men in Madison area bowling.
The Zueges have been operating the Owl's Nest restaurant in Portage, Wells said.
Here's to a quick and complete recovery for Gary. I think I can safely say that all of Madison bowling is pulling for him!
