    I finally got a call today from Secretweapon, (Mike), and he wanted me to tell everyone Hello for him.
    Mike has been in the hospital in NJ for sometime now. He had a 6 inch tear in his colon and matter had went through it and the toxins in his system almost killed him. (He did go out twice on the operating table and was thankfully brought back.) His mother had been keeping me informed of his progress and for 12 days he was basically in a coma.
    He is still very weak, but doing better finally. Wed. he is going to have back surgery to fix three cracked vertibras.
    Mike misses everyone here and looks forward to getting back soon.
    Keep our good friend in your prayers!

    Good news! I was not aware that Mike had had such a critical thing fall upon him like this. Hopefully there will be a good healing waiting for him in the near future.

    Good news!
    Question, does this mean he gets to eat nothing but ice cream for awhile?

    GET WELL SOON!!!

    I had a friend fall victim to a similar illness about 5 years ago so I understand the seriuosness of this all too well. I can say that he fully recovered 100% thanks to the grace of God and the dedicated health care professionals that do such excellent work. Jamie

    Was it some sort of accident to cause both problems at the same time ? Glad you're improving Mike .
