Dear friends and family
I am dictating this in order to answer some questions and to dispell some rumors. First and foremost, I am not dead. On April 21st. Melissa found me in my house unable to walk, short of breath and in great pain. Her quick thinking saved my life. She transported me to Norton Browsboro hospital where I was to find out later that there were some reservations wether or not I would pull through. Fortunately one Dr correctly diagnosed me with Guillain-Barre Syndrome. For those of you who are unfamiliar this is an autoimmune disorder that leaves in it's wake paralysis. Shorty after being admitted I was sedated simalar to an induced coma, and remained there for several days. When I was brought to, I was paralized from the neck down, on a ventilator and unable to speak a tracheotomy soon followed. One glimmer of hope is that traditionally Guillain-Barre is reversible but a slow road to recovery.
Today, I am one week into a rehabilitation facility. I have been off the vent and breathing on my own about month. My trache has been removed I have regained the ability to speak I have regained some movement which increases some each day. I wish to thank all of you all that have sent cards, letters, emails and messages. I am sorry as of yet I have not been able to answer each one individually. Also I want to thank my daughter Nora and Melissa I would not of been able to make it this far without you both. I hope to be back on here soon and also I want to thank you all for your thoughts and prayers.

Well there sure is a lot on my mind right now Facebook. First off, I want to thank everyone for all the get well wishes since suffering a heart attack yesterday morning. Doctors said I was 100% blocked on the bottom of my heart and was very close to checking out but a little stent and ballooning and Im on the road to recovery. Next, what devastating news about my friend Dave Evans passing. Dave was the first to give me a chance in a professional band when I was just 17years old. I have admired Dave for many many years as a true stylist in the business. Traveled many miles and had so many great times as part of the RiverBend. I will miss you old buddy. Rest easy Chief!
