We've just been made aware of exactly how serious Mike's illness is, and I would like to ask you all to send him positive thoughts and prayers.
I just got off the phone with Deb who informed me that Thursday evening he had an episode where he had a suspected heart attack, quit breathing completely and actually flat-lined. The paramedics were able to revive him and took him off to the local hospital. After the battery of tests it has been determined that he indeed had a heart attack which caused damage to the top part of his heart. He'd had a prior attack which damaged the lower part, now with this new damage it becomes necessary to do an angiogram on Monday. The results of that will be either stents or open heart surgery. Deb is holding up well under the circumstances, but she wanted ya'll to know what was happening. Mike says he's "not a freebird just yet", so he's still holding his sense of humor.

If you would like to send him a word or two of encouragement, I will copy them and get them to Deb to give to Mike. I'm sure he would enjoy hearing from his family...the Skynyrd Nation!
