To all the friends I've met here and through DS.

I know I haven't posted here in a long time. I've been keeping busy, but always check in here to see about new records and news.

I'm going in this thursday for open heart surgery.

I'm having my atrial valve replaced.

Apparently I was born with this irregular valve, and it is common, and easily fixed.

I've been having massive chest pains, and can't walk any distance further than 10-20 feet without causing major chest pains, so I've basically limited to not moving at all, and to make things worse, my surgeon has taken over 2.5 months just to give me a surgery date.

So, I go in for surgery this thursday the 4th. Please think a good thought, say a prayer, and I'll post up as soon as I get home.

I met a lot of great people and made new friends when I was DS'ing, so I thought you should know.

Best wishes Mike.
You gave a lot to this community. I'll always remember your beefcake BigBird and your cool MC3 Opus build.
Keen to see you back on RCG shortly.
Best wishes.

Thanks everyone! It means a lot.

I am scared to death, but I'll get through this. Looking forward to feeling better.

I go in for the surgery early thursday morning. I'll be sure to post when I'm able to do so.

Having been through a few recent surgeries myself, I know exactly how you feel. You will get through it! Make sure to post in this thread after the surgery when you are all hopped up on PK's so we can laugh about it later!

By the way, only thing more exciting than having your thumb on a TX stick while DSing is having your thumb on the dilaudid button!

Was just thinking about you and going out to Goat Rock for some DSing! Then I found this post. HEAVY!

Glad you reached out to your old DS community. We'll be rooting for you.

Be well ol' friend!
