Hurricane Mikey...Updated


Hurricane Mikey is having emergency surgery right now.  Blood clots in lungs and damage to his heart.  He's having emergency surgery today.  What horrible, horrible news.  I saw Linda Lou's title and was hoping it was a joke.  You can read her post here:  PLEASE PRAY FOR HURRICANE MIKEY

I got a "missed call" from Mikey last night while I was at Seabrook.  When I called back there was no answer....I wonder if it was his sister calling....

UPDATE:

I didn't have my cell phone with me this morning because I gave it to my son, who was at Founder's Day. So he finally got home with my cell and I called Mikey's number.

Mamasan answered the phone.  I explained who I was and she was so gracious, kind and friendly.  Fruit doesn't fall far from the tree I suppose.

Mamasan said Mikey's sister found him not breathing and called 9-1-1.  Time was definitely of the essence.  Thank God she found him in time.

Mikey is out of surgery but his condition is still quite serious.  There was alot of information to absorb....he had an embolism and open heart surgery....which was very very serious with some complications.  He's out of surgery though and is able to talk a little.

Mamasan said he was being a pain so he was like his old self.  :)

I really don't know all the details, but I just keep thinking what if this happened while he was alone in Vegas?  I truly think things happen for a reason.  Mikey hauled his ass home to his family, right when he needed them most.  Thank God.

Mikey we wish you all the best baby!  Take care.  You'll be in my heart, thoughts and prayers.
