I’d been to try and call JockMike2 for the last few days and I never got an answer. They had disconnected their home phone and were only using cell phones. And it was never answered.

He had surgery on Wed and they removed his pancreas and a lot of fat around it. He was in a lot of pain and had a tube down his throat since then. He got it out today and he called me.

I got the call sanding in the line at the Chantilly Woodworking show, We talked for a while. He had been in a lot of pain, but he is feeling better.

He wanted me to thank all of you for your prayers for his surgery. He said that he is going to the Dr on Monday to find out if they got it all.

So please keep him in your prayers.

Let me know if you’d like to contact him. He’s not sure when he will be able to get back on-line. I hope it is soon.

Thanks, Karson.

If you talk to him and his family, tell them we are praying for them.

Gary and Dan, he posted last week that he was going in for cancer surgery. You both must have missed the post. Thanks Karson for the update. Tell him that we are all praying and pulling for him. Get well soon Mike and we look forward to having you back on LJ.
