Thanks, y’all. Please keep him in mind. Mike was supposed to have had surgery today, but the hospital had a beef with the insurance company and everything was cancelled. His surgeon doesn't practice anywhere else, so he’s starting over.

In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are not.

He remains in my thoughts and prayers. I also sincerely pray that all actuaries and insurance men are put up against the wall soon.

These are lives. Our doctors don't even take the Hippocratic Oath anymore.

C'mon, Mike. We're pulling for you. Sod the hospital.

I was at the cardiologist with my dad all day and forgot to update y'all. Mike just got out of surgery. Doc said everything went perfectly.
