    I wanted to drop a note here to the folks that know the Ron Man.... Ron P.... he is in the hospital not doing well. They had found a blockage in his intestines that had been causing his problems for the last 6 months or so and before they could do anything about it, it had ruptured. They told Carol he didn't have much of a chance of surviving the surgery, but he did and he is recooping... and weak. I talked to Carol this morning and he is in pretty bad shape.

    I know a lot of you out there know Ron and know what a force he has been on this forum and those of you who know him know how important this forum and his friends here are to him.

    Just a note... please keep Ron  and Carol in your thoughts and prayers.

    He is in ICU and can't talk.... they don't except any flowers... and Carol has asked to not send anything at this time. He is in the Intermountain Hospital in Salt Lake City. She told him I had called and I got flipped off so it sounds like he is feeling better.

    Thanks for keeping us informed, Dave.

    Ron, I hope you make a fool of the doctors and get up and around very soon. Lots of folks here are pulling for you.

    Thoughts, prayers and best wishes for Yourself, Carol and your lil' smokin' buddies (the pups).

    lol... either that or he was just saying your his #1 friend! That "blockage" wasn't a build up of Yoshida's by any chance was it! [​IMG]

    Lots O' prayers and good wishes for both Ron and Carol, it's not easy being one who is sick or the one sitting next to the bed watching. Will send some "smoke" signals to the heavens for him in hopes of a speedy recovery.
