May we ask how Mike is doing?
« on: July 30, 2012, 06:44:35 PM »

I know this quickly gets into areas of privacy, and respect for same.  But I suspect I'm not alone in having Michael on my mind a lot, praying, wishing him well and the very best outcome.
If it is possible, I'd love to know how he's doing from time to time.

With warmth and respect . . .

As with any recovery from major surgery there are up days and down days: most of them have been up days.

I spoke with Michael this morning and he is in good spirits and recovering strength well and deeply encouraged and touched by all the support he has received from this forum and by email.

All of your support means a huge amount to him.

Thanks for the update Chris.  I imagine that I am like a lot of others here that feel like Michael is a part of our extended family.  While I do not know him personally, I feel like a friend to him due to the many hours spent with him while watching the numerous videos.  I will keep on keeping my fingers crossed (and my thumbs pressed as is done here in Germany) for Michael to continue on his road to restored health and strength.

Chris,

Thank you for keeping us informed of Michael's condition. 

Please add my voice to those already listed as one who doesn't know Michael personally, but who has benefited over the years from the knowledge and experience he has so widely and generously shared and who is very appreciative of the effort and care involved. 

Best wishes, Michael, for a speedy and complete recovery.

Regards,

Don Hirst

At the risk of repetition, I should add that Michael is enormously boosted and grateful for the shows of support that he has received from many readers of this site. Each one means a lot to him.

Glad to hear that he is doing better. Chemo can be a tough road indeed. Please pass on my best wishes on a speedy recovery to him.

If you're able to post periodic updates that would also be appreciated. Many folks do wonder how things are going.
