Member needs our prayers

Many members here know Steve Labroad and many have wondered why we have not heard from Steve all summer, well I wondered as well as I couldn't reach him by phone or e-mail and here is the reason why.
Steve is in the hospital under acute care and has been since late July. He collapsed at work with a severe pancreatic problem and has endured multiple surgeries, several of them with odds as low as 50-50. Only a week ago he actually "coded" as a result of an abdominal bleed and had to be jump-started. As terrible as that sounds - and he is truly one sick puppy - he is a stubborn fellow and is actually making slow, slow progress. But his doctors tell us he is not out of the woods and his recovery will be a matter of months.
I have been in touch with family and will keep everyone updated on his progress, they have not revealed to me which hospital Steve is in so I am unable to report that.
Please keep Steve in your prayers.

Thank you Roy,
It would be interesting to know if the hospital he is in has an email forwarding service for patients. Some of them will now print off emails and deliver them to the rooms. It would be nice to send him our wishes personally.

Alternatively you might be able to send his family a link to this thread and they could follow it printing off the latest wishes every now and then.

Missing you here, Steve. You've been a member since we started this site, and I have always loved and counted on your sense of humor. I'm sure "Castle Pretentious" is missing you, too. Keep fighting for your health!
