Yager

many of you have met or read of Yager's escapades in buying, building and selling of his many projects.

Mike had a stroke last night, pretty serious from the sounds of it, I talked to his wife a few minutes ago, he is responding to some stimulus and commands, but it is unknown the extent of damage done at this time, the next 72 hours are pretty critical.

Please keep Mike and his wife Val in your thoughts and prayers, she's pretty much emotionally and physically wiped out right now, having been up over 24hrs.

I will update as I get more info, it will be scarce for a while until things calm down.

All I know at this time

Gavan you have a PM

Damn. If I'm thinking of the right guy, he's not that old. U-Haul to toy hauler conversion guy?

Regardless, best wishes to all.

Thanks for the PM.

Sucks. Mike is a tough guy though, hopefully this will just be another speed bump and he will be back in the game soon. He is way to hard headed to let something like this get him down for long.

Worst part of this is going to be the wait. It will be a pretty sucky 72 hours before the extent of any sort of damage will be known.

Here's to hoping they can get the clot broken up and the brain reprofused before there are any lasting effects. The brain can do some pretty amazing things in fixing itself.

I'll be keeping them both in my thoughts, my BIL has had a few strokes over the past few years. I've always followed his camper threads and stolen some of his great ideas as well.

Thoughts and prayers from here.

I have a very good friend who had a stroke at 36. He is completely okay now, and he spent very few days in the hospital. A stroke does not mean death or that he will be brain dead.
