    This is sad news. I am 30 minutes from NP. Wish I could run over there and bring some Get Well balloons and good thoughts from all of you! Hope we get some good news soon.

    Heard from S this afternoon. Mike's father has decided to remain out of the picture in no uncertain terms. That is the only civil way I can put this news.

    Oh my goodness. I just clicked on this thread for the first time. This breaks my heart. My thoughts are with him and my hopes are for a speedy recovery. I am so grateful that he has his husband there by his side. Thank you for providing updates.

    I looked at Mrs C's original post and didn't look back until I saw it grow. Of course, I said a prayer for the anonymous person that needed them.

    I hope Mike pulls through without any lasting problems.

    What ever happened to unconditional love? I hope Mike pulls through quickly.

    This little moderator will be looking the other way should you choose to describe that decision in the terms that it so richly deserves.

    Though language fails me.

    Not good news. Mike suffered a seizure this afternoon. He is minimally stabilized, "but the timeframe for everything has shifted up a lot." I don't know exactly what that means.

    He has suffered enough. I cannot believe his father has this attitude; this is his CHILD.

    Cat - please pass along our prayers via your contact.

    So sad. I had no idea it was Mike until I saw this thread with so many posts and looked into it again. I really hope his dad comes around. I couldn't imagine not being there for my child, regardless of the past.

    UPDATE: It is looking like Mike's doctors are going to attempt a liver transplant tonight. It's risky, but it's his best bet, and they have a donor organ.

    I texted his husband this: "The AtoZ community is aware of Mike's health. People all over the world are praying for him and for you. Lots of strength coming your way." It meant the world to him.

    Surgery started closer to 2am. I'm guessing it's still going on now.

    Thanks for all the updates, Cat. Prayers for Mike and his husband are being sent...and I am also praying that God helps his parents see that this is their son, and that Mike needs them now.

    Heard from S! Mike survived the surgery but has kept everyone running ragged with complications. He's still in a coma, but he is ALIVE.

    Prayers are still very much needed, as our friend is still very much in the woods, but the transplant is done.

    The exact wording I got was, "confused and very out of it."
