Just got off the phone with the big guy—I was concerned that he hadn’t posted in a couple of days and wanted to make sure he’s all right. He’s fine. Sounds like he’s going great.
Mikey was released from the hospital on Saturday and is staying with his sister Amy and her husband. He just got his computer connected yesterday and hasn’t had a chance to post, but he assures me he’ll put something up tonight.
Mikey also assured me that he’s fine financially—something I know a lot of us have been wondering about—but I bet you anything a little something in his tip jar would be greatly appreciated. It’ll be a while till he can work again; he’s on two months bed rest and can’t drive for another five weeks. The good news, in addition to the fact that he continues to be recovering so well, is that he’s “getting the best care you can possibly imagine” and the hospital is working with him on the medical expenses so all he has to do is focus on getting better.
Really, he sounds fantastic. When this is all behind him, I’m gonna kick his ass for giving us such a scare.
