Hello A.net community,
Yesterday morning Matt (Boeingfever777) had 2 strokes in Austin, TX. Many of you know him, and his twin brother Drew (FXramper), so I thought I should pass this along. According to Drew, he is doing better but obviously, there is a long road to recovery ahead of him. I don't know a whole lot of details, but Drew has told me that he's checked a.net, so he can't be doing terrible (unless, of course, we think he's suffered brain damage by wanting to associate with a bunch of us losers! ).
Please keep Matt, his new wife, Drew, and the rest of their family in your thoughts and prayers. Drew or I will update you on his status when we can.

Hey matt, if you're out there reading this, I would send you a box of KK donuts to assist in your recovery, but I don't think the nurses would let you have them. In all seriousness though, I will keep you and your family in my prayers.
...Now they face an even greater danger...Tyrannousaurs in F-14's!!

It's events like this that just underscore how quickly the course of one's life can be altered. I've had family members that have suffered strokes, so I have an idea what y'all must be going through right now.
My thoughts and prayers are with you and the family as well.

I hope you will recover from this. I had my own heart failure and was picked up half dead on a street in Monte Carlo less than a month ago. I ended up at the hospital emergency ward and hospitalized for several days with a follow-up by a hospital cardiologist whom I will see again this coming Tuesday for further testing.
This is no fun but it must be taken most seriously.
At least you are not alone, you have your family near you. Also I hope you have good doctors. I hope you will recover, you must do what the doctors tell you and be careful with your diet, no excessive eating or drinking, cholesterol and everything else.
All of us here on the forum are thinking about you and most of all we are wishing you a full recovery.
There was a better way to fly it was called Concorde

Wow!! I'm really sorry to hear that about Matt. I don't know him real well but best wishes to him and his wife and Drew. Hope you have a full recovery and take the hint and SLOW DOWN!! Might be a message there for you also Drew; since he is your twin.
too bad most of us get too soon old and too late smart
