Light a Candle for Jay's Father


I have just become aware that JayinPhiladelphia's father is in a coma due to complications from cancer surgery.

I knew that Jay was having some difficulties, but this is news to me.

Let us hold Jay and his father and his family in our thoughts and prayers.


  1. Awww, man. Thanks!

    I was gonna write something on this tonight. Still will. There has been more news since then, and though he's far from well, things are at least looking a little up for all of us.

    Slowly but surely.

    I'm back home for a couple days now, and I'm heading back up on Thursday night or Friday morning.

    It's been an emotional roller-coaster, as I got some great news while he was in surgery (one of the potential jobs I moved back here came through, and I'll be making more than I've ever made in my life in 8-12 weeks from now), but then this.

    We had some rough times growing up, but dad is my best friend in the world these days.

    Thanks, Mike.

  2. Jay, thinking good thoughts for you and yours at this time. Take care my friend.

    1. Jay, you are welcome. Glad to hear about the job; it's strange how life has a way of putting stuff like that in our path at some of our worst times. I know it has happened to me more times than I care to remember. Emotional roller coasters for sure. One thing I know is that you are a strong guy and will be able to deal with it :)

  3. All the very best Jay. This is a wrenching time and know that I'm thinking of you.

  4. You're in my thoughts and heart, Jay. I pray for s quick recovery.

    1. Thanks, Randall. They confirmed today that he didn't suffer a stroke and he has no discernible neurological damage, but they also found out he's been having regular small seizures for the past day or so. They put him on medicines for that today, and things look good on that count now. No more of that.

      He's opened his eyes, and he's responded to light. So that's good, too.
