    I am Ezdays son writing you on behalf of the great and powerful. He wanted to let you all know that he’ll be down and out for while and not to worry. Apparently, Friday night he began to suffer from irregular heartbeats and other not-so-niceties. After convincing his wife, my dear ol’ mom, they race like a bat out of hell to the nearest hospital, to which he was immediately admitted to the emergency room. He underwent an angioplasty this morning and was moved up to ICU, where he is residing until sometime tomorrow. Turns out he had himself a blockage of some sorts which was foiled by the angioplasty. They claim he is doing better but warn he might potentially have another on the other side.

    At any rate, he just wanted me to let you all know he’s fine, but will be out for a while and didn’t want anyone to worry. I have no doubt that within a few days you’ll have your fearless leader…errr…moderator back as good as new.

    Hi Don
    Sorry to hear about your difficulties. Been there, done that 6 years ago. Follow any life style changes they reccomend and you'll be running those trains for years to come. All the best to you.

    Hobbes, thanks for letting us know about your Dad's situation. Please convey to him my best wishes for his speedy recovery.
    Don has been a very patient mentor to me, guiding me through the intricacies of the Gauge, and even helping me to learn how to navigate through the confusing world of computers. Without the help of him, and others, I probably wouldn't have stayed here: my frustration with my inability to learn the basics of computer operation was that overwhelming. Thanks, Don, and get well soon.:wave:

    Thank you Hobbes for taking the time to let us know. My family's prayers and best wishes are with you and yours during your dad's speedy recovery. I echo Doctor Wayne's words.
    Don, you have been a friend and teacher to a lot of people, many of whom may not have had direct contact with you, but only know you from your thoughtful and knowledgeable posts. Get well soon...my friend
