    Positive thoughts and prayers for Mikey Metalhead!

    One of our favorite Linkers, Mikey Metalhead, is going through a very serious situation right now, and he's given me the O.K. to share it with all of you here on the Links.

    A week and a half ago, I received a phone call from Mikey's daughter letting me know that he had had a massive stroke. He was by himself when it happened but was able to call 911 for help. Within minutes, he was in the care of a nuerologist at a Fort Worth hospital. This is not the type of stroke that can be treated/corrected with surgery. The body has to heal on its own, and the good news is that healing is occurring. The brain bleed did stop on its own and his brain is "reabsorbing" as it should. His doctors do not feel that any permanent brain damage occurred, which is great news. He remembers everything that happened and is every bit of his fiesty self. As of yesterday, Mikey had moved out of neuro ICU and into a regular room. There is still some swelling in his brain, so I don't believe he's been able to begin his intensive physical and occupational therapy yet, but that will come soon. His speech and movement on his left side are what seem to be affected at this point. His speech is progressing, and although he has no movement right now on the left side of his body, it is very early in his recovery process, there is still some swelling in his brain that could be masking some of his abilities, AND his doctors feel confident that he will have a complete recovery. I hear that he is doing his job in giving his nurses a hard time (and probably flirting a little, if I had my guess) and is taking plenty of opportunities to give the bird to those who deserve it (his signature pose).

    Those here who know Mikey know that he is a GREAT guy with a huge heart and a love for life. He's about as cool a guy as one could ever meet. I know that you'll all join me in sending tons of positive thoughts his way, and if you're a believer in prayer, please pray your heart out. I know he would sincerely appreciate well wishes and good thoughts from his Van Halen community.

    Kick this thing in the ass, Mikey...we're all pulling for you!
    Meet me in Cabo!

    Amen sista!! Lotsa love for Mikey and prayers are sent daily for his recovery. That man turned flipping the bird into an art form and we ladies love the Godfather of TLW, so Lord help the nurses cos he will be in his element. They wont be able to resist his fun sense of humour.

    Rooting for you Mike and hoping to see you kick ass asap.

    Awww Mike!! Best wishes man, you will pull through this. And be certain that I am including you in my prayers brother.

    I will pray the rosary especially for you today, and will be sure to include you every day in that prayer.


    Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name.
    Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.
    Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us.
    And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

    Amen!



    Almighty and Eternal God,
    You are the everlasting health of those who believe in You.
    Hear us for Your sick servant Mikey Metalhead,
    for whom we implore the aid of Your tender mercy,
    that being restored to bodily health,
    he may give thanks to You.
    Through Christ our Lord.

    Amen




    God bless you Mike!!!!!!!
