if he can walk on water....

then he can beat this.... 

well, boys and girls, let me get right to it... dave had an accident.. he is unresponsive in stable condition in the intensive care unit of a hospital in the city... we still are not sure exactly what happened, but one week ago today he was at a bar with his friends from his "old days" in the city... watching the Packers... just after his birthday.. likely a very happy evening for him... 

and then something happened.. (warning!  gets a bit graphic).. we are not sure what, but could be anything from "fell down" to mugged with a club... he was drinking.. fractured skull... lots of bruises and cuts.. internal brain bleeding and swelling... in surgery they cracked his skull and are draining it... tried to bring him up off the sedation meds to check for response and remove the breathing tube... did not work... he can breathe on his own, but only responds to severe pain stimulus.. cannot respond to commands.. not good, but hopefully with healing time he will come around...

CT scans said no stroke and full recovery in time, but waking him has shown a worse picture... not much response... hopefully we will know more soon...

his brother-in-law Paul has set up an update website... Paul, we sincerely appreciate it... link is here:   

the password is "Triodemafia".....

so one important request:   please do *NOT* post this anywhere else... Dave will kill me for posting this... he hates this kinda stuff.. but I have to get the word out and get some positive vibes focused on our brother... if you want to inform someone, please send a *private* link to this post or to the caring bridge website via email or text... please, please, please no forum or digest posts.. I will delete this post in approximately one month...

here is the last photo I have of him... we were kayaking... and if you have ever been kayaking, you know the number one rule is to never stand up... you will not even get partially vertical... the kayak *will* tump you... so here is dave... with the equivalent of walking on water... arms to the sky... go, dave, go!  get well soon, my dear friend!  we love you!
