Last Thursday I got a call from a good friend – Ike Beers – that his dad had gone into emergency open heart surgery. Ike has been a friend for over 15 years, was the best man at my wedding, and my old sparring partner. Wayne, his dad, lived with Jen and I when we were fist married and not only shares the same birthday as my father, but treated me like a son since we met.
So I dropped everything I was doing and headed to Rockford to wait. It’s amazing – one minute, in a planning meeting for an upcoming series; the next, on the way to Rockford, praying for life.
Wayne had a six way bypass… but he is doing fine. So, I haven’t been blogging… but will return to it soon. Pray for Wayne – he has a lot of healing to do.
