    To those of you who are shootin' friends with my husband, my name is Lori. I just wanted to let you know that Mike had a stroke on April 4. We went to ochsner for removal of 2 kidney stones, and blood vessels burst in his brain because his blood pressure spiked. He was in ICU then on another floor in New Orleans. Now he is in the Rehabilitation Unit at our Lady of the Lake Hospital for speech, physical, and occupational therapy every day. His right side was affected; they are teaching him, however, to strengthen his muscles, balance himself, etc. After he is discharged in a week or two, he will receive outpatient therapy==not sure where yet--probably Baton Rouge.

    Both of our children flew home to be with him, and that made him very happy. He saw our grandson, JT, for the first time and fell in love! They live in South Korea and returned this morning. My daughter and granddaughter are also here from Kansas; they'll be here a few more days.

    I will try to keep you updated if i see any response.

    Sincerely,
    Lori Garrett

    Wow, Lori. I'm new here and don't know your husband yet, but he will be in my prayers as well as the prayers of all the other members here, I'm sure. Glad he is doing better and pray he makes a complete recovery.

    I met Mike at Walgreens in Prairieville after the last gun and knife show at Lamar Dixon. He was wearing his Bayou Shooter shirt he had just purchased at the show. We spoke at length while I waited for some pictures to be developed, and he told me about his kidney stones and his concerns about what was gonna happen since he couldn't pass the stones. Wow I hate to hear about his condition. Get well soon brother!

    This is the first I hear of this. Hope you heal quickly, so we can get that ride we had been talking about. I'm leaving today for Florida, some of those miles will be for you.
