Mike just called me and wanted me to pass on that his wife Rosey just took him to the hospital following symptoms indicative of a heart attack (chest pain, numbness in left arm, indigestion/nausea, etc.), and they will be keeping him overnight for observation.
It is important that we do not overreact -- we do not yet have an official diagnosis and prognosis
. That message goes to to his readers, his friends, and the One Hundred Heads Life and Casualty Company.
I'm not going to release the hospital name at this point per Mike's instruction, as he does not want a bunch of people making uncoordinated calls. I will remain on telephone standby day and night, and will report any changes in blog updates as I learn of them.
For now, share this information with anyone you know who is interested. Also, if you're the praying type, please do. Hopefully, by this time tomorrow, we'll be getting news directly from the man himself over at Sipsey Street Irregulars.WEDNESDAY MORNING UPDATE:
Mike just called to update me on his condition, which is a good thing, him being in a condition to call 'n all.
He is frustrated because the hospital wifi system blocks SSI, so he cannot post updates himself.
In terms of what's going on, at this point things are speculative. He is scheduled for more tests this morning.WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON UPDATE:
It turns out it was a severe magnesium deficiency causing the symptoms. Mike expects to be released tomorrow, when he can explain in detail.THURSDAY UPDATE:
Mike's home and getting ready to do his first SSI blog post since this latest adventure began.
