My Dear Friends in Christ,

Last Thursday, August 8, I suffered a medical emergency.  I went to my doctor and was sent to the ER at Southside.  It was determined that there was bleeding on the brain.  Please do not worry, it has stabilized, but my eyes do not open fully.  I am not in and have not had any pain.  My doctors have advised that it will be awhile for the brain to absorb the blood, and before I can resume normal activities.  With time, occupational therapy, and plenty of rest, I expect to make a full recovery.

Pax,

Father Mike
