Not sure how to usethis thing,
But, Mike Trump suffered a huge heart attack not long ago.
He was taken to hospital in an ambulance, with so Im told a coronary infarction, what ever that means?.
Hope he's OK,I found him slumped over his chair at the keyboard and gave him CPR
Im his partner, Vikki,I'm going up to the hospital now!.
Will fill you in later, but it doesnt look good.
Mike showed me how to use this board, ages ago, am I doing this right?.

Oh Jesus

And to think that sometime around 12 a.m. or so (New York time) he had just responded to a comment I had made here a few minutes ago. I was still awake at around 2 a.m. and was about to log off after I finished reading his note.

Get well soon, Mike. Good luck Vikki. Yes, we're all pulling for you both.

Oh my goodness, I can't tell you how sorry I am to hear of this.
He had made a reply to a thread, no more than 10 minutes after it was made! That was at 2:18 AM EDT (11:18 PM PDT). I received the topic reply message when logging back on this afternoon.

What time would it have been in your area of NZ, when it's 2:18 AM Eastern US time?

I hope everything goes OK for Mike, and also for you Vikki. Thank God you were there to administer CPR!

Anyone know if a Coronary Infarction is anything similar to an M.I.? I sure hope not!

I pray he will be posting messages here real soon.


p.s. Thanks, Scott (Bjarney), for posting the message in the General Discussion area!
