Sometimes...

Sometimes life kicks you when you are down.  Sometimes life just kicks you. As some of you may have already gathered, our bassist Karl has been having health issues the last few months, but only recently has the full extent of it been known.  I'll let Karl fill you in....

This is what's on my mind.. Those that know me in real life know that my health has been up and down for some time now, I just didn't know the extent of it until I went to the ER last week to see why my 'shoulder' was in so much pain, 13hrs hours later I'm admitted since the dr's were 99% sure it's Cancer, so that's where im at now, King Never is kind of on hold from gigs, and I won't be doing much else besides what the army of dr's wants me to do to get thru this. I know I'll be ok, but I admit this all scares me. So much on my mind, but dwindling energy will cut this short. Life seems so different when you're not sure how long you may or may not have left of it. Anyway, I start chemo in 2 weeks, had surgery already, tumor is completely removed, it spread slightly to my lung, hence the 'shoulder' pain, chemo should zap that. I want to thank my family for helping me thru this, my mom first of all for having to take care of me again, then my brother and my sister in law, I love those two, more than I can say, then my Dad, my best friend. Thanks to my friends for visiting and calling whil I was in the hospital, I love you guys/gals. Ok done being all emo, figured I should update the friends I haven't gotten ahold of, nothing personal, just hard to do while sleeping 15-20hrs a day. Ok friends, goodnite, I never could have imagined in a million years, the outpouring of love and support I've gotten. Thank you.

I can't really think of anything to add except to please keep Karl in your thoughts and prayers.  Specifically, pray for healing.  Karl is an incredibly gifted musician and a wonderful person.
