  2. Some of you many have already seen the thread, others may not have, but in short, one of our members (Speedling) recently had a stroke at age 34. Medical bills not withstanding, Lee is self employed in the construction business. So needless to say, there is going to be a period here where Lee won't be able to provide for his family and needs to focus on rehab. Of course, like all of us, he'll be stressing big time about this-at a time when stress is the last thing he needs. So lets all pull together like his extended family and help him out! Donate what ever you can today....he's not one to ask (most of us aren't)....so put yourself in his shoes and LET'S DO SOME GOOD!

    Please give us an update when you can. Since they are flying you I'm hoping that this is only a Transient ischemic attack and not a cerebral hemorrhage with concomitant neurological deficits.

    @Julian - would you please start a separate thread so that we can all keep up with how @Speedling is doing.
    Thank you sir

    Hope all turns out and it was a TIA, and you get better with a handle on everything. Thoughts are with you and your family.

    Split these posts out into their own thread @Speedling - didn't want it to get buried in the "what did you do to you boat today" thread.

    @Speedling - hope all goes well and your recovery is speedy (or speedling! :))
