JimmySidecarr Update

I wanted to let everyone know that Jimmy is in the hospital. I took him to emergency room at Houston Northwest Medical Center around 7 this morning, where he promptly passed out and has been getting intensive treatment ever since. He is in the Medical ICU now and until he is in the clear, has no phone calls to the room. He had an episode of bleeding varices, which is quite serious but the banding procedure done seems to be working. They were going to do a transfusion when they sent me home at 10:00. More tests (always more tests) in the morning and I will certainly know more in 24 hours. Please, keep this very dear man close in your hearts and prayers. If you need to call, please call me on my cell at 713-417-6008.
Thank you - Gail

I am very sorry to hear about Jimmy. I am also ready to give blood or take any other actions that would help.

In the meantime I will think of you all, and wait for further news.

Gail was kind enough to take a moment and provide an update...

Jimmy is out of ICU and into his own room and seems to be stabilizing. Apparently the ruptured vein thingy in his neck is now holding and the transfusion was successful!
