A different kind of update:

For those of you logging in to read about Michael, I'm sorry. Today we are using [the original CarePage] as a way to reach friends and family of my sister Lynn and her husband Alan (I see all your email addresses, so I know this is getting to a large number of you.)

While on their vacation in Florida today, Alan had a heart attack. He has just come through a triple bypass surgery at Florida Hospital in Orlando (Main Campus). He is currently in the ICU. We do not yet know how long he will have to be in the hospital, but Lynn says the doctors will determine that over the next 48 hours. We also do not yet have any information about how serious the damage was to his heart, but we do know that he had the good fortune to be treated at one of the leading cardiac hospitals in the country.

I don't have a lot of details about what happened, but I do know that Alan was taken by ambulance to the Celebration branch of Florida Hospital and was then flown by medivac to the main campus. Lynn and Alan and Cori have friends and family in the area that are looking out for them. In addition to Lynn's aunt Louise, Alan's aunt and uncle are there for them, along with our close friend T____. Aunt Louise is spending the night with Lynn and Cori at their hotel, and after that Lynn and Cori will be staying with Alan's family.

When I know more, I will post it. I know the three of them and all of Alan's family will appreciate your prayers. This has been quite a shock to everyone, and I know to those of you who know Alan as well. (For those of you who don't know, Alan is a skinny guy in his early 40's who smokes, and Cori is their very charming 4 year old daughter. We might have expected any number of health problems, but not this one.)
