Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting. As most of you know, Mike is in the fight of his life healthwise. It all started with listeria meningitis in late May, followed by a number of hospitalizations, 3 strokes, seizures, and 3 different rehab stays. He has had a lot of difficulty eating and eventually had to have a feeding tube placed earlier in September. He has the Gator Fighting Spirit. And we want everyone to know what is going on with him, to pray for him, come see him, and help him keep his spirits up.
