Tad is currently at the University of Minnesota Hospital fighting the good fight. He was admitted last week after dealing with intense pain from intestinal issues. The first few days went fairly well, he was even planning on going dancing as recently as Saturday. This morning things took a very unfortunate turn when they found a tear in his intestine. It has been a long day of uncertainty but the final conclusion seems to be that the tear cannot be repaired, sepsis has begun to set in. We ask for prayers for his comfort and good pain management. We also ask for prayers for his wife, kids, family and all of us that love his stupid sense of humor.
