Bad news from Bopeye
« on: October 16, 2006, 06:32:16 PM »
I just learned this evening that Bopeye’s younger brother, Joe, was admitted into The University of Tennessee Hospital at Knoxville today. From what I understand, Joe has been under doctor’s care for several months but recently his health problems have become complicated and life threatening.


I hope everyone can take a moment to remember Joe and his family in your thoughts and prayers.

Thank you,
Chet

FYI:  Anyone wanting to contact Bopeye... he's having ISP problems with his computer. With that and his brother in the hospital, it maybe several days before he's able to get back on board.

Born and raised in the southern highlands of Appalachia, I'm just an ol' country boy who enjoys calling coyotes... nothing more, nothing less.

Thanks guys.......I'm back online after four days or so.

My brother is in bad shape, but God always gets the last say.
They've done a CT scan, x-ray, ultra-sound, bloodwork.........h e's swelling bad. He's about 5'10", 220 lbs. and 35 years old........still can grab the rim on a basketball goal. Today he couldn't walk ten steps without falling over and has swelled to where he looks like he's 300 lbs. Hasn't eaten in two days.

His triglycerides are over 2000
Cholesterol is over 650
He drinks too much.
They are gonna scope his stomach in the morning.
Going through the other end day after.

Thank you again folks. :wink:
