A shocker and a plea for Prayers

A shocker and a plea for Prayers

by December 24, 2013 2 comments

Seldom do I put up posts that don’t relate to Tenkara in one way or another. That being said I felt that everyone should know about this and I am hoping that you will all put Howard and his family into your prayers today and the rest of the holiday season.

Just wanted to let everyone know that my friend and fellow blogger Howard Levitt is in surgery today. This is an e-mail that Howard’s wife sent to Cameron Mortenson of Fiberglass Manifesto last night. Please keep Howard in your prayers on this day and the rest of the holidays.

“Hi Cam,
Not sure how to blog, Facebook, or any of that, but was able to find your site which is familiar to me with all the T-shirts he wears! Could you get the word out that Howard is out of commission and will have bypass surgery tomorrow (5 arteries)! He went to the ER yesterday with chest pains, had an angiogram today and was transported to Boulder today. Boulder has a state of the art cardiac unit and is in good hands. He is going to feel sooooooooooo much better when this is completed. You may know that he has a very strong family history of heart problems and already has several stints. This surgery should make him good to go for the rest of his days. The good news is that he made it to the hospital, is breathing and talking and asking about contacting his bloggers! Feel free to contact me at the number below which is my cell. Surgery is scheduled from 7:15 and will go until about 1 in the afternoon. My phone does not have email accessibility so please call. They said that he’ll be in the hospital for 4-5 days.
Thanks and Merry Christmas!”

    Thank you so much Mark. The more prayers we can have people make and pass on to the Levett family the better. I appreciate the fact that there are still humans in the world who are not just avatars on computers.

    Hey Graham. Put this out on Northern California Trout for those that missed it elsewhere.
