Matt's been life flighted to a CDA medical center..he's in heart failure.

There trying to find a facility to do the surgery he needs.

He's on lock down due to covid not even family can visit.

If you pray, he needs it.

No, the lock down is to prevent him being exposed.

Ya, he's got to heal yet, then there's a couple of issues needing to be addressed from the infection.

I couldn't sleep last night,  17 years I've know this asshole....

Deployment, combat missions..he was in the truck behind me when I got drilled by a VBIED..he thought I was dead..watching our backs on raids with his SAW.

2003-2006, we saw each other nearly everday. PreMob-deployment-demob-recovery..reflagging the unit...

Matt got me into ARs and arfcom(so you can blame the WAHTF militia wars on him..lol)...weekends drinking at the cabin...goose hunting on the snake river..many, many great times...I pray an hope more to come.

No man has been gifted a better friend.....an obviously he is a tough bastard...

The plan tomorrow morning is to take him off the ventilator, if he hits his benchmarks an breath on his own.

He may snore like a Mack truck, but I've never seen him roll down a hill in his sleep like a dam buster... I was always lucky enough to get the Couch of Honor. God, I hope he gets through this stuff well enough to be "him" again.

He's much more alert, was confused for a bit. Answering questions better, I hope to hear what the plan is for the other surgeries he needs.

Matt under the use of alcohol, tends to be how you say??...opinionated of the proper employment of TTPs(tactics, techniques an procedures) on a rather impressive host of issues... sometimes, he is even correct..it's always entertaining though..

I've never had a bad time when Matt's present, a boon an reliable friend, always
