He just ask me to post that anyone that has Pm'ed or E-mailed him that he would return those once he is back up and on his feet in a few days.
You see that?? Tags goes to Florida... wears out Texas de' Brazil... and ends up having emergency surgery to fix his intestines.

No more Texas de' Brazil for Tags!

Get well soon bud. Lay off the stapler for a little while.

Just got off the phone with Tags...seems it was alittle more than he thought.

His simple 30 min. surgery turned into a 4.5hr deal. His intestine had ruptured, they had to remove 24 inches of it..He was pretty doped up when I talked to him. But he ask me just to pass the info on.

He will be in the hospital for the next 3-4 days from what the doctors told him.

Just keep him in your thoughts!

Guys I guess I will be the bearer of more bad news.

I called Brandon Melton to tell him about Tags, Only to find out that Brandon's Dad passed away today. I didn't try to get alot of info. I talked to Sarah but didn't want to keep her long at this time either.

Please Keep him and his family in your thoughts and prayers also

Wow, sad news for John and Brandon. Wish the best for everyone.

Anthony, Don't call me! Seems that anyone you talk to on the phone is cursed somehow . . . If you call me, don't expect me to pick up

What a messed up day.

Brandon... dude, I'm really sorry to hear about your dad. My thoughts are with ya man.

As for Tags... he's a fighter. He'll be fine. Nothing like talking to him yesterday and him explicitly explaining to me what he was experiencing. Thinking he shoulda hit the doc's office sooner, but he'll be fixed up like new.

Please..., and this goes for everybody... no more bad news today.

No Tag at The C this weekend. Hope you get better soon. Remember we are not as young as we use to be when we went to T&L.

Brandon very sorry to hear about you and your families loss.

Brandon... sorry to hear about your loss. Hang in there buddy. You and you're family are in my prayers.

Tag... See what happens when you spend a few hours at an all you can eat meat buffet... or is it all the time you've spent shacking up with other guys at the races...... Hope you're back on your feet soon. Until then milk your injury for all it's worth!!!!

Just got off the phone with Tags. He is in some pain/discomfort, but that is to be expected. He said as long as they don't take away his little button he will be fine. LOL

He is in good spirits, laughing and joking. May just be the Meds. though.

He said thanks for all the well wishes, thoughts and prayers.
