Bad news, Jake called me and told me that he was in the hosipatial for a week. He had a stroke.He said that he was about 60% of what he was and is very upbeat about it.He is home now and has a lot of folks looking out for him. His neighbours are good people.I have met the most of them. He has Julian Beardsley there also.
Lets all keep him in our prayers.

Jake said that this would slow him down a bit but that he would still fly,just not today.He can still do his thing just slower. He will prevall,This I know for sure.I have known him to long to believe other than that.

Bud, when did this happen? I talked to Jake on the phone at lunch on Monday??
He seemed to be just fine and did not mention anything about it.

Thanks guys for the well wishes. God don't like me and the devil is jelouse, so I have nowhere to go. I'll be here a long time.

Scott, I went to the hospital at 3:00 that day. I wanted to make sure something was really wrong. It happened Sunday night and really didn't realize till I tried to get out of bed.

It's a bit wierd but I'm not going to let it get me down. I will have to give up cigs for sure and go to physical thearapy but that's part of life.

I'm a bit slower than normal and have a hard time walking but that will get better.

Again thanks for the support ya'lls the best folks I know.

~~JAKE~~

Jake,

Sorry to hear about the stroke. Glad to hear you've got good friends and neighbors around you helping you recover.

Stick with the no-smoking, and the physical therapy, and you may end up feeling even better than you did pre-stroke.

Take care.

Jake,
Praying for you. Get well soon. Next thing we know you'll be creating some Red Neck powered wheel chairs. Take it easy and follow the Dr's orders.
