Brothers,

One of our senior members and most passionate activists is in need of our prayers and thoughts.

Yesterday Kirk has a severe stroke and is now very sick in hospital.

I was contacted by his wife this afternoon who told me what happened.

For any of you who know Kirk and want more info please PM me.

Get well cards can be sent, via me or directly to the hospital.

Kirk,

I'm shocked and saddened by this news. I hope and pray for your recovery. You have worked as a tireless advocate for the abused and I honor you for that work. Come back to us soon, Buddy.

Lots of love,

John

What a horrible thing to happen to such a nice person, but Kirk is a fighter, he will get thru this. I'm thinking about you, man.

Kirk,

Recover and come back to the site and tell that you are doing very well.

I saw the video you created. It was so good.

Alexey

I spoke to Kirks wife again this morning and he has made some progress, he has regained some movement in his bad side, being able to move 1 foot again and can express YES and NO verbally although its a struggle.

Basically there are 2 types of stroke, a bleeding stroke or a blockage stroke. Kirk has had a blockage stroke so they expect some permanent brain damage.

The prognosis is however not too bad. The doctors say as he is making progress, thats likely to continue with the good parts of Kirks brain compensating for the damaged part.

His wife said "He will be back" even if he has to use his other hand to type with on its own.

That said it may be a few months before he is back.....

He still needs your support and prayers.

regards

WOS

Modern medicine is pretty good in this field, and he has age on his side.
He is a fighter, and he will win,
