With regrets, I have confirmed that, a friend of mine, and one of our own, TFMaster, had a heart attack early Thurs. For those not in the know, TFMaster is a known customizer, moderator at this site, and proprietor of Transtopia.
He was aware when it was happening, had his wife call an ambulance, and was even able to walk to the vehicle himself.
He went into Intensive Care, and has undergone both stint and balloon procedures, and is now under sedation. It appears that his arteries are clogged to the point where his heart only pumps at 10% efficiency.
He has been diagnosed with various heart issues, and the doctors have told his wife that there is a good probability that he may not survive. His problems are being viewed as genetic; his father had several heart issues during his life and passed before the age of 60.
TFM is 31yrs old, married, with one male child, age 8.
Please show some support, even if it is just an email or card. He is at St Mary's Mercy in Livonia, MI. PM me for more info. TFM cannot communicate right now, so no phone calls, please. At the least send some good thoughts and positive energy.
All of this info is straight from his wife Lauren, and I am posting it by her own request. TFMaster's life revolved around customizing and the community. Please refrain from any kind of gossip or embellishment out of respect to him and his family. I'll update as the info becomes available to me.
Best wishes, buddy.
I told the fire to go **** itself, and it did.
