Babalu is currently in the ICU, on a ventilator and they are treating him for EEE. Test results won't be back for another day or two. He's not doing well right now and could use whatever positive thoughts and prayers you can send his way. If it is EEE and if Jeff makes it, he's in for months of recovery. So please keep Jeff, his wife and his kids in your thoughts and prayers.

Best wishes to Jeff and his family. I hope that everything works out for the best, and if there is anything I can do to assist, even just showing up and mowing the lawn, don't hesitate to ask.
