Unhappy RIP MY DEAR FRIEND

Please pray for my friend Mike...he is the guy I used to work with in NY that moved to Virginia and we lost touch for 20 years until I found him on Classmates.com in 2008...
Turned out that he manages a Chevy dealership in Virginia and that is where I bought my 'ROCKETSHIP' (his name for my car)...
I finally got to see him again last year when Keith and I went to pick up my 'HWAY STR'...
We've kept in touch by phone on and off since last May when I took delivery and last saw him...
I found out tonight that he had a very, very serious medical emergency and surgery yesterday, and he is in intensive care right now...
Coincidentally, I had just spoken to him this Wednesday, the day before he got so sick, and I told him, yet again, that everytime I talk about my Camaro, I tell the story of being re-united with my long lost best friend...
I will be calling his friends at the dealership tomorrow for updates...
I would appreciate my Camaro5 family members joining me to pray for his full recovery...
I am so upset by this scary news...
Here is a photo of him handing me the keys on delivery day...

Thank you all for your prayers and support...
I just spoke to one of Mike's friends and he is in extremely serious condition and still in ICU after having a very serious emergency surgery to SAVE HIS LIFE....
I cannot get into too much detail out of respect for his privacy, but let me just say this: he needs TONS of prayers to not only save his life right now, but to help him make a full recovery, hopefully....
I am 'beside myself' with sadness and devastation for what he and his family are going through right now...
I will do my best to keep you updated as I hear from his friend that will be keeping me informed....
I hate to think that I finally got a chance to see him again after so many years apart, just to lose him now...
Something (I believe God) made me call him on Wednesday...I was in the middle of working, and I just had this feeling that I had to call him AT THAT MOMENT...keep in mind that I hadn't spoken to him in MONTHS...thankfully, I listened to my 'inner voice'...if I had ignored that urgent need to call then, and waited, I would never forgive myself right now...
We had a nice 'phone visit' and he sounded fine...who knew that hours later everything would change...

I will give all of you this advice: make sure to make time for your family and friends while they are still with you right now, because you just never know what will happen tomorrow...
Don't hold grudges, forgive whenever possible, and never forget to tell the people in your life how much they mean to you...
Tomorrow is promised to no one...

I love you guys/gals....we are all family on here and you have been there for me since 'day 1', whatever I have had to deal with...you all mean the world to me...thank you!!!

He lives in Manassas, but I didn't think to ask which hospital he is in right now...I will get more info in the coming days, and I will let everyone know his prognosis...

If he lives in Manassas hes probably in Enova-Fairfax Hospital. A pretty good place to be.
