On Friday, my wife received this message from Tim:

Apparently, the doctors at UW figured out that his problems were being caused by a surgical mesh that was used in a previous hernia operation. The way it was explained to me, nerves had grown into the mesh, and were causing the incredible pain and nausea that was in turn causing his alarming weight loss. Beyond that I know little. It does sound like he still has a lot of challenges to face in his future. But, the point is that now we can rest a little easier knowing that he actually has a future. Thanks everyone for all the prayers and kind words. I know it meant a lot to him, and it reaffirms what I know about all the good folks out there in the Camaro community.

When I originally posted this thread I was hoping against hope that I would one day be able to write a happy ending for it. I'm not sure if this qualifies as happy yet, but I'd definitely call it hopeful; and for right now, that's good enough for me!

So it looks like you're going to have a couple of passengers next year, Jayhawk...

Now that sounds like it will be the perfect happy ending!
Let me know what day and I'll be there for Tim and Tim Jr.!
This awesome news. Thanks Gary.
