    We all wish nothing but the best for you, Brad.

    You have overcome so much in the past. This is just one more bump in the road. Hang in there.

    Could someone enlighten us as to what Brad's going through exactly? I've had the pleasure of meeting him at a gathering back when I lived in Cincinnati, but I never found out about the health problems until later.

    He would never tell you, Doc. He isn't the type to complain.

    He's in the hospital now for recurring severe headaches, and as I understand it, the result of an infection that they haven't been able to track down. He had to drop out of school this semester they were so bad and non-stop. They've been running a lot of tests, and he expects to be in the hospital through the weekend now.

    I talked to him tonight, and he sounded like he was in a lot of pain, but he never complains. He's been through a lot in his young life, more than I could ever imagine.

    Regardless of your religious or spiritual persuasion, please say a prayer or think good thoughts for Brad. He wants to be a doctor. The entire focus of his life is to help other people. He's been knocked down over and over again with health problems, and he keeps getting back up, and never, ever complains. He just wants a chance in life to help people, to have a chance at a normal life.

    Being a man has nothing to do with age. It's about how you handle the cards you're dealt. I hope I can be half the man Brad is.

    I'm so very, very proud to know him and to call him a friend.

    Get well soon. May you find some relief and some answers.

    He posted yesterday on the peanut board that he was home now and they think they have found what's been causing all the trouble.

    I hope it's not the pitching, 'cause that's not likely to get better any time soon. Get better, LF!

    Re: Prayers needed for LF

    Just now (Christmas Eve) read this thread. Sorry for not knowing earlier and Best Wishes Larkin Fan! If we can ever do anything for Brad, somebody on here let us know, because, well, he just doesn't seem the type that would ask himself!

    Merry Christmas and Happy 2006 LF! Get yourself well, my friend, 'cause the season's just around the bend!
    Meanwhile, you'll certainly be in our prayers here at the 'Roser household.

    Praying for him too. I used to post with him a lot on the music threads, and he always came across as a really good guy.
