Michael Sinclair ~ Thoughts and Prayers Please!

#1

Post by royalwulff »

We learned this morning from Sharon, Michael's wife, that he is in the ICU, on a ventilator, COVID 19. She said that his oxygen is improved this morning. Sharon asked for no phone calls, please. She is running a fever and they are doing an expedited covid test on her.

Please keep them in your thoughts, prayers, wishes. He needs all the good vibes possible sent his way.
Thanks,
Mike

Oh dear, this is worrying. Thanks for letting us know, and, if possible, please tell Michael and his family that I'm praying for him, and them.

Heard this earlier today. Such news seems to have a bottomless well out there.....
Our prayer bank is large and growing, but this report will have us opening a whole new account.
I 'knew' Michael even before I met Michael. His insights and passion gave direction and understanding.
Hang in there, buddy, We're right there with you both.

I first met Michael and Sharon out in Lyons. Both wonderful people. I will keep them in my thoughts.

We've got them both on the prayer list. Neither of them need to get sick as they're both a bit "fragile". Anyone in close contact please keep us informed.

Michael is truly a friendly and talented gentleman. I do hope he pulls through and that his wife avoids infection.

Thank you for informing us Mike. This is tough news to wake up to. Michael can get through this, he has “ the fighting heart “ and has overcome challenges before - though I know this is a biggie. I send my love to Michael and Sharon and hope along with all the others here for better news to come.

Thanks for posting this, Mike. I met Michael at one of the Colorado Cane Conclaves some years back and was immediately impressed by his generosity and patience with my questions. All good wishes to him and Sharon.

Oh, no. Thoughts and prayers are going out right now. Michael has been "guiding" me through my bamboo fishing experience since the beginning -- every month, I fish rods he refinished for me or sold to me. He is a true gentleman who has made great contributions to the written history of the bamboo rod.
