gRegorLove little g big R

I'm not dead, yet.

I think I'll go for a walk.

Many of you already know this, since some friends have been really great about communicating everything, but on Saturday May 12th my heart apparently started fibrillating – beating so fast that no real circulation happens. I passed out and had seizure-like symptoms. Thankfully I was with friends, who quickly called 911. For fuller details, feel free to read the “What Happened” forum.

I basically wanted to write to let everyone know that I have been recovering amazingly well, and it's miraculous. I have definitely felt the love and prayers of many friends from around the country and I want to thank you all so much. I finally was able to read up on the rest of the above-linked forum and there were some really touching things in there. I definitely feel loved and I hope I do a good job to display the same to all of you.

I have been walking around pretty regularly the last several days; I feel quite normal, actually; an MRI last night showed no problems and my memory is fine except for during the event and the coma, of course (which I'd rather not remember anyway). I will be having a defibrillator installed in the next day or two, hopefully I should get a more firm schedule on that today. After that and a little bit of recovery, I'll be able to go home. I've recovered so well that apparently I won't even need any rehab after the surgery, since I can walk, talk, and all that jazz, just like normal.

Words cannot really describe how blessed I feel. Thank you for everything.

“having a defibrillator installed” makes you sound like a car. VROOM VROOM.

Man, I can't tell you how happy it made me to see your Twitter post this morning. =D I've been keeping informed, but that just made me really happy. Glad to hear you're recovering well.

Now we need to make “gRegor Lives.” T-Shirts. =P

your life has been a miracle unfolding before our eyes. too much to ever put into words. i will always have a sense of awe about what God has done here.

we need to make shirts that read -
“gRegor Love: more game comatose than most men fully conscious.”

Yeah, I'd comment, but really... I have no words.

Whoa. Man, I had NO idea any of this had happened. Just read the What Happened site... all I can say is, you are a blessed man, Mr. M. Remind me never to get on your bad side... God likes you too much. Hahah.
I'm glad to see you back; much love to you and yours, from me and mine. If you need ANYthing, just call me... because I'd rather tell you no over the phone. Hahah. Sorry. It's the best I've got. — j3k

Great news! I'm very happy for you Gregor and am looking forward to seeing you on the outside! Maybe while they're installing things you could get a new hard drive and some more RAM. How about a wireless card in your head so do don't even have to access a computer anymore! Heh!

WB. I'm going to post this over on the message board too. If you have a problem with it, you should be able to delete it because I've given you full administrative privileges.

ron ron
you're title reminds me of a mark twain quote “the reports of my death are greatly exxagerated.” or something like that. well, i guess that means i won't be seeing you tomorrow then. good luck.

laurie laurie

I had no idea until I read Jeeves' blog this morning! SO thankful it's not your time yet. I don't know Brandon, but I'm totally with him: We need to market “gRegor Lives” tees...

Jean & Ed Jean & Ed
We've read about miracles, but we've never known one until now. Hope you felt our prayers from across the ocean.
You are surrounded by incredible friends, but we know you already know that. Cherish them.
We love you, Miracle Man.

i am so behind on internet, i didn't even know you posted this. i didn't even know you were “typing” again.
i am so glad you are!
i am so thankful the LORD had favor on your life and allowed you to taste life one again. He is faithful.
you are awesome. we should talk very soon.

Brooks Brooks
Hey - we had no idea until your post! I am SO glad that you are getting better. Just caught up a bit on the “what happened” forum. Praise God for everything He has done in your life and for the support your family has had through your friends!

I'm glad you are well and we would love to see you again, even if we have to rescue you from the side of the road. :)

Amy Reynolds Amy Reynolds
I'm really glad that you're alright. I'm sorry about what happened and it's a great feeling to know that people still feel blessed by others and their prayers. i know that mine are with you.

sorry i haven't talked to you in a while. looking forward to reading again.

Hey man I'm amazed at what God has done for you. I can only guess at His purposes for allowing it all, but I know they are all good and for your eternal benefit- that much your already know as well. IT probably occured to you that many people across the nation you don't even know have been praying for you and some prolly still are since I've been a bad friend and havn't updated my prayer-for-gRegor possie, so be on the watch for your good health to grow into super human powers. Maybe you could star on Heros next season!

Oh and I wonder would the t-shirt idea work as a commerical???? “He Loves. He Lives! He can program a beat up Commodor into the world's first, self-aware AI! And, all this gRegor can be yours free! with your love, so apply now at! (While supplies last.)” hmmm dunno about that. anyway. Happy to have you back and kickin. peace bro.

My favorite liberterian and worthy opponent,

I happened to find out earlier this week about your recent situation. I randomly logged on to TM's website, and Lindsay posted a prayer request for you.

You are certainly in my prayers man. Its incredible how life can be so short, and precious. As we learned at TM, let us always seize every moment that God gives us.

Miss you man! I'll have to come on here and read your wise insights on life a little more often.

We have never met. I follow some of your stuff on the IN take blog. Noticed it was rather quiet. I thought I heard your Mom was going through some serious medical stuff and I was praying for her. Didnt know about your situation. Very glad to hear you are doing well. May goodness and mercy relentlessly chase you and your Mom.
