Mike, are you okay? If I didn't know better I'd swear you're having/had a stroke.

Anybody here know this guy and have a way to contact him?

Tom, good for you for being concerned. I have noticed that many of Mike's previous posts were written in similar style... I think he may just not take the time to make corrections... note that even the subject has a typo. Maybe difficulties with his keyboard/keypad? See a sample of his previous posts linked below.

That is great Mike, we've come a long way in the management of strokes. Caught early, quality of life really doesn't have to suffer....
