Medical Update

Hi All. I have recently begun riding with the Fogbees and have gotten to know a few of you fairly well. With that said, I wanted to provide a quick medical update. Some of you know that I suffered an embolic event (TIA) this summer and have been undergoing tests to try to figure out what caused it. They found a small hole in my heart that they repaired surgically this week. The good news is that the surgery was a complete success and I am back home doing well. The better news is that the doctors have cleared me to begin riding again in a couple of weeks. Please keep my family in your thoughts and prayers and I look forward to riding with the group again very soon. I hope you don't mind me sharing.

Chad,

Great news. I don't think we have met but you are in my prayers for not only a great recovery but more fruitful years to be a cyclist.

Great news! For all it's faults, 21st Century medicine can sometimes be spectacular.
