This is an email I received this morning.  Please keep G-Man in your thoughts and prayers.

"Good Morning!  I am a long time friend of Galen’s and I wanted to give you a health update.  Galen wanted me to post to his blog about what’s going on, but I didn’t think I could do that.  He wants all his blogger friends to know that he really needs your good loving thoughts and prayers sent to him now.  Galen is having a 3rd surgery this morning.  He does have a bacterial infection that has run amuck!  There have been as much as 4 antibiotics running through his IV at the same time.  It will take quite a long time to get back to normal (whatever the hell that is!).  We hope he comes home fast, we miss him lots!  Galen is thinking of his blogger family as usual, he is a wonderful friend to us all.                                                       Thanks so much,               Lynne"

Get well soon, G-Man!

Wow, thanks for the update. Those drug-resistant infections can be nasty and persistent.

Wishing you the best, G-Man! Let us know when they've tapered you off the meds enough for boredom to set in. We'll start up the 55s again to give you something to read!

Thank you so much for the update. Dear Galen, I am sure that I speak for others when I say that anyone who has been touched by your wonderful online presence is wishing you the best of health and happiness today and fast fast healing. I am so so sorry to hear of your pain and difficulty. You are in my thoughts and (feeble) prayers, and online love going your way. Take care, k.

Thank you so much for the update. I feel that I know him even though I've never meant him.

Our new resistance to antibiotics due to their drastic misuse in humans and animals is a growing problem that many of us have already had to face.

That's a good idea Ann.... we'll do some 55s for him when he is well enough to read them. I nominate you to spearhead the effort.

Lynne, please give him my regards and tell him that I haven't forgotten that he owes me a cup of coffee and a donut!!

This is Jenn (aka Signgurl). I'm not sure if Lynne reads this blog, but I will be sure to let Galen know about all of your well wishes.

Good lord! I am so sorry to hear this. I miss my G-man and his off beat--or was that off color--sense of humor. Hope the docs get you patched up soon and back to your Public, my friend. All my best pagan dances and incantations by moonlight your way.

Thank you for the update. Leave it to G-Man to be thinking of us as he fights his way through this.

Please tell him that my thoughts and prayers are with him. And tell him that I said "This is the time for him to kick ass."

Galen I pray you find the health that is waiting for you. Let your immune system work, albeit somewhat slower because of our condition it is weaker but not out for the count and neither are you!
