He went to the hospital (upper valley medical center in troy) sunday night i believe and has been stuck there since.
The doctors believe it is something to do with his kidneys. He got some tests done thursday, and they have to send them to ohio state, so he wont get the results back for to weeks. Doctors arent really sure right now what the exact problem is of what caused it. In that past month or two he has lost about 20lbs, as he is down to 183 now.
about three weeks ago he had bronchitis and was just getting over that, and after Mike wolfs bench meet he was having problems with his forearms and the doctor said it was some case of arthritis. Not sure if all those problems are related but He has had a string of bad luck in the past couple of months.
Please Keep him in your prayers guys.

Hey guys. Just got back from the hospital last night. Spend 10 days over there. 3 days in the ICU. I am diagnosed with Acute Renal Infection. I guess both of my kidneys are only functioning at less than 10 %. Not really sure what happened. I went to the ER Sunday morning last week, and had a blood pressure of 239/192 .... I guess I am very lucky I didn't have a stroke or heart attack. I guess my veins are tougher than normal people. I guess benching almost 500 pounds helps.
Anyways, You guys probably won't see me on the platform soon.
Wish everyone a Merry Christmas.
