Thank you so much.

I just wanted to pop in quickly and say thank you to the many people from the forum who sent thoughts and prayers for my son, Michael.

As some know, he was involved in an horrific knife attack suffering a life threatening stab wound to his neck. Fortunately, his spinal cord was not damaged and the neurosurgeons did a magical job of repairing the wound taking special care of nerve ends etc.

Michael lost so much blood as a result of the attack, he almost died. However, with the skills of the emergency services and surgeons involved, as well as the thoughts and prayers of so many people, he is at home slowly recuperating.

Michael's friend, Craig, while trying to protect him, also suffered a serious stab wound to his arm. His friend, Jesse, who was suffering from a broken foot at the time of the attack, had the foresight and bravery to use whatever she could to stop the blood loss, waiting for the Paramedics to arrive.

The culprit has been arrested and remains in custody until his trial.

The attack was a great shock to all. But as friends together, they are determined to get over it.

Once again, thank you all for your kind words, thoughts and prayers.

I'm so happy to hear your son is recuperating, Mike. As a member of a body, when one member suffers the others suffer, too. Happy to hear of the great news.

Although I don't personally know you Mike and have never met you, I do know of you and the respect you command from the SEO community!

With that said, as many others have already noted, I do send my wishes to both yourself, family and son and excellent news to hear he is recovering nicely and on the road back!

Cheers

Mike,

I'm so glad to hear Michael is making a strong recovery. How fortunate he is to have the kind of friends who were capable of keeping their composure during such a traumatic event.

What a crazy world this is. It just goes to show that it can happen to anyone at any time, even those who you care deepest about.

Our prayers are with you and everyone in your family and everyone involved--good luck for a speedy recovery.
