As of Friday morning, Michael Badnarik was awake and spunky. He asked what happened to him and how long had he been out? He was told it was Christmas and he asked what year. He is very weak of course but he is improving very rapidly! They removed the temporary pacemaker and the doctors are very pleased with Michael's progress. He is still heavily sedated to keep him calm and immobile. So, he is not awake due to the medication but is getting better every day.
Please don't call the hospital - he needs to rest. You are welcome to send cards and e-mails to the hospital. Thank you for all of your prayers, they are greatly appreciated.

Wishing all a happy and healthy week as we end the year 2009.
