I just spoke with Tom's family. He had a pretty rough time with this latest surgery, and is now in a regular room. It sounds as though he is in fairly good spirits and is receiving our messages. He will probably be in the hospital for another week or so.
GET WELL TOM ! :D

Get well soon,

Hey Tom ,my man,:
I understand you had a pretty rough surgery but you have pulled thru with flying colors. I had just had five surgeries the year before we first met in Carlisle in 2001 (I think). I can only offer this advise: Take in slow in the rehab phase and forget being macho - it ain't worth it. If you think you can do all the things immediately ( 2 to 3 weeks ) after surgery take my advise and think twice. If you need a chauafer (driver) to get to Carlisle, I'll plan to come thru the Pittsburg area and pick you up - you know whatever it takes. Best wishes to you and yours. Here's to a speedy recovery.

Regards,

Tom Adkins

Tom Update 4/27/05

Spoke to Tom today. He was just starting to get back on his feet again following a nasty infection, but has suffered another setback that will likely keep him in the hospital for a bit longer. Overall he's still in better shape than he was a few weeks back, and hopefully this latest setback won't hold him back too long. I told him I'd pass along a hello to everyone. Keep Tom in your thoughts as he makes his way through this latest ordeal. He'll be back here as soon as possible, but as I told him the primary thing he needs to do for now is rest and recover. He might be posting his own update here in the next few days hopefully. He doesn't think Carlisle is very likely, but from what I know of Tom personally, I wouldn't completely rule him out quite yet.

Whether he's there or not, I foresee a toast to Tom at the McKay's Cave!
Best wishes for a speedy recovery Tom!

Hello everyone,

Thanks for the posts, emails & phone calls. I'm still in the hospital, but feeling much better. I'm not sure when I'll finally get to go home.

Carlisle is less than 3 weeks away and maybe still a chance I'll be there. If not, there are plenty of other Opel events to look forward to.

Thanks again,
~ Tom

Tom, I'm really glad to see/hear you're better. Great to see you on line and on site again. I had hopes, slim ones, of having my GT at Carlisle but it just won't happen this year. So if you're like me and can't get to Carlisle, and if you're up to it, OMC is only 102 days away. That's just a shade over 3 months for more recupe time, and it wouldn't hurt to relax a bit and not rush things. I'm sure folks would understand if you couldn't be at either one though. Knowing best wishes for a good recupe are from me as well as all on the site.

2006 Update

Tom had his surgery yesterday. It took about 7 hours, but apparently the docs were able to get everything done. I'm guessing he's got a couple of weeks of recovery time in the hospital, but at least the road to recovery has finally started!

Wish him well and keep him in your thoughts!

I'll give additional updates whenever possible.

Cheers for now!
Todd K.
