Just got this email from John (OMG)

Hey guys.  I almost died today, and I’m I’m going to be in the intensive care unit of my local hostpital for at least another day.  I can’t really explain what happened but what I though was a stomach virus was off the charts pancreitis and other stuff. By the time I got to the hospital, my body temperature was plummeting and I was about to die from severe dehydration.  If you guys could put up a thread letting people know that would be great I could use some help.

Let’s all say a prayer for John.

Also obviously if you’re waiting on an email from him or a laser helmet please understand what he is going through right now.

Wow, that’s awful.  His family must be so worried….if you’re reading this John, you will be in our thoughts, wishing you a speedy recovery.  don’t go making any crazy machines though…I don’t think lasers are going to help you get through this one!


Tried a lot of things, never stuck with anything. Don’t do that

Good lord!!!  John, I hope this wasn’t the result of one of the crazy ‘experiments’ on your body that you’ve related on this board.  I worry about you over doing those.  Anyway, take care of yourself - your bride, your spawn, and your disciples here need you…

So sorry to hear that, John. My thoughts are with you and your family.  Get that intravenous drip flowing on max!
I’ll shoot you a PM about your dehydration issue when you’re back in action.
I consider myself a cellular hydration specialist.

Get well, buddy!

Wow.  Really shocked to hear about OMG. 
I’m sure he will be fine and he is in the best place to help him through whatever it is he has/had.
Take care OMG and take your time getting back to full health, please don’t overdo anything and rush back to work.  Your health is the most important thing.
Take Care, Mal

Thanks to everyone for the well-wishes, but John’s not out of the woods yet. They moved him from the ICU today but will need to keep him in the hospital at least another couple of days.

When it rains it pours - the company I’ve been with for the past 11 years went out of business today. But John has agreed to hire me and with my help he’ll be able to do a lot more volume as soon as he’s back to work.

GREAT to hear from you, LB. Wonderful to hear that he’s out of ICU.  With all of the prayers that are coming his way, he’s bound to be on the road to recovery.

Sorry to hear about your job.  You are, however, in on the ground floor of what I’m sure will be a business dynasty for your hubby.  With his imagination and perseverance,  he can’t fail!

Hey LB – great to hear that John is out of ICU. I hope that he goes from strength to strength quickly. Clearly he needs to take his time recovering so please help him to not “overdo it” when he is out of hospital.

So sorry to hear your news too, it all seems so unfair. However with John’s passion and your support I’m sure that you guys will be an awesome team and will soon turn things around. You both strike me as salt of the earth people and you deserve great things. My thoughts and prays are with you both!

Take care.

John, Im SO sorry to hear about this initially awful news. Im very happy to know you made it out of the ICU! All of my thoughts and prayers are with you during your certain recovery. All the best during the next few weeks of dealing with the current health challenge. LB, sorry to hear about the job, seems to be the situation all over the world at least.  But so glad you get to join the lasering world full time! We benefit huge and so does John. So blessing in disguise? (the job not Johns situation)

OMG knows a lot of you are concerned about him (and of course his helmets!), so we wanted to give you an update on each.  First of all, it’s highly doubtful that he will be out of the hospital before Christmas.  His condition was so painful that it wrecked his breathing and it’s going to take a while to build that back up. 

I don’t think we’re letting him finish any more helmets this year.  He knows a lot of people were on the schedule, so he will be refunding the $10 deposit and when the time comes for him to make those helmets, obviously they don’t need to leave that deposit again to hold their spot if they still want it. He does want to build helmets. It’s what he does and what he’s going to keep doing.  I’ll be there to help get him back on his feet and make sure the business gets back on track.

By the way, if you’re wondering if having the most painful malady know to man has increased his swagger - the answer is YES! smile

Been awhile since I have chimed in on this forum, but want to say this junk could not have happened to a nicer guy.  I remember a couple years back having hernia surgery where the recovery was excruciating.  Even though I had time off work it was horrible.  I couldn’t walk without it spazzing on me and throwing me into tortorous pain.  Picking stuff up was absolute hell.  I still have problems to this day,  my stomach looks jacked up and I probably walk funnier, but at least that hell week is behind me. 

@ The Laserbabe-  I was out of work October 2010 and did not regain employment till April 2011.  I put my house on the market in November 2010 and am just now closing tommorrow 1 year and 1 month later(finally).  During that time I have burned up all my savings carrying that mortgage along with present rent.    I also sold a bunch of stuff including my laser helmet :((last thing to go).  Luckily, I did have OMG’s LLLT scar healer device,  so have not been totally devoid of LLLT.  Unfortunately I have definitely lost some serious ground since stepping down from a full helmet though. 

  But from all this bad news….............. something extroardinary came.    I moved to an awesome town with TONS of stuff to do.  My job is now the best I have ever had.  The work is a step forward and the people at my job are honest and respectful.  Yep, I work with real people(John knows the story from my last job) now in an atmosphere that is both challenging and laid back.  And I have hit a stretch of musical inspiration, writing 8 songs in the course of 5 months.  Even though things are still a little dark on the financial front, life keeps looking better in other aspects by the day.  So I hope that both OMG and the Laserbabe keep their heads up because I am certain that they have a bright future waiting.    Always darkest before the dawn as they say.    Anyway,  get well, keep your heads up and you both will see.  It definitely gets better!

Dear OMG,

You are the man, my friend! So you WILL beat this, of that I am sure and I am pulling for you - I only just saw this, so wanted you to know I was shocked and concerned and that you are both in my prayers - if you and LB ever want to come somewhere for a little R & R and some nice (warmer) ocean water - mia casa sua casa.

I think this is an appropiate time to express our profound appreciation to OMG for everything he has done for all of us and the hair growing community. Perhaps others would like to chime in too, but these are the irrerpressible OMG qualties that I have come to know and love:-

Passion, creativity, inventiveness (ya think for an inventor…?), kindness, generosity, intensity of commitment, fire, animal lover, dedicated, industrious, determined, big hearted, indefatiguable, relentless, daring, intelligent and brave.

So crank Beethoven 9 loud OMG - we need you 100%.

And your video with Nidhogge and Immortal - wow, looks so great man. Step aside golf channel, here comes OMG;‘s channel…  Way to go!

Three Cheers for OMG!  - you have done so much for the community and we are all extaroridnarily grateful, and just for you I will wear your helmet to Xmas eve service and Xmas dinner… - although I better take it iff when I go do my handstands in the ocean, right???

God speed and God Bless OMG - heh Lord, if you’re up there, fix the guy will ya! After all its OMG and we all love him !!!

M
