Donnie Carver update

Russell Moore, fearless leader of IIIrd Tyme Out got back to us last night with some more info on Donnie Carver’s health situation.

“I talked to Donnie earlier this morning (January 5th) and he’s back home and feeling much better. They put two stints in place while he was in the hospital and have him on medication (blood thinner, etc.).  He has to return to the hospital in two weeks to have two additional stints put in place and, also, have balloon angioplasty performed on another artery. After that, as long as everything goes well with the next procedures, he’ll need 7-10 days of R&R and he should be back on the road with us!  That should be somewhere around the first weekend in February.

We all realize that this event could have been SO much worse than what it has turned out to be……and it’s bad enough as it is……..and we’re thankful that the Lord saw fit to leave Donnie with us for a while longer!!

Donnie, his family, and all of the band and their families, would like to say ‘THANKS’ to everyone for your thoughts, prayers, e-mails, texts and phone calls!!!  It means so much to all of us!!!

Like I told Donnie, ‘You can’t keep a good man down!!!’ and we’ll be back at full speed in no time!!!”
