MagnumForce, just had emergency surgery

Sunday, June 16, 2002 8:22 PM

This morning we had to rush Brent back to the Hospital, He passed out with extreamly low blood pressure, This afternoon they discovered that the ulcer had gone all the way thru and also went into an artery, he was rushed to surgery at 820 PM. and got out at 1100. They think they got the bleeding stopped. He almost died this afternoon, he has a long recovery ahead. He needs lots of well wishes and prayers.

Lots of get well cards would cheer him up, you can send them to Brent Kneebush, 10040 Pittsford Rd., Pittsford, Michigan 49271

Let him know he is in my prayers. Also, tell him Jeff Gordon scored his 200th Top Ten finish in his career this weekend (after 308 starts). That should make MagnumForce smile!

He'll definately be in my thoughts and prayers. Thats so sad I hope he recovers fully (when he can ride coasters!) But right now to be healthy and alive is the greatest gift for him.
