I got word late last night that Nick was in an ATV accident and his mother Joy flew out there to be with him. He's out of state and was care flighted to a hospital in Missouri where he underwent surgery for many internal injuries. He was taken into surgery for the second time yesterday because his blood pressure keeps dropping. Nick's injuries are critical and they have him on a ventilator. Please keep Nick and his family in your prayers.

Thank you Jim.

I also received a very nice message (PM) from Gary Thornton who is a friend of Nick's, and wish to thank him for his information.

Our prayers are with Nick at this time.

This from Stacy Hodkey:

I will ask her for an address to send cards...Dave
*******************************************************************************

Hey Everyone,


I asked if they need anything at the hospital and Brittany told me they are doing okay. However, his mom will be spending all her time out there while Nick recovers. Right now she has not been to a hotel but they found one through the hospital for $35.00 a night. She will probably be there for several weeks (I was assuming more like a month). She has not asked for anyone to defray her expenses but I have already talked to several people who want to help. So I just wanted to put this out there for everyone. By no means feel obligated b/c they have not even reached out for any type of help at this point- this is just something nice that Brittany thought could happen if people felt moved to do so (and I concur).



If you would like to contribute, feel free to send any checks to me but make them out to:

Fund for Nick Aycock and Family

Then I will be having the bank transfer all the funds to his mother and will let her know who contributed. If you have any questions please feel free to call me 305.3948.



So far we do have 7 nights paid for!



Thanks for your time, care and concern,

Stacey

I just received an update from his brother, Nate. Nick has been in surgery for the past 5 and a half hours. They are setting up an account at a Vandalia, Ohio credit union to help with the expenses that Nick and his family are going to incur. I will add the information when it is set up. I will also include the credit unions information, so that people can verify that these funds will go to Nick.

The main thing we can do right now, is pray for Nick's full recovery.

Thanks,

Gary Thornton

An account has
been setup for the benefit of Nick Aycock & Family. The address is
...800 Falls Creek Dr. Vandalia, OH 45377 Phone number is (937)898-7800.
If you are out of town or state you can mail checks straight
to the bank just add ATTN:Lynn McCabe .to the envelope.

Update...Nick finished up with the surgery to reconnect his colon and bowel. It looks like that went very well. The docs are going to let him rest a couple of days, then do some more work on Thursday or Friday. His family is doing very good as well. His brother said that all of the concern and kind words that people have been showing is really keeping the family together.

My wife and I went to see Nick yesterday. He is still in a medical induced coma. He has several more surgeries ahead of him. The doctors are "cautiously optimistic" concerning his recovery. He has developed pneumonia due to the respirator. They are saying that Nick will have set backs. The doctors are doing everything possible including prayer to get Nick through this.

It is so awesome to see the effect that Nick has on so many people. He truly is one of the greatest guys that I have ever known. Calamity posted the Nickaycock.com site. His family is trying to update it daily.

If you'd like to send a free e-card to Nick, the link is http://www.sluhospital.com/en-US/CWSApps/CheerCards/Default.aspx?language=en-US
His room is covered with them. These are really helping his family cope with the recovery. Please feel free to send one, whether you know him like a brother or never personally met him. I promise you that he is worth the time.
