In case some of you don't know but our friend, someone I've known LONG before MHC because White Castles has been a sponsor for YEARS... is having a very very very serious surgery that will keep him out of commission for TWO months. I'm assuming he'll miss Transworld but who knows maybe he'll make it ...

I hope when you guys are out there thinking about sending someone a card, prayer or make a phone call think about Kelly who is facing a very serious situation here in a day or so. Email his wife Neena or send cars to the info below... remember this is the guy who works day and night to bring you all this haunt tours, and evets at MHC along with his wife and Barry. I'm sure he'll be going again 100% for MHC... so lets make sure we support MHC to the hilt and say whats up to Kelly during this LONG and very painful process while he recovers.

YO KELLY... Anything we can do brother we'll be here for ya!!!

Thanks Larry

I'm keeping Kelly in my thoughts and I wish him a speedy recovery. If there is anything we can do to help, we're only 2 hours away.

When I have a chance I will pass along your thoughts and prayers to Kelly. He is going in to surgery this morning and hopefully it will not be as major as it possibly can be. Either way I am confident it will turn out good.

As for being out of commission for two months? Don't count in it! LOL Kelly will be off work for two months but, after about 2 weeks of recovery, he will be back at MHC planning from home.

Until then feel free to contact me with any questions on the tours, social events, or sponsorships (the areas the Kelly handles) and I will do my best to answer them for you.

Thanks again for the thoughts.

Stay strong my friend, Here's to a speedy recovery!

I appreciate all the well wishes. Your support has been very moving.

Here's the latest. I made it through phase 1; a heart catherazation procedure. I'll go back on the 25th for heart valve repair. I think Barry is right, I hope to be back on my keyboard working on MHC items within a couple weeks. At least for a couple hours a day.

Until then; I'm working hard planning our bus tours and parties for MHC.

Thanks for the support!

Kelly is doing great! His condition is as good as may be expected. Today was rough on him, tomorrow may be worse - but that's part of the ticker program.

We hope he'll step down from intensive care tomorrow; be in a regular care Thursday (which is his BIRTHDAY!) and be home Friday or Saturday.

If you'd like to email him birthday greetings, I'll share them with him on my blackberry. I think it would be great if some of you would email us photos of your smiling crazy faces - and I'll tape those up along with the cards at home to cheer him up! Thanks to Rainbow Brite for the inspiration for that; she was with us today (daughter Anne Collins).

Thank you for the love, prayers, kindness and support!

Wishing you all the best,

Great to hear the positive updates re: Kelly... Sounds like he's doing great (and getting better each minute!)

See you soon Kelly & Neena!

Great to hear the updates. All the posts here are just a testament to what great people Kelly and Neena are. Continued good recovery Kelly!

It's been 2 1/2 weeks since my surgery and I'm starting to get my energy back. Still not sleeping very well, but my doctor said that will improve as they cut back on my meds. The heart valve repair was successful. Still can't drive for 6 more weeks, but then I'll enter heart rehab and really start building my strength.

I greatly appreciate all the support on this forum and facebook posts. I will be at Transworld. MHC will have a booth, please stop by and say "Hi".

My next task for MHC is to finalize our Friday night bus tour and party. I hope to work a couple hours a day on my pc and make phone calls.

One of my best memories is waking up after surgery in the ICU and realizing I was alive! I've been given a second chance at life and I intend to appreciate every day.

Thanks again for all the well wishes and prayers!

Kelly, it's so great to hear your positive report! Glad you are on the mend and already embracing a new lease on life. Don't push yourself too hard and take it as easy as you can. We continue to send you healing thoughts, energy and prayers my friend and we look forward to seeing you at TW. Hugs to you and Neena!

Thanks Kelly. My progress is slow, but I am progressing. I'm hoping to start looking for a new building for our haunt soon. We had to move out last November as a full time tenant was moving into the shopping center space.

I saw an earlier post that you are selling your haunt. I wish you the best in your new path. I too think 2011 will be a fantastic season for haunts. Selling our haunt was discussed when this heart issue came up, but now I'm pretty confident my health will improve so we can continue.

See you at TW and at MHC this year,

Kelly Collins
