Another Prayer Request
A lot of you know Roger Bard who plays on my Team 1 Sports team. He went in for a check up and found he needed a stent for a heart issue. Upon further testing, he now needs a quadruple by pass and was immediately checked into the hospital. He has a slight fever so they are scheduling the procedure for Thursday. I know a lot of you know Roger...he is a class act and a fantastic player who now needs your prayers. Those of him that know him will like this...the first thing he said after he was told he needed the operation was "when can I play softball again?"
Lift him up daily and I thank you for it.

Alan,
Prayers sent from the Florida Classics. I've been there as I had a triple bypass myself a couple of years ago. All the best to Roger....

Alan, thank you for the post. I will definitely keep Roger and his family in my prayers, particulary during this Easter season. I only met Roger last year, however; he is without doubt a "Top Shelf" individual. Regards. BJ

We do not know Roger but the Columbus LX Team sends their prayers. We await in faith the future message of hearing how the operation was a "total success" & how he will soon be able to continue playing the game.
Keep us posted!!

I spoke with Wendy (Roger's wife) a short time ago and she said that Roger doesn't have a feaver any longer and the tests they ran today came back looking good. It looks like the surgery will take place Thursday.

I'm sure Roger appreciates all the thoughts and prayers that are being sent his way.

I'll try to post updates on Roger's condition when they're available.

I texted Roger the other day and passed along everyone's thoughts and prayers. Roger appreciates them all.

Wendy texted me about noon and said they were beginning to prep Roger for his surgery. As soon as I get an update from Wendy I'll do my best to let everyone know.

Doc .. thanks for the kind words, you are truly a class act as are the rest of the ENR bunch. Hopefully our little shortstop will come out of this better than ever. He was one of the last people you'd think this would happen to. During tournaments in our down time, me and Beaz head to the whirlpool and Roger goes and runs on the treadmill. Go figure.

BJ , Dave and Baer.. good to hear from you again. We'll pass along the messages and please guys, keep him in your prayers.

Thanks,

Dave Alarcon (Conman)

About 8:00 pm Wendy texted and said that Roger was out of surgery and everything went very well. She said that he'll be in CVICU through the night and that they're hoping to move him tomorrow sometime.

Thank you for the thoughts and prayers. I'll be sure to pass them along to Roger when I can.

Update - Wendy says that Roger is sitting up this morning and they are expecting to move him back upstairs this morning.

As expected, Wendy is a pretty happy camper. I'm sure there are quite a few of us that are enjoying the good news.

Update -

I talked to Roger yesterday and he's at home recoperating from surgery. Roger ended up staying in the hospital an extra day or two because of some issues that arose but in true Roger form, he got through them and was released.

As much as I (and I'm sure all of us) would like to see Roger on the field this week, it's going to be a little while. Per doctors orders, Roger is doing laps around his house when he can to rebuild his endurance. He's also using a breathing device to keep his lungs clear so that he doesn't have to go back to the hospital.

Roger was very thankful for all the thoughts and prayers everyone sent his way. I'm sure that when he makes it back to the field he'll do his best to thank everyone.

Wendy is also doing better. As you can imagine she was very concerned for Roger and wore herself out doing everything she could to help. There's still a ways to go but Wendy can breath a little easier and get some much deserved rest.
