Default Prayers for Mike Nichols (Black Thunder Boats)

Just received an email from Mike Nichols (Black Thunder Boats) about an accident he had on the way to LOTO during the Labor Day weekend. He and his brother-in-law were pulling his 43 Black Thunder when they had the accident. It totaled the boat and truck! The truck caught on fire with his brother-in-law trapped inside but thankfully, people stopped to help and got him out before he was burned. Mike messed his leg up and had surgery on it last Thursday. However, he developed a blood clot in his right lung after the surgery. His brother-in-law broke his left leg and his knee cap on his right leg. They both will recover 100% but the doctor says they have months of rehab ahead of them! Mike's still in the hospital so I know he would appreciate everyone's thoughts and prayers right now! You can also shoot him an email at [email protected].

Thanks!
Cat
