It sounds as though, after making some progress, Kurt has now taken another bad turn.

Please keep him and Carol in your prayers and thoughts.

Sharing Monkey Dunks' son's facebook post:

"...………………. NEW UPDATE: Apparently last night was not good. The doctor called Mom at 3:30am to let her know they were moving him back to ICU. This was a big surprise as it seemed he was making so much progress. The stroke recovery team was actually very impressed and we were feeling good. Last night he was having difficulty breathing. He attempted to get out of bed and ripped out his catheter before falling. When they got him to ICU they determined that the infection he had prior had moved to his blood. His heart can not fight anymore. We believe his multiple attempts to get up and take off his monitor cables and tubing is him saying "I'm done". He had made it crystal clear that he wanted no part of living on machines, like a vegetable, or with being a bourdon to anyone in order to live (especially my mother). The doctors sat us down in the family room and told us where he was at. He has no more fight. He is on medication that is keeping his blood pressure up and therefore, keeping him alive. They say when he is taken off of it, he has an hour to a day before he passes. We are waiting for Brooke to arrive before the medication is pulled. It is a very sad day for sure but this is what he would have wanted. I love you Dad.""

I find no adequate words, just prayers

It's been tough hearing about Kurt falling ill and the latest I heard from Carol is Kurt is unlikely to beat this battle. Monika and I got to visit with them on President's day weekend for our annual gathering organized by Krislord. Kurt was in form and as he would often say "Life is Good"! He has lived a good life and I've very much enjoyed riding with him, his Humor, Witt, and Beer! We all have an expiry, and maybe a best before date, we just don't know when that might be. A good thing that we don't.

So sad to hear prayers for Kurt, Carol, and family. Met Kurt and Carol at octovrfest many times. What a great couple always a smile. Kurt is a very interesting guy, loved listening to his stories. Hope he fools us all and has more stories to tell

Prayers for the family during this difficult time.

Great couple that I had the honor of meeting and sharing a few rides with. They are an inspiration to live your dreams.

I can head East or West, it doesn't matter as long as it's on 2 wheels.

Update: Monkey Dunk has been moved to a comfort center closer to their home. Carol is able to stay with him & is pleased with the care he's getting. .

Prayers continue
