Put him in your Prayers

6 posts in this topic

Vikings starting defensive end, Kenechi Udeze, is fighting leukemia.

Udeze’s doctors are still trying to determine what grade of leukemia he is dealing with.

5 EYEWITNESS NEWS was the first to report the diagnosis, which has hit his Vikings teammates hard. He is still undergoing tests and it could be several weeks before the severity of the cancer is known.

Udeze is a former No. 1 draft pick out of southern California. Last year he played in all 16 games with 53 tackles – 33 of them were solo grabs.

Leukemia is a cancer of the blood that starts in the bone marrow.

Udeze's agent, Ethan Lock, would not comment on the diagnosis.

That's really some sad news. My dad passed away at the age of 50 from Leukemia and I learned the hard way it is a very tough illness to deal with. There are, of course, different "kinds" of Leukemia so hopefully his will be one that is easily treated. He will be in my prayers as well.

Wow, I had heard something with a Vikes player. That's horrible, don't like to hear about cancer in anyone. At least he's in MN and has great med care. Here's to hoping he comes through great.

      What a novel concept!  Talking fishing on a fishing forum to increase interest and activity.  You may be right, it could work!

      So let me see if I understand this? You guys on the last page or so are going to "Lets Save This Forum" by high jacking the thread and talking fishing now!     Dam that could just work? Carry-on!   Good Luck.

      I have been looking at the gages this morning and the L.F. still appears to be either frozen or have an ice jam at the most downstream gage in Little Fork. The discharge is not working but the water level has risen 3' since Sunday. The next upstream gage however is flowing good and has risen from 1,200cfs to 5,000+cfs since Sunday and has risen 8' in the same period. The Big Fork doesn't have cfs data so I am thinking its frozen but the height has risen 2.5' since Sunday. I would think with that flow and the warm weather it's only a matter of days until they both go.   Other trips like the Black River and Rapid River are all on the rise both cfs and height.   Also, I took a look at the Rainy at Manitou Rapids and it has risen about 2' and has gone from 14,000 cfs to 17,500 cfs since Sunday.

       I'm heading up Friday. Going out of spring steele. I have a delivery route that took me up there today.  Took lunch at the warroad access. They got it closed with yellow tape.  If anyone heads up earlier an update would be great.  I'm planning on an atv but will walk if I have to.  Thanks.  Good luck and tight lines!!!
