Robman2 Posted December 29, 2004 Share Posted December 29, 2004 Doyle Dykes, recently had a fairly complex surgery to remove a non malignant tumor from his inner right ear. It could have caused a stroke and the surgery complications are balance issues (Les Paul has both forward and side to side balance issues, he told me he just closes his eyes if it happens on stage), loss of hearing and paralyization of facial muscles... Of course he had some trepidation as expected before going under, and celebrated Christmas with his family a week early because of the schedule. He's a private guy, but did suggest that for those who have a faith or subscribe to prayer etc it would be OK to let them know because "It couldn't hurt". Greg Laurie, the Harvest pastor, Les Paul and sons, Dave Pomeroy and many others have stepped back and sort of waited for some word. Doyle's daughter let me know that "He's doing well. Recovery is difficult at times... but he's physically doing very well." So for those who care, Doyle's doing OK. Prayers and good thoughts can't hurt, on that Doyle and I are in agreement...
