Some of you may not have heard about this, but popular voice actor Greg Ayres fell ill during Ikkicon last week and was hospitalized. I've just been sent a statement from him for you fans:


I know there has been much speculation and inquiry as to my health, and the events surrounding my hospitalization last weekend during IkkiCon in Austin, Texas.


I was hospitalized after experiencing chest pains and on Saturday I suffered a mild heart attack. Thankfully, due to the hard work of the hospital staff and the medical treatment I received prior, the damage to my heart was so much less than it could have been.


While I consider myself very blessed and lucky in light of all of this, there are many people that I feel the need to thank for my care over the last few days.


I am forever grateful to Dr. Paul Roach, Dr. Aaron Maxwell, Dr. Joseph Elizondo, Dr. Mahmuda Begum, Dr. Charles Anderson, and the entire cardiology Staff at University Medical Center Brackenridge for the best medical care I could have possibly asked for.


I can never thank Paul, Cindy-Lou, Karen, India, Kasee, Sarah, and the nursing and ER Staff of University Medical Center Brackenridge enough for the quality “day in - day out” care given to me, as well as the smiles, and words of encouragement they constantly sent my way.


My family, extended “family”, and friends who never left my side, did an amazing job at allowing me the ability to focus on my recovery.


Finally, I have to thank the staff of IkkiCon for having the management and resources to deal with a medical emergency of this nature.


Fortunately, I have been able to return home to Houston to continue my rest and recovery prescribed by all of the folks above.


Sincerely,


Greg Ayres


If you guys want to send in any get-well cards or anything along those lines, let me know and I'll see what I can set up. Feel better, Greg!
