Wednesday April 26th update:   From Denise Wattles

Tony Picchioldi has been in St. Jude's hospital for over 2 weeks with Crohn's Disease (a disease of the colon).
He has lost about 40 lbs. and doesn't know what each new day will bring. His mom told me he may have to have his colon removed if his condition worsens. At this time the prognosis isn't great but I know the support of his friends will greatly improve his spirit. If you have a minute today please give him a call. His phone number at the hospital is
(314)747-3232. It rings in his room and he answers. Please keep him in your prayers.

Wed. 7:09AM:  From Dave Devoto

I just talked to Tony in the hospital at 314 747-3232.  He greatly appreciated the call and said he is so grateful for the calls and cards from pullers.  Whether you know Tony or not give him a call or send him a card!  Tony's a great guy.  He told me he lost 40 pounds so now he will be in Cobra Rhodes weight division so Cobra had better look out.  Obviously he also has a great sense of humor.
