“Hey folks! Finally! This an update that’s totally loooong overdue, people,.. I apologize for the tardiness but I just started an entirely NEW beginning of an existence previously destined to be cut short by the ravages of a hard life lived..

I’m back mother fuckers..!! I feel pretty amazing, although I have a very long way to go as far as being one thousand percent fully healed, but my doctors are completely stoked at my progress so far. This miracle of the modern medical process has literally bought me a second chance at living!

Now on to the real stars of the show: YOU! My family, friends & fans; you truly stole my heart and made me aware that LOVE really does exist in this current climate of hatred because of someone’s skin color, beliefs or personal identity, you people came to the rescue like nobody’s business & we love you! To be honest,…we still need you!

Of major ultra special note is the New Orleans #IXLivesIXLives Mike IX benefit gigs.

I was unable to attend any of the shows because of doctors orders, but word is that the entire weekend was the ultimate example of mass friendship, hope & care for one another in a time of need. Many many thanks to EVERYBODY involved, me & my beautiful rock star of a wife Michelle thank you from the bottoms of our filthy hearts! We were & still are, over-freaking-whelmed at the outpouring of support from all the wonderful humans out in this world, you maniacs have completely outdone yourselves.

I mean obviously there is NO way to list you all individually so let’s just say “You know who you are” And as scatterbrained as I am, I have not forgotten to thank everyone at the Obsessed benefit in MD and the benefit in L.A…

Ok I’ll wrap this up by stating that the battle rages on at the front lines & we’re counting on everyone to keep spreading the word about this You Caring site due to the sad fact that we are forever in debt & in need of help & donations for the aftermath.

To quote an oft-repeated cliche; “Not out of the woods yet”, we are still in dire need of payments on prescription medicines, cardiac rehab, physical therapy, transportation, doctors visits, lab work & plain ol’ past due hospital bills. You are all Southern Nihilism Front soljas. We live to fight another day & to damage more minds and corrupt the bastard system we didn’t choose… EYEHATEGOD will return to the stage in 2017 to incite the class war..!

In other news, Michelle Maher-Williams has offered another update on Mike IX Williams’ condition:

“Hi everyone! I just wanted to update you on Michael‘s condition. A few weeks ago, they discovered the reason that he kept bleeding internally was due to a bleeding ulcer combined with a very low clotting factor. He underwent endoscopic surgery where they put 3 clips on the ulcer to stop the bleeding. We were informed that it’s in a very fragile area prone to bleed again.

Which, of course, it did. Several times. Eventually, they went in and cauterized the ulcer, hoping to put an end to the bleeding. They also worked on raising his clotting factors with medications to help do so. During this time, the results of Mike‘s stress test came back positive for heart damage. His liver failure has taken a toll on his heart and he needed to undergo a procedure to repair it.

He was told that he would have to be put on blood thinners and, when combined with his already low clotting ability, there was a very high risk that he could bleed out and die on the table. If he didn’t have the procedure, he’d be removed from the transplant list. There was no other choice. He had to do it.

Thankfully, there were no complications, and Michael pulled through. He has to remain on blood thinners until December 8th. Once they are out of his system, it’s transplant time!

Thanks so much to all of you for helping him get this far. I dread to think where he would be without it. His deductible is paid for, as is a portion of his past due hospital bills. But we still need to cover the actual surgery, as well as this current monster of a hospital stay and his aftercare, which involves a ton of expenses. Please continue to send positive thoughts, donate and share, share, share!

Much love and gratitude,
Michelle Maher-Williams”
