    Great news for all. And this has even came to a suprise with me and the rest of the staff.

    I WILL START WITH A WHOLE EXPLAINATION

    Well as you all well know we love to stay anonymous even to close friends online, we have had a tough time tracking information on Oldenstylehats and this will explain the part on osh's email explaining a friends mother got scared. There was numerous calls made to track down which hospital Oldenstylehats was in but we got very close.
    The only contact was the one email oldenstylehats made to us about the insurance probably not paying him out because of the small thing he never disclosed to the insurance company at the time.

    Oldenstylehats was in a car accident for those that never knew and walked away from the scene but later collapsed with a pierced kidney, after surgery he ended up with an infection and pnemonia and probably a lot more things that all add up to a nasty time in hospital with zero contact with us apart from the one email as you can see from the previous threads we where mega worried with his email as he has been such a great helping hand to everyone.

    For those that donated its mega wonderful he still does not know anything about that yet..... and personally im not sure how he will react to those who have been so kind to a fellow blackhat brother. But it would totally blow me away if it was me.
    As you all well know i was in hospital not long ago and my only contact was Pofecker to update everyone. Its quite mind-blowing to come back online and read so many wonderful caring comments and things people do to make you feel like someone cares about you.

    Anyways exactly 17 minutes ago (according to gmail) me, wiredmom and tropheaum recieved an email from Oldenstylehats.

    Appologies OSH when you read this it is copied entirely as was.

    So it looks like everything is going to be good and he has recieved news that they are going to pay part of his bill for the medical attention he recieved.

    Again he has said that he has to take it easy for a few weeks so remember guys he aint going to be back online straight away doing crazy stuff.

    But he will be out hopefully tonight or tomorrow if all goes well with the tests he is on about in the emails.

    The donations im not sure how he will take it, but its been a real shock even to me that you guys went as far as actually donating as much as you did, im really shocked that so many of you came together for that and i myself im shocked to see you guys feel concerned about a fellow blackhatworld member and staff member.
    None of us get paid for Blackhatworld and a lot of us put a lot of time into the place if not publicly, behind the scenes deleting, approving and a lot of coding, security. Oldenstylehats has been a major part of it and will remain a part of blackhatworld always, WELL when he gets a lot of much needed rest.

    He will take weeks, months and will never fully be able to do a lot of things but its great that I and the rest of the staff have recieved word.
    I didnt think it would be so soon, even though we scared some people tracking him down lol.

    Id still like to say he wont be around for a bit but im sure he will have his own words when he has some energy and I hope everyone feels proud to be part of this family.

    Individually i thank you all for caring, donating, giving words of wisdom, and praying, for those of you who prayed it has worked.

    I dont know much all else to say for once words stump me.

    But on Behalf of Blackhatworld
    THANK YOU

    (p.s Again Oldenstylehats does not know of the donations so dont be suprised if you all get refunded, a new tool, or who knows what)

    (p.p.s Our staff donations he can use and take much needed time off as he does too much in my personal opinion its a pleasure as he has done so much for us)


    And on a minor note there will be some obvious people here that will think this is some way of quick cash for us. Well I think if we wanted to rip you guys off we would have a lot better and bigger ideas than this, there is always skeptics in any situation, but we at blackhatworld work daily reviewing sellers to stop scams here, if we did not care so much we wouldnt bother. We did have some nasty comments about this on the last thread, anyone who thinks this way is in the wrong forum our doesnt understand the BHW's idea of a community, we are here to help anyone, those in need, and those who are starting out as much as possible.

    I hope that covers everything and I think i will be staying up late tonight hoping for more contact on oldenstylehats getting home.

    That is brilliant news, it's good to hear he is doing a lot better and it is good to hear the insurance are going to help out with some of the bills, thanks for letting us know, and as you said I am just as shocked as you to how many people banded together to help him out, so thanks to all of you too. Lets hope he just rests up now and doesn't try to hard to fast.

    Let us know what the total benefit turned out to be, out of curiosity. I think it topped 100k, but something tells me only 10k...

    Isn't that great? And if insurance is paying only a chunk - then maybe the donations have covered the balance? And he wont have to pay a thing?
    What a beautiful gift of appreciation from BHW.

    it'll cost @ 5k w/out complications for only 24 hours recovery in the hospital...no c-section.....

    no medical insurance here in az covers maternity...some used to a few years ago, but you had to wait a year after signing up w/insurance to get pregnant....

And above all, we are happy that we could what we did; not for an individual but our family. Just hope we keep sharing this bond always. love ya, take care.
