On October 6, Gears of War composer Kevin Riepl tweeted that he thought someone "roofied" him while out drinking. He'd blacked out. "Somethings effed up," he added. "Like literally. Something knocked me out." Within days, Riepl was on live support.
By the following day, Riepl was in the hospital from where he uploaded this photo. The game composer tweeted that all his tests came back normal, but was having an MRI to check if there were any issues with his heart.
On October 10, Riepl's wife Tracy tweeted (via his account) that he was on life support and needed blood transfusions. As of several hours ago, Tracy tweeted that her husband was "still sedated while on life support but was more responsive to family in the room". Riepl has young children.
"Lastly, I wanted to say thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your positive vibes, thoughts and prayers," Tracy added.
Riepl is scheduled to go into surgery tomorrow night. Here's hoping it is a success.
