Uh oh... now what?

"Defend World Championship Title"? Nothing on the team page indicates he is back in. Of course I don't know him or how his injury is progressing.

Mike is a fairly active guy on facebook and interacts with regular peeps. I scanned his page and found this... it is a comment he posted on March 21st in reference to someone else's question about a race called the Fort Clinch 100.
"No fracture. The tendon I injured is still healing. I have the best Docs! I'm day to day. My focus is to make sure I'm healthy for WS 100 and Spartahlon. I will decide to run closer to the race date. I'm pretty sure I won't spend all the money to go to the world championships in May. I'd over do it in that atmosphere and blow the rest of the year! I'm feeling good and I have had several 15 mile plus runs but there are days the tendon "talks" to me."
March 21st is a long time ago. The 'raise funds for Mike' thing seems to be making the rounds today. "Pretty sure". Well, I guess that doesn't say much at all... but it is something he himself said.
I am dumber than a stick about this and many other things -- is there a provision similar
to the USATF/IAAF World Championships where the reigning champion's entry is waived?
The link I posted was put on the ultralist this morning by Richard Schick. I only posted
to here as an information point and know nothing more.
Knowing a tiny bit more... believing everything on the Internet is true, correct, and current:
