I don't think this will be my swan song, but jut wanted to let you all
know that I will most likely be off list for awhile.
I have just received a preliminary diagnosis of acute myeloblastic
leukemia (AML). This will be confirmed by bone marrow biopsy tomorrow. If
proven true then I'm off to the hospital on Monday for a 4-5 week
Just wanted you all to know that I have enjoyed the repartee (that's
French for give and take) over the months and that I will miss it when I'm
in the hospital. After Monday, I will report back when I can.

I will miss your reasoned responses. Hope everything goes
well and you are back before you know it.
If you do have to sit in bed or at least sit for awhile, you
might want to consider getting a laptop with a wireless card.
Might be something to keep you busy and your mind off of
This is the kind of news you would never wish to hear. And I don't
wish to hear an experienced, supportive, moderate voice in civil
engineering go quiet.
Still, I can try to console you with the recent memory of a friend
diagnosed with a leukemia, who recovered after months of relatively
little response to treatment.

Wow, Bob... I just looked AML up, and apparently, depending on what
subtype you have, your chances can range quite a bit.
How up to the challenge are you?
Doubly coincidentally, they apparently found a body floating today in
English Bay here in Vancouver, and of course, we've been discussing
health-care issues in the thread, "20 Years". (Michael Moore's film,
'Sicko', is slated for a June 29th. release.)
Looking forward to the details of your report, and maybe even a film-review.
