Our Grandaughter was diagnosed with Leukemia
~ 1 year ago, (age 2 1/2) and it's now in remission. Aside
from the treatment (chemo) she was also a hell of a trooper,
amazing how much internal fortitude humans muster when
With a good support network, mainly parents, she had
a good positive attitude. The chemo leads to mood-swings,
but all-in-all she managed to bridge those fairly well,
considering she really couldn't understand why she had
to quit day care to go to a hospital.
After awhile when the nurse came in she'd just stick out
her arm while playing, singing and yaborating.
You finally have an excuse to spoil yourself rotten!
Hey Bob, I empathize with your situation, but I'm afraid that we can't
let you off that easy. None of this past tense "enjoyed" stuff.
You've added a lot around here and there's no flipping way you're
cutting out on us. There's work to be done and fun to be had.
So, take care of the doctor crap, do what you gotta do, and get your
ass back here!
Taking a laptop to the hospital is an excellent idea. You'll be able
to keep up with your newsgroups to make sure we don't muck things up,
keep us posted, and watch movies that you want to see instead of the
five channels they show in hospitals. If you want, I can send you
this disk I...errr....found, titled Tender Teenage Nurses. If that
doesn't get you up and about, nothing will! ;)
Sorry to hear your news...You gave good info stuff here and will be
missed... I wish you the best on your health issues...I had a Aunt on my
wife's side that just died...But at 88..she had leukemia like 40
years...So I'm saying take heart and know you are going to be ok...just
do what your doing...take action, get your facts and do the
Hope to see you back here soon kid...
It is too bad that the article didn't tell about his engineering experience
when he left the Blue Moon Tavern business.
He had a long going engineering practice in Poulsbo WA and a helper in the
'Seattle Engineering Association of Washington"
Unfortunately for everyone who ran across him, no. Kris posted the
obit above. I feel a real sense of loss and I never met the guy. I
can only imagine what a stellar man he was in real life and the loss
of those who knew him well.
No, I didn't post it, I replied to someone else's having posted it. But I
seem to recall it also being mentioned a few weeks ago.
His posts were always those of a Gentleman, and a Man (caps fully
intentional). I never spoke with him directly, but even in someone's
writing, their qualities show through, and I always enjoyed his writings.
