Hi! Remember me?

Why, Hello there!  Haven’t seen you in a while and it’s just as well that you haven’t seen me.

There’s no amount of Max Faxtor on the planet, trust me.

Way too much has happened in the past 3 weeks and I couldn’t remember the dates if I tried. I do know I am on another big batch of antibiotics as well as anti-fungals now.

There is a fungal infection around the heart and the pneumonia just doesn’t want to leave me.

I am now on oxygen, too. Only 2 litres, but still enough to be annoying and in the way.

A couple of the tests were invasive, so even with the MAC a few feet away, there was no energy to write anything coherent and informative

That’s all I’ve got for a medical update for now.

Although I’ve not been online for the holidays, I’ve thought about many of you, very often. To those who’ve stayed in touch even dropping a note occasionally - a special thanks. Your words and thoughts kept me going when the pain (or painkillers) almost let me down.

Don’t know what’s in the future but without a living space on the ground floor, I won’t have one any time soon.

I don’t have an iPad here, but you folk with FaceTime might me hearing from me via my iPhone. I hope you don’t mind.

I’m stationed in room #224A (don’t know how long) at Beebe Medical Center In Lewes, DE.

I’m drugged a lot so I sleep a lot.  Sorry about that, it’s what keeps me from sitting at the keyboard and writing. 

Suffice to say, I miss you all and think of you often. If, for some reason I can’t get back online again for a while, I want to wish you all a Happy New Year.

Didn’t think I’d get this far!!!

I am amazed.


  1. oh hallelujah! you ARE thought of often, dear one. you don't know how many boyfriends are asking about you, if I have heard from you. I will be pleased to tell them YES, YOU ARE ALIVE; go read his latest posting!

    {{{{{hugs}}}}} to you; and don't worry about the max factor, I love you the way you are!

  2. Cheers! So glad to see your post and wish you recovery, strength, peace and comfort. Yes WE think of you often and are always sending OUR love. You are amazing.

  3. So very happy to hear from you again, C., though our relief can't yet be absolute because of your far-from-wished-for present condition - BUT it's in the right direction so that alone is something for us to be thankful for, though you may well not be up to feeling that precise emotion.
    We'll continue to be thinking about your progress, following what you say when you're able to say it - and, if there isn't a chance to say it before midnight on the year change, here's wishing you a happier 2015 than this last year's was.
    I'll be raising a glass of port to your health at that time, if not before.
    Most sincerely, all the very best to you - which I send wrapped in loads of love.
    (Blackso and Noodles ask to be mentioned in this message - so cugs and huddles from them too.).

  4. So relieved to hear from you again. Thanks for taking the effort to post and keep all your friends apprised of your situation. I wish there was more we could do for you. What we can do is let you know that you're in our thoughts and have our wishes for your comfort and rest. Your valiant battle is an inspiration to all of us. You are loved by many.

  5. Always glad to hear from you, buddy! You continue to amaze and inspire us.
