Out of the Blue

Apologies for the non-update here. In brief, my mom, who has been receiving treatment lately for her second recurrence (third incidence) of breast cancer had what is described as a "massive" stroke last night. We're off to see her in the hospital, but her prognosis has been described as grim.

I just wanted to fill you in, as I'm not sure when I'll be back at this point. Thanks for your understanding, and for any good thoughts or prayers that anyone can muster on the occasion.

Long time reader, first time poster...your Mom is in my prayers, Blue. Just based on reading your site for years, I can tell she did a great job raising her son and must therefore be a truly special person.

Longtime lurker myself also. Having lost a best friend to cancer recently, I can only imagine a fraction of the emotions you are going through right now. My hope and prayers go out to your mom. Hang in there man.

Take care of your Mom and yourself Blue. Like I've said before, the site can wait. We'll all still be here when you decide it's time to come back. I'm sure more than a few of us would be willing to help you keep the site up and alive while you take the time to deal with real life and the things that really matter.

I've been coming to this site 2-3x/day since day 1, in '95? when all it talked about was Quake. I think this is my first post. Seems like good wishes are the least we can do for someone who's worked year round for almost 10 years to bring us the news.

Take care and I hope everything turns out OK.

There's probably nothing I can say that would make you feel better, but I offer my condolences.

Don't worry about updating for a while. Take care of yourself.

It may have taken 223 posts for me to get to work, but
though I am definitely not the first, good wishes, Blue and
Blue's mom.

Currently watching my mother go through the 'grim' times
with her mother and while I won't know this exact pain and
worry until much later in life(with any hope), I can guess
at how hard it is on you and your family. Ganbatte Blue's
Mom!

I love this website and visit it 3 times a day, its strange but I actually feel like it's my online hangout. It's cool to see everyone showing their concern and people actually posting for the first time to express their feelings. I definately want to give you my best wishes and my prayers are with you and your family as well. Blue, may God Bless you and your Mom and may everything turn out for the best.

My mom had a stroke about 2 years ago. I walked in on her laying on the floor talking nonsense and unresponsive. It was pretty scary. Not to dim the lights further, but she has never been the same since. It wasn't bad enough to cause any paralyisis but she isn't the same person anymore. I'm really sorry blue, this is very untimely and quite a shock. A good friend of mine, his mom died in a car wreck not too long ago and well... I know I can't call you a friend blue, however, this was still a shock. If there was anything I could do to make things better, I would. You might not want to hear this, but if it is a really serious stroke like you say. She's probably better off if she dosen't survive it. I hate saying that, but it really is true. My thoughts go out to you, and I'll yell at God for being a dick. Be strong Blue, you and your wife need each other right now, find solace in her. Thats really the only advice I can give.
