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.

Two years ago my brother had a total kidney failure. Doctors were talking about a possible transplant. Yet he recovered and two weeks later his kindey function returned to normal. Talk about an amazing recovery.

I wish your mother the same kind of recovery, and more.

We're with you, Blue.

It's sort of sad that it generally takes tradgedy to bring out the best in people, but it's nice to see the concern for Blue from all around.

It reminds me of the end scene in Starman with Jeff Bridges when he's talking to Charles Martin Smith about humanity.

"We are interested in your species. You are a strange species not like any other. And you would be surprised how many there are...intelligent but savage. Shall I tell you what I find beautiful about you? You are at your very best when things are worst."


Cthulu loves you. On a bun. With catsup.

As with the rest here, my heart goes out to you and your family. I sincerely hope for the best, and if that is not meant to be, I hope you take comfort in the show of support from myself and the community.

And may this thread be the longest blues thread ever, since it means so much more than some silly flamewar.

I'm really sorry to hear that, Blue. My father had a very mild stroke earlier this year and that was traumatic enough, so I can't imagine how difficult this would be for you and your family. Take as long as you need...
