    Hey gang !

    I've glanced briefly a time or two, when time allowed, and noted a few requests for me to jump in and offer my .02 cents. Just so you know, I didn't garner the Rising star award and run off to hide. I've been kind of busy this past week or so. My mother was recently diagnosed with leukemia. She's been in & out of the hospital quite a bit, and this last week she's been in ICU after a very severe reaction to the chemo therapy. So needless to say, I've been at the hospital nearly 24/7. As you know, I tend towards the loquatious, and haven't felt like I have had the time to sit and prepare concise, well-thought out responses. As of last night, my mother was moved back out of ICU and into the Oncology ward, so things are moving on the right track. I should be back, pesterin' the livin' crud outta everyone shortly. 'cides...I brought in the Sentinal to antagonize everyone in my absentia. I'm sure he's doin' just fine and stirrin' up the proverbial pot and rilin' everyone up.

    Just didn't want'cha ta think I'd vamoosed with nary a word.

    Family always comes first.
    Quality outweighs quantity every time.

    Take care of family first, bud. We're with ya on this. Hope it all works out.

    Washington State, and particularly the part of the state I'm in, is bad for cancer and auto-immune diseases. So I've seen this a lot. It's not as bad as it was even a few years ago, but still nothing I like seeing any one go through. So I do empathathise with your situation.

    Wow! Family is #1 obviously, my thoughts are with you and your mother during this difficult time.

    You ARE missed, but I would be concerned if you were posting alot with this going on

    Take care and keep in touch Sifu-

    The above is just my opinion.

    Take care of family, you will be missed while you’re gone, but we totally understand the absence.

    I wish her the best and will keep her in my thoughts. Do what you gotta do. We'll be here when you get back.
