Ripley,
I am so sorry to read this.
I have had my own scary health problems recently, but I expect to be OK.
I truly wish for the same for you. My thoughts are with you.

You and I have had some funny exchanges and you have a great sense of humor: let that guide you, let your doctors do their job, and try (hard as it is) to not let stress get to you.

I offer you my very best wishes, my friend.

cheers.

Thanks guys.

I'll try and do as much as I can to assist the medical side of things. My big hope is that the condition is not too advanced, although experts say that by the time symptoms become noticeable you've already lost 75-80% of the blood vessels in the pulmonary artery/lungs.

Man, that sucks. Does that mean that you've gotta quit smoking and eating fish 'n chips with extra mayo, vinegar & salt?

But like Robin so adeptly said, if you ever, for even one moment, feel like quitting, he'll kill you. I promise that I will kill you too. And that is not a piece of Torte, being killed twice, let me tell you.

I heard that being killed twice happened to one guy, and he was quite pissed about... :roll:

Extra mayo? Since when has England been part of Belgium or France? :dunno: Chips should not be sullied with any other condiments barring salt and vinegar! :maul:

Someone took the bait, eh? :grin: Yet, I agree, well not geographically, but I guess that it was in Halifax, where I got F 'n C served with inadeptly tartar sauce named, eh, mayo :puke:

PS: Those low-lifes who serve non-brewed condiment as accompaniments, should be left out and placed in the stocks. :shock:

:stop:

Firstly, you do realise that in our glorious history we've gone to war over less inflamatory comments and that doesn't include some of the things that resulted in people being sent to the colonies! (it's even worse than suggesting that we bolt gritstone crags!!!) :hammer:

And wtf were you doing in Halifax? :roll:

As for the tummy tuck, just let those doctors do one thing at a time :wink:

I'm just a car ride away if you do need anything.


Im with LJ here... As for the Car ride... I guess it's a bit long...

Sad to hear about the diagnosis, but happy too see that you are still positive. Chin up dude, and keep that mood as high as the hills you climb.. (God, that sounded cheesy, but you know what I mean!)

"Our" Tony is hanging up his boots in the spring so he can go and relax on the golf course(or firing range :shock: ) with GBjr and we've got a Scottish 'tough guy' reputedly taking over who reckons he'll play tough with the US so the protection racket won't last long. Think we'd better start making friends with another superpower :lol:

All the best ripley, that is very hard news to accept, but stay positive and live life to the fullest. Times like these really teach one to appreciate all they've got.
