Thanks Estone, hopefully I can avoid a transplant for a while. Unless Miguel Indurain offers me one of his :lol:

I've also just looked at the site for the unit who I'll be treated by and..............erm..................I don't think I'll be chatting any of the nurses up :lol:

Yeah, I know I'm a little late chiming in, but it always takes me a while to adjust to and tolerate the stench when Ripley's in the room. And with how great things have been goin', it took me just a while longer to muster the cojones to withstand his fetid bouquet.....anyway......

Ripley, if you even think of givin' up, I'll kill you. Honest.

Hey Ripley,

Just happened accross this thread while having a quick look around. I'm so sorry to hear this news and am sending a heap of well wishes and all the courage i can muster for you. Keep your loved ones close cos they're the real strength when you need them and stay as positive as you can.

If you do get the green light to fly out of that bloody freezing place for 5 mins, Perth is warming up nicely and would be great for some R&R!!

I wish you a full and speedy recovery and my thoughts are with you.

He Ripley, I noticed already that, It has been quite here for a while.
But good to see you again on board. What I must say you always got a sence of humour in your post which I like.
Ripley451 wrote::lol:

I personally think you are holding the world record for using that smiley.

In the topic I can't understand due my first language is dutch if you got already a donor or not. Anyway I hope you can find on...
I wish you a good health for 2007! (and ofcourse longer)

Very sorry to hear this news.

I've only been on this forum since New Years Eve, but you were one of the members who welcomed me. For that i'm thankful.

Hopefully, you'll be able to get through this and prove your doctors wrong.

I'm only down the road (in Daventry), so if you need anything.

Firstly.........the smell.............well everyone comments on how its only noticed when Alienator enters a room. The theory being that he's trying to find high-end bike parts and lets off a stink-bomb to try and get everyone out whilst he looks around :roll: Secondly, threatening to kill me....there'll be a long line of ambulance staff waiting to do the same if I don't call 999 when I get chest pain, so you'll have to wait almost as long sa you do for parts from that 2 bit cycle shop you insist on using :P

As for having a donor.............as I'm not on the list just yet, it may look a little odd turning up at a hospital with a pair of lungs and a heart, saying "can you pop these into my chest", difficult questions might be asked of me and I could end up in prison :dunno:

I'm hoping the advances in drug regimes will mean that a transplant is sometime off. I'll know more once I've been to see the team, and the blood pressure within my heart has been measured, which will indicate how severe things are. This should be in the next couple of weeks. Interestingly........Sildenifil is one of the meds I could end up on though :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

Yup. That's why he's always been the favorite boy in the trailer park: all the other boys, there, are just so amazed that he takes it so well, every single time, no matter how long he has to pull the train..... :shock: :grin:

That is so unfair and so unnecessary. Everyone knows, that Robin is the prime example of smelling heavily AXE Musk, without any effect to attract women. By stink-bomb if you mean AXE Musk, mio apologio.

Can't you just say I found them lying in a bin near the meat market?
Would it help, if you'd bring Ur own pop rivet gun? :think:

You're not on the guest list? That's so unfair. Ok, something's gotta be done. Couldn't you just chat up exit-mall people and ask for a donation? If you'd show some mighty Sheffield steel, and say it could be done instantly, in the mall's parking lot, you might strike with luck, people are so easy to over-talk to stupid things. If you don't believe me, what say to you three words: Reality TV.
Anyway, if exit-mall-polling does not result in any donors, it would be in itself enough funny to justify effort.

Ahem, morphine and Sildenafil. Could be the recipe from heaven. To avoid the morning-after embarrassment, you should clearly state that you're not accepting any horse-faced nurses around, no pets what-so-ever around you, and male personnel to duct tape their derrières, just in case things getting on the wild side of dosing. :roll:
