Our friend Bob
« on: September 25, 2011, 02:51:42 PM »
Time to get this off my chest.  
Our friend Bob has been diagnosed with anal cancer.  He has been taken off the kidney donor list.  He is on chemotherapy for the cancer.  (I heard that if he still needs a kidney in 5 years he will be put back on the donor list.)  In the meantime he is on dialysis and on chemo.  His new liver seems to be ok.
Needless to say we are all very disappointed in this turn of events.  
I just felt I had to let you(all) know.
It makes me so sad.

Hey Joel,

Sorry for the delay in posting. I am having ISP issues.

I am sorry to hear about Bob. I will be keeping him in my thoughts and sending as much supportive energy as I can.

HUGS,

Thanks for your responses guys.
Bob, if nothing, is a fighter.  He looked pretty good last time I saw him.
