Leave of Absence

My apologies to those PMing me with questions; which I am currently unable to answer properly.
I’m currently undertaking a personal medical education; trying to learn about NSCLC cancer (brother in-law), Dilated Cardiomyopathy (grandson), and Neurogenic & Arterial Claudication & atherosclerosis (myself). This is consuming my full intellectual capabilities (& more) for the near future.
I continue to follow some of the interesting CF discussions; but will be unable to participate in anything beyond a superficial manner.
Thanks for understanding.
Hope to return to full participation soon.
Very best regards,
Gord

Well if you had all those deseases you'd be fu#%*ed but as you have only 4 or 5 I think your chances are fine.

As for "superficial discussions" ALL discussions on CF are superficial so we do NOT think we can do without you!!!!!!

Finally: If a doctor tries to stick his finger 'up there' just say (loudly): "Glad you're good looking!" He'll have it out in no time

Gord.
I know you will research the hell out of it all.

But then research the docs.

Docs are like car mechanics. Find a good one and stick.

All the best to you and your loved ones. I read somewhere that God does not throw at you more suffering than you can take.

While you are researching all these, I would suggest that you look into alternative medicine, namely acupuncture and Chinese herbal remedies. It saved my life, when all hope was lost.

If you want I can PM you my Chinese doctor's address.
