Ken,
I'm truly sorry to learn what you're going through. I'm a grumpy old sod already and your kind of trouble would certainly push me beyond the pale.
At least you're in a place where you can rely on expert skills and post-operative care. Like everyone else here, I very much hope that the outcome will improve your situation.

Also, after it became public that several people had sent me cards, I got a few requests to put up some pics of the cards... The truth is that I was not able to do that. If I am better after my surgery and am able to handle more activities, I will try to get some pic pics up ASAP. Until then, don't look for them.

Ken, don't worry about it! Concentrate on getting better so that we can all enjoy your company here - that would be a far greater thing for we dc regulars that miss you!

Ken, do what you have to do to regain your health. We're not going anywhere and we won't forget you. If you get well, I will swear to Buddha never to eat another radish. Never mind that I've never eaten a radish in my life; what's important is how far I'm willing to sacrifice on your behalf. In fact, I'll go on a hunger strike where I eat nothing but carbohydrates and sugar — usually bread followed by slamming it with chocolate milk. I'll even throw in some cake, maybe some ice cream. I'm pulling for you, man!

Hi everyone.

I just wanted to let you know that the surgery has been scheduled for Sept 21. The doctor's office called me today, late this afternoon, to let me know. No one except Mouser should feel like they have to send me any software to help me feel better. Seriously, I really appreciate the support and assistance from everyone.

Take care, Ken

That's great news, Ken. A fixed date and now you can organize your life and prepare for it (the surgery) and life afterward.

Hmmm, a most intriguing question! Wishlist of what Wordzilla? If you're talking about software, App is going to get me some freeware. Maybe you and she could go in on it together and split the cost.

Ok, I have it. I have considered VoIP for a while. You can figure out what is the best freeware for it and get that for me. Given my ISP, I know it will have to have encryption, since they want to provide this service themselves. Ok Wordy, have at it!

My take on Wordy's question was that he was meaning something like Amazon's wish-list...

Dear Ken,

that's great news. Thanks so much for keeping us up to date.

Now we all eagerly wait for the 21st Sept. 2007 and the time after that date.

And dont forget: Keep your head up high in the air, even if your neck is dirty  ;D

Your buddy

Ah, Ok, Thanks Darwin. Then the answer is "No".

I thought Ken would appreciate the academic dark humour -- he knows how much I care about him  :-*

Note that I refrained from inserting "no pun intended" after "ouch"? That took restraint... :P

God, did that ever make me laugh. :beerchug: Chapeau Mouser!



Now, while that would have been enough for most people to communicate their feelings,
Mouser was not quite finished cutting off my balls. He finishes up shortly thereafter
however in his response to App's funny statement when he tells her to:

Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha

P.S.: Ken is probably still laughing his ass off over this entire part of the thread ;D

Hey Ken, nice to hear the surgery has been scheduled!

I'm not religious so I won't pray for you, but I'll keep my fingers crossed! :up:
