After 6 days of diarhea etc and not drinking or eating, I went into some kind of acute gastric distress the night before testerday, with severe abdominal cramps and not being able to move or even sit up.

We had to call the rescue squad and I came to the hospital at 6am yesterday morning. After cat scans, etc, the dr thinks there is a problem somethere in my colon. anyway, all the ivs have helped because i was severly dehydrated and feel a little better today. It looks like another day of clear fluids, so looks like i will be here til sat, anyway.

= As I get older, it just seems I look at things dispassionatly like you deal with whatever cards are dealt to you.chris, i am happy for you that you are going to be okay

btw,

Anyway, just wanted to let my ccb frinds know what is going on, in case my participation is sporadic.

I am going to leave out the gory details but it was much worse that Laura intimated in her post. How does gushing blood grab you? Enjoy your dinner and beer and Slim Jims.

W.W.,

I would be relieved to find out it was something other than Colon Cancer also. Your a lucky man. Your also right about the support she's received in this unfortunate illness. Nobody deserves this type of treatment. Compassion, is what we all need for each other regardless of personal feelings.

Having her join the board to meet new friends is what I would suggest too. Especially, when moving to a new environment. It's nice to have friends. Just to chat with and feel good about oneself. I myself had not found any friends when I moved out here to corn country. Still, the friends I've made here are closer to me than, anyone I've met out here and I've been here 11 yrs.

I for one feel bad about her ordeal. Hospital tests, and waiting for results can be nerve racking. Especially, when something you suspect is not good. The symptoms alone indicate a scarry thought. Aleast, it's treatable and hopefully everything turns out good.

The problem is more deep rooted as I see it. Some may not even have believed her also. Due to past posts and looking for attention. There's also some that have not forgiven her for the flaming she gave Fran.

Laura came in and instantly hooked up with dOwntown and started peltting rocks. Without even knowing the woman. You the husband did the right thing and stood up for your wife and heck broke loose. Then, the peabrain thing comes out.

Now, I for one have forgiven Laura. Although, Fran is one of my dearest friends. Putting my friendship on the line just to put this whole thing behind us. Luckily, my friendship with Fran wasn't broken and Fran was bigger than that.

So you see what it appears to be is Laura likes to be in the limelight. There's nothing wrong with this but it should be more positive. Now, Laura took a lot of abuse in return and admitted openly she shouldn't have been cruel to Fran. She also, expressed remorse. For this I forgave her and was willing to forgive and forget.

I guess what I'm trying to say is. Just let it go unless this really needs to be addressed. I thought her reply was good enough. dOwntown is gone and calmness has returned. The replies to the post mirror your thoughts and everyone can see this. I'm not suggesting you shouldn't stick up for your wife. I'm suggesting your wife seems to be handling herself pretty good.

She does have friends here and she's not a bad woman. I also believe you have more to offer the board with your experience also. With the holidays coming why not just forgive and forget?

Respectfully,

C.C.

Chris,

In spite of your illness, your compassion is what being a good person is all about. Your ability to 'forgive' is an admirable quality too.

As you know waiting for the tests and not knowing and then more tests to come is a pain and is scary.

They kept me in the hospital long enough to do the cat scans and stuff and to come up with a diagnosis. The specialists are still to come. I am freed to return to work as soon as I am symptom free but I do not see that happening any time soon. I may be wrong.

I think ww was upset, in part, because he had never seen anybody this sick and was scared. I had amaebic dysentary in a foreign company a number of years back. I thought that was the sickest or in worst pain a person could be in but I was wrong.

Anyway, Chris, you show yourself to be a kind person and thankyou for the support.

Laura

Well Laura,

I just had a wake up call in my life and realized one thing. What really matters? What really counts in our lives anyway? To me it's letting the people you care about know how you feel. Insults and arguing only lead down a path that has nothing to offer.

Life is too short to put valuable time into something that's not worth the time. The important thing is to be happy. To make the ones that make you happy, know it. I am not going to be that crab ass we all know, either at out job, relative or someone we have to deal with.

I know the people that count in my life and those I won't waste my time on. I figure you proved to me to be worth my time, to let know, I care enough to wish you good health.

The way I see it is, if you want to fight, dislike or hate make it something worth while, like cancer, heart desiese, poverty, take your pick. The things that take away the people we love or the things that cause hardship to the people we care about.

I don't know? Maybe it's the drugs I'm taking or the holidays but I for one am not getting my stomach tied up in nots for something so trivial as the sake for arguement. I just want it all to end. There's enough suffering and pain in this world. Why can't the CCB become the safe haven? I feel happy here. When, it stops, I will be the first to leave.


I wish you luck and hope your ok,

C.C.

Thanks Chris. I do believe when you are faced with a potentially life threatening illness, things take on a diffenent perspective. My friends with cancer have even told me that colors became brighter but I think It is people that become important.

I watched my mother have breast cancer twice and survive. She is still alive today at 78 fighting severe diabetes and severe osteoporosis.

When my father was 74 he had a major surger to repair an anyeuresm. The surgery went fine but he had complications and became critical and what I remember was the people. I slept in the ccu waiting room for two nights and I remember the stream of people coming to support me. In and out they came. Those first two days, until he was out of the woods so to speak I remember the support and the love.

I know that some people become bitter when bad things happen to them. I was so afraid that my daddy was going to die that two nights, but I remember happiness because of the people.

While I am being vulnerable, I wish to admit to something. I am sure that ww would say dont but I must. I am honest to a fault but I told a lie.

When I first came on here, and downtown started flaming me,it hurt but I flamed him back. I did not want him or anybody to know how sensitive I was and how easily hurt I got. Eventually, it seemed like he was playing and I did not take it personally, even though it still hurt a little.

Some of you will not believe me, but I am going to tell the truth anyway. I had shortly, previous to ccb, come from a list which was vindictive in it's flaming. I was one of the ones who stayed quiet most of the time to keep from being flamed. I said I was the 'flame queen' to keep people from hurting me. I flamed people for self protection, an action which I deeply regreted. It was my darkest side and I was very upset with myself for acting in a way that was contrary to the way I usually am.

While it is true that my brother and I 'bantared' as children, even that hurt, but I pretended it did not.

I am extremely sensitive and every flame I get hurts, even if my words are a part in my treatment.

In the middle of all of this sensitivity, I try to be logical. I could see that I had no business telling people opinions who knew more than I did about pool.
Tom Brooklyn and sometimes Rackumup and wally have written me privately in a kind, loving way to tell me when I was getting myself into trouble. Sometimes they suggested that I delete a certain post and I did.

After a period of time, my posts looked stupid to me and I wanted to delete them all. Unfortunately, the way the settings were, I could only go back two weeks.

I never thought I could be married. I thought that I was too easily hurt. I know I have been too open here. It is the way I am, but others have pointed out to me that sometimes it is not a good idea.

Earlier in this thread,all of the seemingly funny stuff made me cry and made ww laugh.

So, whether you believe it or not, each of you can hurt me very easily. It takes very little. I don't think that is your fault because you did not make me this way. Sometimes I have sounded tough when I was not. I do not know why I came here trying to sound tougher than I was. At times I was mean and when this was pointed out, the truth of it hurt.

Even though I would like to have each person here as a friend, I know many here still hate me because of the Fran situation. I feel like those people will never forgive me. Even though I feel that I am at fault for losing those people as friends, it does not stop the hurt.

So whether you believe me or not, whether you think I am being soppy, I know what I have finally told the truth and that that is all that I can do.

I hope each person here can be happy and whatever your dreams, desires or beliefs are that you will reach them.

Laura

So now you expect us to believe that your motto, like the Crown of Scotland, is not Nemo me impune lacessit? So why is it that you are a registered martial artist and a trained weapons and firearms expert? Why are you planning a trip to NY? Why this talk of GI distress?

Your slipping kiddo. Even a field operative with a peabrain can see your setting it up for a showdown with a certain somebody in a bathroom somewhere.
