[Chat] It's been pretty quiet here, everybody ok?

I've been thinking, gee, really quiet in Helix these days. That could be good or bad, I don't know.

I am doing ok, though the other day I had what might have been a mild stroke, gonna check with doctor. I'm still working and managing ok. My Alain is managing ok. My nephew Colin just past his periodical visit at St. Judes with good results.

Hope everyone else is ok!

Oh yeah, and by the way, a star is born:

Make sure you get checked out soon, sooner the better! Symptoms like those should not be put off. Trust me on that, I know from experience.
Good news on Alain and Colin! The folks around here must be in winter hibernation. Good to see squirt See Profile peeked out.

Without going into a great amount of detail,things here at home havent been terrific of late as Mrs icky has had some health issues and surgeries. Nothing life threatening but serious enough to take my time and attention away from Helix temporarily. Things are looking better for now thankfully. Wont be long now before Im back being my usual annoying self,harassing you all endlessly as is my usual practice!

Guys, I got a somewhat cryptic text from my brother about Colin. He is in the ER, I'll update when I know more. He's been doing so well, so incredibly well, I hope this isn't a relapse, especially after the results just a couple days ago!

Icky, I've go her on my list!

Doin' pretty good here.............all things considered.

HEY!
I think I have a really GOOD idea!

How 'bout we all get well/stay well, (our loved ones included) during 2013?

Get a flu shot, and don't have any motor-scooter, (or any other) accidents, for a year!!

Deal?

Wanna pop in here and mention that Colin is doing better now. He had had a surgery and got pretty sick right after, but he's going home right now as I write this. He's the toughest hombre on the planet!

You know, Squirt, he really is, if you met him, you'd be really taken by his energy and spirit. Here *I*, grappling with my issues while *he* grapples with his, he's just a kid, but a better man than me!

I was telling a coworker about him today, and the coworker told me that only a year and a half ago, he had lost his wife to pancreatic cancer. I was amazed, because the fellow didn't tear up or anything when talking about it.

One day, cancer won't plague those that can afford treatment as it does today, and the kids of that era will marvel at how so many generations before them suffered such a great toll. I hope that malaria and dengue also disappear from people's worries by then.

It's something that has no definition! After passing out I was asked if I "was ok now". I said yes, but we know I was stretching the meaning of the word.
