leave of absence from the board

I have been advised by my wife (she is a scary old woman) and my insurance company medical advisor to take a leave of absence from the board. For the last week I have been popping percocet just so I could get some sleep. It’s just pure nerves. The percocet is nothing but “dry booze” for me. The medical advisor said they see this a lot with heart attack patents. It hits them when they start feeling better. It is when the shock of what they have been thru hits them. Yeah, cancer has been a wild ride for me.

Love you all. You all have done much for me in my journey. I will be back in a few months cause I am sure as hell not going to croak from this crap. Hell, someone needs to keep screaming Attitude Attitude Attitude to all the newbies!!!

I understand. It breaks my heart to see all the young ones joining the board and the bad news we have been reading about lately. Tell that "scary old woman" that it is her "duty as a wife" to keep you totally relaxed and don't forget to post your black eye after you say it!

Hugs - Tina

Sorry to see that you'll be off of the board for a while. I'll scream Attitude at some newbies for ya while you're gone.

Take care my friend

"Old farts don't die, they just stink up another room".

You'll be lurking, just like I did..... Then the urge will overpower
you, and all your self-discipline will dissipate like the smell of
deer pee on a windy winter day.

Yeah, you'll be back.

Be well,

I understand your wife's concern (my husband has heart issues). However I will miss you, and I hope you'll be back soon.

You're like General Patton imploring the troops to get out there and kill as many bastards as possible, and when you're finished killing those bastards, go find some other bastards to kill. And not telling us to be courageous, but reminding us that we already are.

Patton said, "I don't measure a man's success by how high he climbs but how high he bounces when he hits bottom." For us on the board, sometimes we hit bottom. Sometimes we get hit in the bottom. But we always bounce.

Thanks for all your humor and encouragement.

Take care - Roger

You'll be missed -- but I understand. Have a good rest -- recharge the batteries.
