Contacted Buckwirth/Blake's sister this morning and heard back from her this afternoon. She--a very nice woman--said Blake was was very weak and in hospice, and was off all media. However, I just received a second message from her and here it is:

"I just spoke with him and he was very weak, I told him I spoke with you and he said that you may pass this information along. Again, I am hoping that he will be able to get on the internet one more time before he is too weak. Thanks Tori to you and all the folks that have been Blake's friends over the last 2 years, I know that all of you have meant a great deal to him. It has kept him going this long, and we are thankful for that!"

When he didn't post for a while I didn't know what to think. Blake has been a very, very good friend to me in my journey with George.

Hang in there buddy, I miss you. Post if you can.

Hugs - Tina

Thanks, Tori for the information and the post.

This sort of stunned me actually. I just got in and logged on and wham right in the face. I know it has been rough for him for awhile...at one point, I was going to tell him that I suspected he was not telling us "everything. But, I held back, because I saw a couple of posts he did that were well written and took my eye off the ball and thought things had stabilized.

When we didn't see him on some recent posts (the kind he likes), several of us had "I Wonder" thoughts. Dadgum it!!!! This is upsetting.

Blake - we're all with you, man...we look forward to hearing from you when you can. You just rest and gather your strength - the waiting room here will be full when you get back:)

"Say it ain't so, Joe."

Just say it ain't so:(

Thinking of you and your family during this time, brother - you've always been cool to me and treated me kindly...it took me awhile to figure you out and "get you." Once I did, I could see the real you - and you're a good dude - you've been a big help to many here and I just wanted to say thank you for that.

And thank you to your sister for passing along this information to Tori - when one of us hurts - the entire community feels it. "And we feel you."

Thank you for reaching out to Blake's sister and giving us an update, even though it is not the news we were hoping for.

Dear Blake,

If wishes and hopes could bring a cure, you would be on top of the world, as we all are sending all we can your way.

Hugs in bunches,

Thanks Tommycat. I have been wondering about him for awhile, not like him to not show up here. He has been through so much the last few months. Dang anyway. I'm tired of this kind of news. Blake, hope you're resting comfortably. I'm thinking of you.

Oh,me. I hate to read this. Blake, I hope you're able to either read the posts or have them read to you, so you will know that you have meant a lot to us here.

Blake, if you are reading this, I saw a quote this morning that resonated with this whole experience. It's from Mark Twain:
"The two most important days in your life are the day you are born, and the day you find out why."
God bless you Blake...........

Sorry to hear this. This beast shows no mercy.
I lost a 4 year old son to this monster.
It breaks my heart every time I read posts like this.
Thanks for posting the update.

Blake,

This is your friend, Lizzy. Please let happiness and memories of good times surround you now. Think of the people in your life who have been there for you and who are here for you now. Remember you have been a blessing to many people and a wonderful part of the CSN family. We treasure your friendship.

I love you and I am praying for comfort and peace for you.

Hugs,
Lizzy

I really appreciated Blake's presence here...his willingness to share knowledge and his quirky sense of humor were very special. I hope he knows how much he means to people here. Thanks for letting us know, Tommycat.

This is Blake's brother, I just did another post titled "My Brother Blake AKA Buckwirth" which gives an update to his condition. I've already forwarded Kathy all the messages on this post, which are extremely touching. Kathy will try to read these to Blake, as well as the replies to the post I just made.

I also provided my sister with a copy of these posts.

Thanks,

Drummond
