A Personal Note To Readers

October 20th, 2008 · 17 Comments

Recently, I was diagnosed with an illness which will reduce the level of my blogging over in the next couple months. 

Thank you for your support of and involvement in this blog since it was launched. I hope you will bear with me during this period.

    Please take care of yourself. I promise we’ll all be here when you get back.

    Take care, John. Please let us know if there’s anything we can do.

    Get well soon!

    Several weeks? Doesn’t sound like your garden variety cold. That’s one more thing we need to be prepared for – sudden medical issues. Feel better bro.

    Even when you are prepared you can meet the unexpected.
    You will be in my thoughts and prayers.
    Hope you are up to get back to blogging soon as you will be missed.

    Your friends in Portland are thinking of you…this sound more serious than a “get better soon,” but we certainly hope you do.

    Get well, John.

    Yikes. I just started reading this blog, so you are not allowed to get too sick. Heh. :)

    Well, I hope you get well soon. Keep us updated.

    Best wishes to get you through.

    I hope that you get better without too many down days.

    I’m sorry to hear about this curve ball you’ve been thrown!
    Take care of yourself. You’ll be in our thoughts and we’ll be here when you come back.

    John…the blog will still be here 10 weeks from now. Rest and get well. I look forward to seeing you hale and hardy.

    Maybe you can dictate a few posts to someone? That way we get a few updates on how you are doing?

    No one is tougher than you are. Here’s to a speedy and full recovery.

    With love,

    Crap! I was just writing a post telling people to monitor your blog in light of the latest al Qaeda threat, and now I learn this. Call me if there’s anything I can do for you. I don’t normally extend such courtesies to Yankees fans, but for you, I bend the rules. Get well quick.

    Get well soon John. We’re eager to have you back, but would rather have you better.

    Hope you’re feeling better soon. Thanks for the link.

    John — We are thinking of you this Thanksgiving with hopes and prayers for your quick recovery. Be well and do let me know if there’s anything you need.
