  • Update from BondoBilly

    I'd sent BillieGee (As I've always call him; "Bill G.") an email asking about him, and letting him know how pleased I am with the shirt he and Ellen did for my SDC Chapter. Here's his reply.

    We did the golf shirt with the embroidered logo.

    I am still in the hospital..., get those CASO guys to pray harder

    This is no fun. Since Dec. 15, 2010 I've only been home Eleven days.

    All of Winter and part of Spring in the hospital.

    Continued prayers and best wishes your way, Bill. Hang tough! BP
    We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

    Ayn Rand:
    "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

    G. K. Chesterton: This triangle of truisms, of father, mother, and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilizations which disregard it.

      Best wishes from the NON-CASOs as well to one of our favorite people. In fact, one of our favorite couples in the Club! Get well soon, my friend!

        I know it's easy for me to say "hang in there," but it's nevertheless sincere. You're one of the good guys in this hobby and I can speak for the Long Island Region that we wish you a complete recovery. Best to Ellen.

          Miss your emails, Bill. We all hope you are out of there soon.

          Glad you have an iPhone in there at least. Try that camera out on some of the nurses... make good use of your time. They have to be well amused by you by now. Stretch will understand that you need to keep up your camera skills.

                I am really home and appreciate the
                Cards and e-mails Hardest part is learning to walk and
                Climb stairs again. Very hard since I have been off my feet since
                Jan 19

                Bottom line is I had pneumonia which went to an untreatable form until they
                Used steroids which made me diabetic.
                I am not on insulin as yet and hope not to be be but
                Do the finger stick twice a day

                I am going to order vanity plates that read
                "PIN CUSHIN"

                Nice to be home and grateful for
                for the post, letter, cards, and e-mail.
                Ellen was so taken back she
                was drawn to tears

                Thanks again

                  Bill, it is so good to have you back posting here that I too am almost drawn to tears. It is really great to have you back with us. Our prayers have been answered. Take care, do what the docs say and don't worry too much about pricking your fingers twice a day. Believe me you will get used to it.

                        Glad you're finally home, Bill. Has to really feel great to be back in your own bed. One full day of out-patient duty is too much for me. Good luck getting yourself back to normal. Hopefully it will be warm soon and you can get outside to enjoy it again.

                          It is so darn good to hear that! These modern variants on old diseases can be pretty tough to shake now that they have been around antibiotics and the like for 50 odd years. A couple of jabs a day to monitor your sugars is not too high a price to pay for being back home with Ellen where you need to be; 'tis only a shame that if that was the result, that they didn't get the steroids to you just a bit sooner. Building up the leg muscles and stamina again after a way too long bedrest is the pits, but at least Spring and nicer weather is coming on.

                            Great news Bill. I was just the Hospital for one and a half days and that was way to long for me!
