    Resignaton from forum

    I have avoided discussing my medical issues until Johnny & I reached a decision. Last summer I was diagnosed with small cell lung cancer. We went though chemo & radiation treatment. We received a clear diagnosis....until last week. Last week we discovered the cancer has spread to my brain. After discussion about the possibilities, we decided to go no further with treatment but accept whatever fate the disease has in store. Johnny, Clint & Melanie know of our decision and agree with our choice.

    We ask for your prayers for our family.

    My prayers are also with you. So far in my short life, I've seen three people I held close, succumb to cancer. Such things affect me very deeply.

    Wow. You and your family are definitely in my prayers. This really brings perspective to what we should be thankful for and what we take for granted. Pol, you are really one of the best people I've ever met online.

    I was just browsing old forum posts and was wondering why I hadn't seen anything from you in a while.

    My prayers are with you and yours.

    You are amongst my fave people here - if not my fave - and if I truly believed in God I would pray for you. As it is, I will pray to whatever there is that you get better soon. You are a good person and you deserve better.

    Love,

    I am heartsick to hear your news. While I noticed your increased absence from the forum, I never dreamed you were ill. I understand your desire to spend this time with those you love -- away from the rowdy conversations that take place here, but know that you will be missed. You are the epitome of integrity and graciousness. I am better for knowing you, even in this limited sense of a political forum. You have touched many here, as I'm sure you have in your real life. Focus now on yourself. (((hugs)))

    My thoughts and prayers are with you and your loved ones.
