Somewhere along the line I think the current topic for this disappeared in the transition. This is not so good. I herewith fix the omission. Vibe on!
hard rain is falling
if anyone can spare a thought it would be much appreciated.my brother-in-law's mother has just had a double stroke that has completely incapacitated her; a strong Yorkshire woman, already on kidney dialysis three times a week, she is now in a coma, leaving adrift a husband in his eighties with health issues of his own. a typically Northern England non-complaining type, to rob her of her life force seems so unjust. we can only hope and pray that things go smoothly and she retains her undeniable dignity to the sadly, inevitable end. positive vibes for folks in need is desperately sought. thank you.
man, so sorry
vibes aplenty headed their way.
fruition of the path
your positivity must have been felt, mary!doctors have no idea how, but after a stroke that affected both sides of the brain, leaving her in a coma, she suddenly had a small recovery on Saturday morning. she has some movement back, returned to consciousness and was able to talk on the phone!!!! that's the tough Northern generation for you; simply refuses to be told what to do by a stroke!!!! thanks so much.
healing thoughts needed for the Premier League team Bolton Wanderers player, Fabrice Muamba, who collapsed on the pitch during an FA Cup Quarter Final match.he remains in a critical condition in intensive care after suffering a cardiac arrest. only 23 years old with a one year old son, please send as much positive thoughts as you can. after unsuccessful attempts to resuscitate him on the pitch, he was rushed to the London Chest Hospital. from The Guardian - Muamba, who has a one-year-old son, Joshua, and a fiancee, Shauna, is a man who has already overcome many ordeals in a young life that began far away from the glitz of the Premier League, in Kinshasa in what is now the Democratic Republic of Congo in 1988. In a Guardian interview in June, he said he was planning to return to the country incognito to see the few family members that still live there under aliases and to explore the possibility of setting up a foundation that would give other youngsters a way out. "I'm not the most talented footballer but I know what I can do," he said at the time. "What I have experienced is what keeps me going and gets me out of whatever difficulty I face. I just set myself up to give it my best shot." But a trip of that sort would have posed serious risks for Muamba. His father, Marcel, worked as an adviser to the country's then prime minister and had to flee for his life after the regime of Mobutu Sese Seku was toppled by Laurent-Désiré Kabila, the father of the Democratic Republic of Congo's current president, Laurent Kabila. Before reaching England, Marcel first took refuge in the home of his brother, Ilunga, who was later murdered for sheltering him, and it was not until 1999 that Fabrice, then aged 11, was able to move to London with his mother, Gertrude, to rejoin their father. But despite his strange new surroundings – the cold weather and incomprehensible language – young Muamba adapted quickly and was soon doing well at his new school in Waltham Forest, east London. And his footballing ability quickly brought him to the attention of Premier League scouts, with Arsenal snapping him up for their much-vaunted academy. Since then Muamba has risen through the ranks of England's footballing system, speaking often about his joy at "feeling part of England" and of his dream to represent his adopted country at senior level. That journey began after he made his senior team debut in a Carling Cup tie against Sunderland when he was 17. That was in 2005, when Arsenal last had a team that was winning trophies. Muamba then went out on loan for a season to Birmingham City, where he won the club's young player of the year award, performing with such aplomb that the club signed him from Arsenal on a full-time basis. At about this time he also made his debut for the England under-21 team, which he has gone on to represent 33 times, the second-highest number of appearances at that level by any England player. In 2008 Bolton Wanderers paid more than £5m to prise him from Birmingham. Since then he has become one of the club's most effective players and was voted Bolton's player of the year in 2010. Since Saturday his many friends and admirers inside and outside football have expressed their shock and sadness and on Sunday a steady stream of fans and well-wishers visited Bolton's Reebok stadium to place flowers, shirts and other tributes at the ground. Thousands more have left messages of support on a series of Get Well Soon Fabrice Muamba pages set up on Facebook. Fans paid tribute at matches across the country, applauding the player. Chelsea players wore 'Pray 4 Muamba' vests under their shirts in their FA Cup match against Leicester. A statement from the club and hospital on Sunday morning said Muamba was a critical condition in intensive care. "As is normal, he remains anaesthetised and will be for at least 24 hours," it added. As friends and supporters waited for further updates, a steady stream of colleagues from the world of football – including the Arsenal defender Johan Djourou and the Spurs striker Jermain Defoe – arrived at the London Chest hospital. Bolton Wanderers' manager, Owen Coyle, who has been to visit his player at the hospital, said Muamba's condition remained "very serious". "Fabrice's family have asked me to pass on their thanks for the many, many kind messages of support from not only Bolton fans but also fans from clubs across the country and abroad. All our thoughts and prayers are for Fabrice and his family at this time." He added: "It's very serious. There's no getting away from that. God willing, he makes it through."
wow, what a week!
hoping things get better for these folks, yikes. Enough already!
Fluffanutter breaks a leg!
Best wishes for a speedy recovery to Fluffanutter. In http://www.dead.net/forum/crazy-quilt-stargown he reports breaking his leg, while golfing. I'm not sure if he rolled the golf cart, fell out of it, or stumbled down a steep grade. Quite an experience for the poor chap, especially with the initial indifference from golf course personnel. I do know a few Dead-friendly attorneys...

Just a box of rain
.I just want to send out hugs to everyone who kept in touch with me over the past few months. Just in case you are keeping tabs. Last year i found out my wife was cheating on me and i was laid offf also we have two small children. Lets just say my world came tumbling down and push me into a real dark corner. There were a few brothers and sisters who kept sending me p.m.'s sharing thier simular struggles. I just want to say THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU. There where times when your letters caused the tears of cleansing to flow. I have finally realized that the light at the end of the tunnel is not a speeding train. Yes it sucks going to court fighting for my children but we will get through this. And of course i still have some bad days but those are getting fewer and farther between. HUGS TO ALL AND TO ALL POSITIVE VIBES
Best Wishes, Noonie
You know the old saying... "Time wounds all heels". The best revenge is living well.

From Mona: A brother going into surgery tomorrow. Good vibes needed!
TY Marye <3
He made it out of surgery and heard others waiting for there loved ones playing so he invited them to play with with him. :)
I know how hard it is to lose a close and loved friend. I just lost a good buddy of mine at the end of February and it was totally unexpected. Man, that funeral was hard! There were lots of tears, but also some good belly laughs, too. Good luck on Tuesday, I know it's going to be tough but I hope the positive memories will help see you through. Take care...
Sorry to hear about your
Sorry to hear about your grandfather. I know its not easy to cope. Just always remember though he passed away but his memories will always live as long as you continue to live the lesson he taught.
My friend Duane
Life is slipping away for my KC friend Duane. Throat cancer has spread into his lungs: heart / lung congestion is setting in. Offer a prayer or kind thought for him, as well as for his wife Cindy and their 2 daughters.
Milwaukee Brewers shortstop Jean Segura
Yesterday, before the Brewers half of inning number one he was struck in the head by an errant swinging bat. Luckily, he's ok (relatively speaking) but it got him square in the right temple. There are pictures on the net, I would not recommend watching if you have a weak stomach. I'm sending some positive vibrations. Any help would be appreciated...
