Hey all , No VTRBob around for a few weeks UPDATED!

Discussion in 'General Motorcycling Discussion' started by VTRBob, Jul 12, 2005.

  1. Hi everyone,
    I know i've been quiet on here for the past few weeks, but alots been happening, some good, some not so.

    New Job Rocks :)

    But now im off asap to Sydney ( i think im riding up ) not sure yet.
    My family although not been a really close one we still stay in touch
    offten via the phone etc

    Well not an hr ago i get a phone call from my Bro in Syd
    WTF its not the w/end and it not after 7 pm TROUBLE !!

    i was right, my mums been fighting that bastard cancer for over a
    year now. and she had a fall yesterday to which needed the usual xrays
    and the Doc noticed a slight sluring of her voice ( i had too last time i talked to her but put it down to the Chemo and being tied )
    So he ordered a new CAT scan and MRI

    The short of it is , she's in for brain surg tmw morning to try and remove one Pharkin big lump thats up in there and its a 50/50 if she's going to make it through in realitivly one piece.

    So you melb guys / girls wont be seeing my happy flirty self at any coffee or other events for awhile , and i just got the bike going good enough the the ride this sat night too

    See you all when im back

  18. Re: Hey all , No VTRBob around for a few weeks

    The chance stats were a little better due to placement, but a very similiar thing (brain surgery to cut out a life threatening big lump) happened in my close family recently enough that it sometimes feels like yesterday. It simply amazes me what surgeons can do these days and how even a 50/50 chance is good odds, not to mention how the human body, combined with a strong will and some hard work, can be resilient. Your Mum sounds like a very resilient woman Bob, so here's hoping the best for your all. It's a long and tough recovery road.
