In a telephone conversation with Robt. yesterday I found out why Robt. has been AWOL from this and other forums of late. He is going through a pretty sticky patch right now. His 91 year old mother is suffering from terminal colon cancer and is in the early stages of alzheimers. Robt. moved accross town to a larger house so that he could bring his mom in as a resident with him and his wife and where she can be available for the hospice care that she requires. This has caused a good deal of tension in his home and resultantly Robt. and his wife found it nessecary to seek marital counseling. Being a devout Christian, like me, Robt. asked that I post this message for him and requested our prayers for his mom, his wife and himself. My advice to him was to accept the fact that his mom will soon be gone and that he pray that she not suffer too much in the process. I also told him that his wife is actually his prime concern, and that he should do everything in his power to make her happy now and for the future, because she is his future. He is kept busy for the time being caring for his mom and transporting her to various medical appointments, so he is unable to devote much time to his love of giving his always sound advice to those of us on the computer.
