    Default I never wanted to write this post

    Dear friends:

    Our long time poster and great friend, Bushbaby, is currently in the Bournigal Clinic in Puerto Plata. He is not well, and I seriously doubt that he will surpass this crisis, I am so sorry to say. I visited him today and he recognized me and smiled and took my hand. we shared some moments and some memories. Prayers would be good about now.

    On another, and even more sobering note: The incident of my visit awoke me to the fact that no matter how much you try to avoid it, you really have to have a prostate exam. Anything else is plain foolishness, as my dear wife (who is working at the Cancer Center at HOMS) drove home this morning. While my PSA numbers are very good, the old tactile exam is still the very best way to know for sure. So please, get it done. Dr. Chancho Estrella at the Unión Médica del Norte here is Santiago is the #1 guy for this...both my wife and my son agree on this...

    Say prayers for Grahame, he not only needs them, he deserves them..


    Sadly,

    Default Self-care

    I am so guilty for no longer doing BSE's, and I urge everyone to take responsibility for self-exams, female or male.

    Sending white light and best wishes for a refuah sh'leimah.

    I cannot imagine the DR without Graham. He (and Ginny) were the anchors of the ex-pats beginning years ago when there were not so many of us here. They taught us how to live in this country, how to keep our sense of humor, and how to fit in.

    Graham, I wish you all the best, whatever that may be. Know that you are loved.
