A while back, ChrisO, one of our long-time members and a member of the moderating staff here on AWF, informed the staff he was suffering from Mesothelioma. He informed us that at a critical moment, Rainlover, another long-time member, would keep us informed on his condition.
Rainlover, as promised, has brought along an update on the condition of ChrisO.
Vassago thanks for re posting.
For those who did not know ChrisO, one of our long term members is currently very ill.
By trade Chris is an Instrument Maker. I am not exactly sure what he did but in the early days he was required to work with steam. It was common in those days to wrap the pipes in an insulation cloth that was partly made of asbestos.
Early this year he was complaining of some pain which has turned out to be a kind of Cancer that is a result of working with this asbestos.
Chris has now admitted himself into hospital. I went in to see him at dinner time tonight. He cannot properly feed himself and he also is not sure of his surroundings as he is on strong medication.
I will keep you informed from time to time through Vassago.
This is very sad news. I'm hoping everyone at AWF will keep ChrisO and his friends/family in your thoughts and/or prayers.
