Just an update to let my friends know I am beginning to lose my voice. My arms are going fast. They are adding Oxygen to my Bi-pap now and I am scheduled to go on Hospice next week as far as I know. The body is apparently failing, but only God knows what the future holds.
I am sorry I have not been online to answer your questions or comments. I have had trouble with my computer :evil: that has lasted almost 3 weeks now. Hard drive formatted and reloaded 3 times, still not working properly. I think I have a bad hard drive.
I am trying to get a tilt table for my bed so I can still get on the Internet while in bed, with my portable computer.
It will all come together soon. Just the usual complications of life that seems so bad in this day in which we live.
God is good and that is what really matters. He will provide.
Just wanted to say I love you all and I have appreciated all the support, prayers, and good will over the years. :grin: This Forum has been my lifeline and I know it has been to so many others. Please, do not grow tired of visiting the forum and reaching out to others. You are a blessing and the hands of Jesus comforting all.

Thanks for the update Capt. AL. Sorry things aren't going so well for you. At least it's warm down there compared to here. One thing to be thankful for. Take care buddy. Keep in touch.

AL.

With the prices of hard drives being so cheap these days don't take a chance - get a new one - you don't need any more of this kind of frustration.

Sorry to hear your progression is declining! You have me concerned that you are not going to consider a trache and vent. Have I miss read this?

Hey Bro, God is not finished with you yet! Your presence is needed here so keep your spirits up and keep comming back!

Love Ya!
Your brother in Christ, Joel

Dear Capt Al,

Even though I have not been a member of the forum for very long, I want you to know that your posts were among the first that I read. Your faith and spirit have encouraged me to reach out to God, and because of that I have found my way back to my faith. I think that God has been working through you by means of this forum, and I wish you all of His blessings and peace.

Please let me know if you need anything that has to do with a computer, like I said before I have a geek living in my basement, just like the jokes you hear about the computer genius at 25 still living in mom's basement. We can do something for you I am sure.
