During the Manhattan Project two scientists were working on a circular radio wave -- a long shot, but nobody knew what would be needed to make an atom bomb.

One day, the younger exclaimed, "I have it! I've diagrammed a circular radio wave!" and thrust his paper at the elder scientist.

The old man said, "You young fool! This is nothing! A naught!" and he rolled the paper into a thin tube and thrust it into a pencil sharpener, the shards falling to the floor.

Immediately they were surrounded by a large group of very angry janitors complaining about the mess.

Then a huge explosion happened and a mushroom cloud rose into the air.

And that's what happens every time you get a critical mass at ground zero.

I've been hiding in the shadows on the deck for too long. I've continued to listen in on the rest of the crew, and you are in my thoughts. I think I can say that I'm healing okay, though I'm sure I haven't shed my last tear. I have a regular weekday morning routine of walking and a little workout at the city "community center" (primarily a rec center) followed by coffee with others on the same schedule. Judy initiated that while she still had the capacity, for which I'm thankful now. I put in some desk shifts at the local art gallery, as required if you have work in our local art association's section of the gallery; I usually have at least some photography up.Just now bracing myself to sign up for a 6 or 7 country look around Europe.

Just retourned home on th 8th from a very enjoyable 14 day group tour all over Western Europe. Sat down for a bit to catch up on computer. Suddenly very tender around one eye; looked in the mirror and it looked about like a chicken about to hatch. Local ER sent me a few miles to one with more relevant docs. Multiple consultations. just had a biopsy of the temporal artery. Have had some intervenous steroids which have calmed things down, but they all agree they needed to check for an inflammatory condition which might call for aggressive treatment to keep my vision safe. Im not panicking, but Im concerned.

Dean, you need to get checked for Giant Cell Arteritis, GCA for short. Along with the temporal arterial biopsy, ultrasound arterial scanning is increasingly relied upon. Check out the work of Prof. B. Dasgupta. He is the world authority. If GCA is diagnosed, please do all you can to get the steroid treatment started asap. I've been down this rocky road myself & your post has a familiar ring to it. Time is of the essence.
                                                                  Every good wish,
                                                                                             Nigel.

Dean, I'm very pleased to read that you are receiving the appropriate treatment promptly. Early, aggressive intervention with steroids is key to getting control of GCA. Ask about ultrasound, arterial scanning, an approach developed by Prof. Dasgupta.

Thanks, Kerb and all; The eye has been fine since the first couple of days of steroids after the initial abrupt symptoms. Monday I had a couple of docs each shine 4 or 5 k watts in my eyes while a herd of others stood by and discussed, and no one saw need for further treatment. Incidental goofy factoid: I had had a mention by phone of the need to have the STAPLES from my biopsy removed while there. I was sure I would feel staples, and that there was little or no chance that staples would be used for the incision I had, but figured it was a slip of the tongue and I needed sutures removed. I had soluble sutures, as I should have suspected all along, and I think they were gone completely by Tuesday.

A few thoughts FWIW.

I'm sure Bobert appreciates all the good thoughts and prayers over his wife's health situation and his long and painful history with cancer-- he lost his first wife to it.

I would like to point out though that he always speaks of her as THE P-Vine,and for those of us who pray, it matters to get the name right.

Also, Bobert (as Dharmabum has done) has chosen Facebook as his live platform from which to provide health updates and requests for support. News here will tend to be out of date, as a result. There have been some hopeful updates at FB, but it's undeniably a scary and dangerous time, regardless.

My own health is dodgy enough nowadays that I no longer run the Mudcat Prayer Chain which used to operate very actively in email. In those days, Mudcat had to work very hard to keep the peace around issues of spirituality. People heading those efforts were known and respected members with experience in such matters IRL.

In this work, it's so important to keep boundaries in mind, and check with folks going through troubles about what's OK to post-- for example I know the P-Vine's real first name, but I use Bobert's name for her here-- because he does.

We've lost so many dearly loved members here, and some quite recently, that I think it serves the community best when we can provide accurate information, since any info is likely to really worry a lot of folks. Or to allude to troubles just very generally, when it's not our own troubles we're posting about. These recent, hopeful FB comments from Bobert, due to the nature of the FB medium, were buried in Comments on Comments-- easy to miss. Yet it's still where the actual updates are.

This is the beginning of a difficult season of the calendar year.
For some reason
many of us have sustained bereavements or crises
in autumn and going into the year-end holiday season.

So this is a sensitive time with difficult "anniversaries" triggering intense emotions and distracting memories.

Just dropped in and caught that post. I won't ask for grief support just now, but cross some fingers for me. I ventured onto Silver Singles site recently. After a bit one woman and I found ourselves focusing in. We progressed to email where it's easier to flow a little more, and have been on the phone regularly for a while now. Sunday we drive a little to a halfway point for a first face to face. We've already covered a lot of ground; I know that she's a very intelligent, thoughtful person, the pictures are up to date, our thinking on a lot of basics is very compatible, and we communicate with warmth and humor. I should say cross some fingers for US: that at minimum we come out glad to have met, and that we both make right decisions beyond that.
