I just wanted to dedicate this little piece of web to my good friend Bernard who lost his battle to cancer last week and whom we buried today.

It not often you get a friend whose there for your highs and lows, Bernard you were a true friend who saw past my faults and nurtured my strengths I want to say thank you for everything you did for me buddy I owe my success to you.

You touched the lives of many and left them better for it.

I hope we can move forward positively with ultimately what is your last project (helping the long term unemployed and socially isolated into employment). I will ensure we give it everything to make it a success and hopefully make you proud.

When you get to the gates make sure that the red wine and john smiths is up to standard! I’ll leave one on the bar for you tonight buddy.

Until we meet again amigo

Jay

Jay I had no idea of your loss and I just wanted to say my thoughts are with you.

I was very touched by your speech and you only have to read it to see how much you were a good mate to Bernard too. He'll be drinking the best pint of ale that you could possibly imagine right now and toasting to his good friend Jay!

Thanks for the kind words of support i just reread my post and whilst probably slightly embarassed it captured my feelings as i had written it after Bernards funeral and prior to the wake kicking in.

Regarding my mums shes been better she took another turn for the worse today and i pretty much ordered her to rest up she now has to wait a further 2 weeks to wait to see the consultant who will be making the final decisions on the operation(s). Whats clear is the Angioplasty / stents she had fitted aprrox 7 years ago are now not enough. She needs to have a double by pass and she also needs open heart surgery to fit mechanical value i know she is keen to have then both done at the same time rather than face 2 major operations seperately.

I was chatting with her today and we both figured how crazy things have moved on. I mean heart by pass surgery is effectively adding new biological pieces to the heart kinda rewiring it and the mechanical value is the robotic element i guess these things were sci fi 30 / 40 years ago. I know shes worried because her own father passed away during heart surgery when she was just 15 years old (i remember her saying pig parts were used back then). My mum works in a medical centre as an admin manager so she has a sound medical knowledge base so knows what to expect. She also takes about 30 - 40 pills per day for everything from diabetes, athritis, Glaucoma through thyriod problems. I think the hardest part is for the docs is to ensure none of the medications for her various conditions clash lol

Im gonna go make her a coffee and spend some time with her chewing the fat for a few hours before bed.

Thanks again for the support guys it means a lot Smile

Jay

Sorry to hear about your friend, Jay. That was the nicest thing I've read. And dont worry about being embarassed about it. You just said what you were feeling at the moment.

Hope everything goes great with your mom. Mine had the same problem. She had the stints put in and they helped for a couple years, then she had to have a double bypass done. Then a few years ago, my dad had a triple bypass done. So I know what your going through.

Yhea, they are both doing great now. The doctor said if we waited 5 more minutes, my dad wouldnt be here now. Me and him were working out of town 2 1/2 hours away from home when it hit him. He just thought it was pneumonia at first. Now he says he hasnt felt this good in years. You'd be suprised by what doctors can do these days when it comes down to surgerys like this. But the biggest thing is, watching what you eat. Fried foods have to go. Baked, grilled, or broiled is the best.
