I'll be honest, he didn't have the best weekend. I was going to send out a message to everyone last night but I'm waiting for some news this morning.

We have to be prepared I'm afraid.

Hello everyone,

I'm afraid the news today isn't great at all. Patrick had been doing really well over the weekend, turning his head to face people who were talking to him and even turning his head towards the tv. On Sunday they actually took his glasses into hospital so that he could see Dr Who on his tv.

But since then he's been much worse...

On Sunday he started fitting and then became much more unresponsive and also very restless.

I was going to write yesterday to bring you all up to date but things seemed to be moving fast and it was a very confusing picture - some very good news and some very bad news - and so I wanted to see how things turned out before contacting you. His parents had a meeting today with his doctors and I hoped that they would be able to clarify where Patrick was headed with his recover.

Tragically they have indeed clarified his situation. They have decided that he has lost all remaining cognitive function and so there is no point in treating him any more. He is being ejected from the ICU and put into a general neuro ward with the expectation that he will probably get pneumonia and die fairly quickly. They have no long term plans for what to do with him if he doesn't pass away soon.

I'm so sorry to be bringing you this news. I suppose we can hope that the stimulation of a general ward provokes some kind of obvious and undeniable response from Patrick so that they are forced to reconsider his condition but it is looking extremely bleak for him at this moment.

Send him you kindest thoughts at this time.

Best wishes

Alex

And another thing - despite his long battle with cancer, surgeries and medications, Padraig still managed to drag his arse to the store and then the post office to purchase gifts for my Sainted nephew going through surgeries of his own. He's a special fella and if it's God's will he should leave us and not be sick any longer, I have prayed for a peaceful passing for our dear Padraig and strength for his family and friends.

This board will not be the same without him. He really was the glue that held this joint together.

God bless him.

Now is the time to consider something from an Injun.


Please,


Send good energy forth to our little friend (who has the fierce loyalty of a lion's heart) these things, and more...



...your recognition of his photogenic memory of every thing that was written on this board,


...your ball-busting-est memory of him attacking anyone he thought was a threat (he is ever vigilant and quite protective of us, here)


...your appreciation of the effort he has taken to elucidate us with his marvelous internet finds each time, as well as his own encyclopedic love for Star Trek and Dr. Who and Marvel comix...


...your own memories of DRINKing with such a fine Scot as is he, be it in person, or in chat, or on Skype...


...and let him know that he is a damn fine man.


he is still within our mortal coil.

he is still here on this earthly plane.


For now

Many people knew him certainly new him longer and certainly better than I did, but I suppose I'll throw in my cent or two.

As Willies said he certainly had encyclopedic knowledge of most matters we discussed during numerous Skype calls and my short stay at his place during Christmas week. Discussion flowed so flawlessly through Roman history and it's peculiar characters,personal stories/experiences (and boy did he have colorful selection in that category) to comic books. I certainly haven't met someone I could get along as seamlessly in a quite a while.

He also was/is one of the most genuine and no-bullshit human beings I've had privilege of meeting. This indeed was most welcome change of pace in place of family drama with more fake smiles and indirect assholishness than average soap opera.

Not to mention with all of his burdens he still had so much to energy to commit to others is just a testament how much heart the man has.

Bur out.

Poor old chap. I'm still rooting for him. Never give up hope! Now here's a toast to Palinka! May bacchus bring drinking dreams to his comatose brain!
Here is something he would appreciate.

Hahahaha. Thanks for that. I really needed a good laugh right now and that link definitely did it. I don't like to deal in favorites, but that is definitely one of my favorite movies, too.

I didn't know how to respond to this when I first read about this. Now, several days later, all I can still manage is: FUCK! this is terrible.

I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say that's roughly about what we're all thinking.
