On Jan. 1, I had a seizure. After going to GRMC and getting a CTscan it was determined that I had a brain tumor and I was flown to Las Cruces. The hockey puck size thing was removed from my head but things are shaky and will likely remain so for quite a while but i wanted to write and thank john crow and many others for their concern. It will be ok. Everything will. Trust me. I kissed death right on the lips and I know that everything, really everything will work out just fine.
Just keep living in love, try and be nice (I really know it's hard), and hug someone for fun out of the blue. They are closer to us than we will ever know.
Will talk soon. Maybe.

Dear Richard,

I'm so glad you posted this, so that we can be thinking of you and sending you energy for healing. It sounds like its been a scary eventful week and that is likely an understatement. Don't know if you've read My Stroke of Insight. Its by a neuroscientist who had a stroke and her experience around that. While you didn't have a stroke your brain did definately experience a traumatic insult so it may be that her persepective on her recovery process would be helpful.

My love to you and Edwina. You know where I am if there is anything that I can do !

We are all very thankful that it was only a kiss and death decided to give you back to us. Your writing is a treasure and you would be terribly missed! My thoughts are with you for a speedy recovery.

Heal well, Richard. I find close brushes with Death very conducive to the very state of mind you express. The English female saint Julian of Norwich said it this way: All is well and all is well and all will be well. Blessings!

HOLY CRAP, MAN!!! I go away for a couple of weeks and you fall apart??!! I can't go away from home without something big happening in this town. Were there headlines in the newspaper? "Richard has seizure"!! Knowing our local "newspapers" , they probably ran that headline and then wrote a story about how you busted a drug operation. OK OK, what was the catalyst for this little bump in the road? The Republican debates. You were laughing so hard you had a seizure? Were you so upset about the Internet censorship bills in congress that you totally lost it and had a seizure? Or was it something much simpler and much more profound, like Mitch discontinuing your favorite flavor of Gelato. Whatever it was you came through it. Though I have to say, that whole kissing death thing sounds like zero fun. I always imagined death with really bad breath so kissing him/her/it, would be the second worst thing that could happen.
I'm very happy that you are still amongst the living. It will afford me the chance to get to know you better. As you say "everything is going to be alright". After all, it always is.

Peace and Love, Chris Aquino

And it must follow, as the night the day,
Thou canst not then be false to any man.”
