I've been wondering exactly the same thing Hazel! I also very much enjoy reading @kimchoson 's contributions and also hope that all is well with him.
It's nice to see all the friendships that have been formed on the forum and how much you care for and support one another.
there is always concern on here when we talk to people dealing with cancer when it all goes quiet
its a difficult one to move forward
The majority of us who now advise others, our intentions are pure, but if something has happened then we are left thinking the worst
perhaps it would be an idea that when you sign up that you have to give a second email, but on the other hand it may not be such a good idea, as any family member dealing with a situation I am sure will not want to be prompted by an email asking for an update
its a difficult one and a personal one too
i have spoken to fellow sufferers in the past who's partners eventually finish off their post and perhaps this is a better way .... just give you close friend or partner you login and when the time is right make a post.
as previous posts suggests sometimes people just take a break
who knows it's just one of those things that we are just going to hope for the best
Before Max56 died she asked her husband to text me once she'd gone in order to let her online friends know the news. I've already asked my wife to do something similar when I finally pop my clogs.
At least that way people know that if I'm not online for a while it is more likely that I'm away on holiday than bad news
Dave and hazel
this is a difficult one indeed
Perhaps it's one for the moderators to take forward .... god knows how I include them in this ... hopefully they pick it up somehow
i guess, although our intentions are good, waiting to be updated by a grieving relative (if this is the case) is a task that I would expect to be way down their list of priorities, regardless of it's facilitated by a text, email or some other means.
apart from that I will just work on the basis that they are enjoying life and so they should
Thanks for giving us a shout about this.
Let's hope that, as you say, he's enjoying life and taking a little break. We'll certainly be keeping our eyes peeled in case he pops back!
