So, Giulietta goes on the hard for a bottom job, then Alex goes in for a little overhaul himself (insert “fairing” joke here). Here’s to Alex getting “splashed” before the boat does!.

Get well soon and recover completely, my friend. We already miss your fantastic photo essays and witty repartee.

To all the friends of Alex's and ours, that wrote here wishing us well, I dedicate this thank you note.

My name is Giulietta, and I am Alex's wife. I may have met some of you in time.
I am not very active at writing on forums as this is not one my favorite tasks in life, for that I am so sorry.

Today I saw Fred laughing hard today, so I had a look, and looked for it.

Alex told me, much later at the hospital, that he had told about the disease he had on Sailnet, the day before the operation, against our agrement,..as we believed it would not help him much, should the worse knock at our door, besides it would make him tired...bsides he hated talk about it.

He resisted until the last day, but obviously, it was too strong for him.

If you know Alex, you know he is not a person of hiding his felings, and what is his, belongs to everybody.

Today, I saw my husband come home, walk thru the door, ill, tired and without energy, but he is alive and well, and a few days will return my man to what and where he was before.

To all I want to extend my most sincere THANK YOU in whishing him well, I am sure he will return to you soon.

Thank you and may God Bless You Alll



God forbid the worse of happening, but I realized that tomorrow will be an imprtant day for us. We are very scared, and tense.

Thanks, Giulietta. We've all been praying for Alex, and for you and the kids. We are immensely happy that he is at home with his loving wife and family. We'll continue to pray that the results tomorrow are good. We're with you in spirit. Try to sleep as well as you can. Please know that hundreds of sailors you will never know are praying for the best for you and your husband.

Busymom/Giulietta,

Thank you (and Fred) for providing the update on Alex's condition. We are happy to hear that he's home again with his family.

We're all praying for Alex's good health. He's a strong fighter, and I doubt this setback will keep him down for very long. Please get some rest tonight if you can, and don't overly worry. Tomorrow is another day, with all its promise of new hope.

And let us know if we can help in any way. - John
