To all I apologise...

My dear frineds at Sailnet..

I am going to tell you something I have been hiding for a while, even from the best of friends here.

Over the last year or so, I have had a bad health issue, that was diagnosed on a routine check, that issue has altered my way of being and all. It does give me bad mood swings.

I was diagnosed with a tumour in my gut, (intestins), and Monday I will have a complicated surgery, to see if it can be removed. We still don't know if it's good or bad. I hope it's good, because I would hate to die.

It makes me nervous, and irritatated, and sometimes, makes me treat people with less respect.

For that I appoligise now.

It was this, that made me do those videos, and post sailing stuff like I do..I wanted to leave my sailing expereinces for whoever comes next to see, and say..good it was not lost.


See you in a week or so...if I don't show up, my wife will need to sell the boat, she's a good boat, that will sail you fast and make you proud of owning, please buy it, she will need the money.

If all goes well, I will no longer be an AFOC, because they are removing a lot of gut..which is where my brain is connected (EHEHEH).so I can't post crap, or only little crap.

Your friend, at sailnet

Alex

Alex,

From a guy that had major open heart surgery a couple years back, please accept my wishes for a successful surgery and a speedy recovery.
