Reality Bites (Updated)

There you are going about your normal daily business, trying to earn a crust, trying not to incur the wrath of your partner and hopefully, if there is any time left, give the Government hell on your humble blog. Suddenly, without warning, reality jumps up and bites you on the arse.

Unfortunately I heard distressing news today about TheEye, my co-conspirator on this blog, and my very good friend. He has suffered an unfortunate accident and is currently in the ITU of his local hospital.

Awful news.

David Vance one of my fellow co-conspirators at All Seeing Eye, he of A Tangled Web and Biased BBC fame, will join with me in doing our utmost to maintain TheEye's blog so it is there for him to come back to when he has fully recovered.

I am deeply distressed at today's news. TheEye has become a great friend over the last few months and I can only wish him well for a speedy recovery and a return to his rightful place, both here, where he also does a lot to help me behind the scenes, and at the All Seeing Eye blog.

Even more importantly than that, friendship is a very precious thing and we are all missing his at this present time.

If all our thoughts, prayers and good wishes were the finest medicine then hopefully he will be back amongst us all very soon.

David Vance also has this to say over at B-BBC.

That just leaves me to say please feel free to leave your good wishes in the comments section below and, if you can find time in your busy day, perhaps you would call in at The All Seeing Eye blog occasionally to help support it until TheEye is fit and well enough to return.

Thank you.



+++++ UPDATE 24/06 +++++

Latest news on TheEye is not good.

He is intubated, on a ventilator and sedated,
the next 24/48hrs are critical.

Please continue to spare a thought and a prayer
to help him through his darkest hours.

I intend to return to blogging just as soon as I can get my head around this distressing news. I know that is what TheEye would want and I am not going to let a good friend down.

In the meantime, thank you to all of those
who have already sent their good wishes

We need more people to take down Labour not less, they deserve it. And they can take the bloody EU with them 'n all.

Bloody world.

Sad news. We all need friends but at times like this it goes to show we need friends more than ever.

So sorry to read your latest update - I really hope he pulls through.

Gigits said...

I'm so sorry to read the update. I really hope he is ok.

And don't worry about the blogging during this difficult time, mate. There is plenty of great stuff on your blog to keep drawing in the crowds, for weeks to come, without you even touching it.

Take care.
