    Unfortunately, her body began to break down the way diabetics bodies tend to do, she just started that process earlier than most diabetics. In her case, it was her vision and her kidneys that went first, and she underwent dialysis. Eventually that didn't work.

    But that was a while ago, and medical science always seems to be making progress. Ape hasn't lived his entire life without a pancreas, so hopefully the damage to other organs is minimal.

    Difficult to pronounce, but I agree with you.

    Creeping Death ...

    If you possibly can, please, please, come in again and give us an update on our friend.

    We are missing, and worrying about him something fierce in here.

    Thanks in advance ~ ABC

    Ape is still hanging in there, as recently as yesterday. Plenty of emergency surgeries, periotonitis, dialysis, and other stuff that is hard to spell.

    If he gets through all of this, I would imagine it would be a while before he gets back on his butt and returns to posting.

    Go ape go!

    Thank you, thank you, for coming in, CD!

    At the moment we don't really care about him posting again soon, so much as just being able to know that he is "still hanging in there!"

    Thanks again.

    Thanks so much, CD, for posting. We've all been worried about him. If you get a chance to somehow get word to him, tell him we're all pulling for him---and praying. We're waiting for him to get home so we can talk on Skype again.

    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.
    Live every day as if it were your last, because one of these days, it will be.
