Robin has been ill
« on: January 25, 2017, 03:37:45 PM »
Forum members, Robin has been very ill and hospitalized since the 28th of Dec.  He has had a very rough go of it but is now recovering nicely and will be headed home soon.

I have been chatting with his bride daily, and she assures me he is on his way to speedy recovery flirting, telling jokes, and keeping up with the daily news.

Please keep Robin and his bride in you prayers and thoughts.

One last thing, when he gets back and active on the forum don't mention anything about the pictures circulating of a rearview of him in a hospital gown, he has been through enough without the humiliation of that getting out in front of his friends on the forum. ;)

Best wishes.

Thanks for bringing the forum up to date.  I first got the news direct from Teresa several weeks ago but did not "go public" as I felt it was important to maintain their privacy as things were pretty serious at that time ( though I did privately inform a few of the forum's management team, for obvious reasons) So pleased and relieved to hear that he's on the mend!   :D

Thank you for the update and thank goodness he's recovering.
His absence was of great concern.

Had an update from Robin himself yesterday.  Thankfully, after a month in hospital he is now at home. However, he apparently faces some major surgery in the near future so the road to recovery will likely be a long one. He's naturally rather weak and tired so unfortunately I don't think we'll be seeing him here on the forum anytime soon. I'm sure all we AMF-ers wish him well...and a speedy recovery!

Thanks for the update, Ian. Glad to hear he is home and recovering, albeit only temporarily. Keeping him and his wife in my thoughts.

Thank you all!
I am better, but still have a LONG way to go. I don't know when I'll be back in the saddle,but I will keep people informed.

Most thankfully,
