" Tiny glimmer of hope from nurse this morning. Oxygen requirement down to 60% (from 75 last night) on tummy. The test will be is he can sustain that when turned on his back. Please keep praying that he will continue to progress from here."
" I have just been called into the hospital to see Steve. He has a bacterial infection in his lungs which they are treating with antibiotics, but they give him only a very slim chance of survival. The doctor said he's at a precipice and at the end of a window of opportunity for recovery. Please still keep praying for a miracle."
...just sitting at my office desk, staring out of my head in grief and deep sadness, still unbelieving all that really happened.
I cannot say anything, but that I am sorry so much! We have been in contact for 16 years, I feel as if I were really known him as a friend.
Please Kev, express my deep condolences to his family, also thank you took this very sad task to keep the community informed!
TL, my friend! I hope there is an Admin. job for "Real Earth (RE) Forums" at God's Boards! I think you should do some clear-ups and necessary bans around! Now good bye to you, but be sure if there is such a board out there, then I will sign in immediately after they rung my bell...
Dear Steve, The Ledge - God bless your memories!
All kmz content I share were created with Google Earth (PC-version). All of my nGEC forumthreads All about my avatar kml2xls
I hope frequently hearing sad or alarming news from everywhere nowadays will not drop people around the world into a situation of being apathetic and do continue to question why all these happen.
With every person we know fading away, our memories get more colorful. Thank you Steve, for all the huge tasks you have achieved. It did not happen in this world but we will eventuallyenjoy a summer beach and trip one day.
Yes, JM, he was the one who founded this little forum, which grew and grew... He was a legend before that, too. It's been days, now, and I am still trying to get this through my head! What an awful time we are living in, for nearly a year, and all we can do is follow instructions from experts. Like so many people my age, I am alone most days, most weeks and months and on and on. Steve's passing reminds me that lonely isolation isn't the worst thing that can happen.
It's a terribly sad time for Mel, and I wish her strength and peace through the holiday season, especially. Surely, the cats miss Steve, too. He loved his little gang.
Kevin, thank you very much for keeping us informed. Syzygy, Walter, willi, Lockhopper, hhgygy, Hill,Tek, Frank, Robin and anyone else who comes upon this post, I'll be thinking of all of you! An old Panoramio friend of mine (Gatoland, in Spain) got Covid in about April and had a very rough time.
Be well, everyone, and make a religion out of masks and standing far apart.
KitsuneFox: syzygy - posts I have made here do not receive much attention. I may do a detailed writeup of the now lost Edgemont Park in PA, one of the first electrified trolley parks in the world, but still debating. I'm missing 1 key bit of information.
