News about Paucle

Post by alan tiger » Wed Jan 07, 2015 12:10 am

i must announce a sad note. regular poster Paucle has been in ICU since November 23, battling complications from systemic sepsis. his brother says that Paucle had been doing well after several emergency surgeries, but had a setback last week that has negatively affected his kidneys, and he's now on dialysis. i'll post additional news as i learn. i've known Paucle (and his real name) since the early '90s, and as long as i've known him, he has always been troubled by medical ills. :(

Note that I moved these posts to their own topic, mostly to give them greater visibility.

Echo the choruses of well-wishes to our friend Paucle. Hang in there buddy, we're all waiting for your return! Take it at your own time!

Thanks, Alan – very sorry to hear.

Is there a way the board can send him or his family something? I'd certainly contribute.

I was thinking about him the other day, wondering where he had been. Please let him know everyone on here is thinking about him and hopes he is able to return here soon.

That is a bummer. Best wishes for a quick recovery. He is missed around here.

Paucle has been a valued voice in this chorus for many years. I have heard it most in his SHC writing, which has been consistently top-notch. I hope things go well for him. I'll be praying.

Thanks Alan. Uncle Paul is one of the greatest assets to JBoard. He is definitely in my prayers. I wish him a full and speedy recovery and miss him when he's not here.

Paucle - you are in my thoughts and prayers.

I'd also like to contribute to something for Paucle and/or his family. I'll keep checking back

When you spend so much time on this board, you do start to feel like you know a lot of the posters. I read the title on this thread and really didn't want to open it. Paucle, keep fighting, and I hope and will pray to see you posting here again very soon.
