  • The Latest News On My Health

    Most of you are aware that I've been having a battle with lung cancer for the past six months. I had a procedure this week to find out why my breathing has slipped so bad. I'm sorry to report that the outlook is grim. The tumor is blocking the breathing tube to my right lung. All my breathing now is through the smaller left lung. There's nothing that can be done about it. The Oncologist tells me I have between 3 weeks and 3 months left. I was so looking forward to this year's off-season and a better team for next season. For the first time since 1961, I won't be watching the Chargers.

    Happily, I am a born-again follower of Jesus so I know I'll be in heaven. When I get there, I'll be pain-free and breathing well with my new glorified body. I hate the thought of leaving my great wife and all of my loved ones but if God wants me in Heaven, I'm ready. I'm excited to see our Lord someday soon.

    Jesus told us that he will prepare a place for us. I hope he builds me a place built out of one of my favorite woods! ") I'll be excited to see that place.

    I guess it would be wrong to ask for a boat and a large screen TV that plays the Chargers game every week. I'll just trust in the Lord with all my heart.

    I will continue to read in the forum and post for however long I'll be able to.

    I'll miss the many Bolt brothers I've made over the years. I've known a few of you since the old days in the UT forum. Thanks to each of you for being a friend to me and thanks so much to Fleet who made this forum available to all of us.
    Surprise us with a Super Bowl win!

                Prayers for sure coming your way. Glad you are managing it with grace brother. We all will have our time right. Love the family the most. Know we will be rooting our Chargers on and arguing politely on the board! Keep up the spirits…we are here for support.

                  I'm so very sorry to hear that. I was born in 61, so you may be the only one on this board who has been a fan longer than I. Ive enjoyed reading your posts for years. Prayers, and best wishes to you and your family.

                      Ah man, Roo. I'm so sorry to hear this awful news. I'm sorry we couldn't deliver a Super Bowl win for you this year. It has been great talking to you on-line and I've always enjoyed your perspective. You have an amazing outlook on life... one that we could all aspire to. In life, I think we'd all like to think that we have inspired people. Know that you have, brother!

                        Roo, thank you for your years of insight, emotionally grounded posts and positive hopeful outlook at all times. I have greatly appreciated your presence on this and the old Chargers forum. I wish you peace and comfort. I hope and pray that you are granted a 2022 season. We will get there for you!
