First off, congrats to the IDF/Femslash Con team for a wonderful weekend. I didn't get to participate as much as I had hoped, but what I saw was fabulous. And a special thanks to those who attended my panel on vidding. I was sure no one would attend.

Been a rough day at the workplace. I have a coworker who has twin boys, 16 yrs old. The were born with Allagile Syndrome (one needed a liver transplant, the other cardio/pulmonary issues)and were not expected to make it to their tenth birthdays. Last night, after a valiant fight, Chris (cardio/pulmonary issues) passed away after a week in the hospital for a pulmonary bleed.

I was stunned when I heard. This kid has been through so many procedures in the 3 years I have known his mom, that I just assumed he would champion though and make a complete recovery...until the next crisis. When I heard that he had been hiding the severity of this recent illness from his parents, to spare them, I realized he has been ready to go for some time.

So if you have a spare prayer or thought hanging around, throw it towards the Caldwell Family. They have been through so much, and Chris leaves behind a fragile twin as well as two healthy brothers. They are gonna miss him terribly.

Oh man, I'm really sorry about that. It's never fair when someone that young passes, but it's especially difficult when they've fought so long and hard to survive. So my thoughts are with the family. I know you & Mrs. CB will support them as best you can.

I didn't really participate in IDF this year...feeling a tad guilty. Just too much stuff going on. But I trust it all went off splendidly.

It's always a horrible time when that stuff happens... truthfully, we have to always hope kids are gonna be okay, so it has to shake us a bit when they aren't. Thinking of their family though, and of you mate.
