...My COPD has finally caught up to me. I had a pre-transplant video call with the Stanford Lung Transplant clinic Wednesday, and they got back to me this afternoon with the news. I was expecting a turndown on the transplant and that is what I got.

So, I have no idea how much longer I have, likely a year but I am not looking forward to the lingering and slow suffocation that comes with a COPD death - but it is what it is, and I will have to live (pun not intended) with whatever my future holds.

I have a lot of loose ends that need to be tied off, so, if I am less that active here, you'll know why.

If you don't want a man unhappy politically, don't give him two sides to a question to worry him; give him one. Better yet, give him none. Let him forget there is such a thing as war. If the Government is inefficient, top-heavy, and tax-mad, better it is all those than that people worry over it. Peace, Montag.

My dear, that is so sad. I wish you the best with what you have left.

My life is richer having met you. I'm glad I can say that "to your face."

I wish I had something useful to say.

But I will miss you.

I really don't know what platitudes to offer. But I truly hope it'll work out somehow.

There isn't really any point in me saying anything else. You know better than us what's next.
