Hello.
I have been encouraged by one of your fellow boarders to post news of my father here.

Dad (a.k.a. "T e x") was burned in a fire in his home. He got burned pretty badly, but the worst of his injuries was the damage to his lungs caused by smoke inhalation. He is making an amazing recovery and I have no doubts that he'll be posting for himself within the next couple of months (sooner, I hope). But for now, he is in the hospital, stable, but not really able to communicate due to his sedation.

I knew he was active on a stock bb, but I didn't know which one. His computers were incinerated by the fire, so his online contingent has had to remain a mystery to us until one of you reached out. (Thank you!)

Please forgive me for not providing more information than this. I know he thought well of this community, but as I do not know you myself, and as his profile does not indicate that he shared his name, I have decided it's best to leave it at this.

I would encourage you to direct any well-wishes you may have for him through this board, because I know he will be eager to be back in touch when he is able. And in case you're wondering: Yes. He will recover. I have no doubts. Not a one.

Blessings to you all,
My Father's Daughter
a.k.a Niña de Tex

Yes, we will all miss him here, but some of us, used to Tex by his real name and identity, miss him in the real world.

Hopefully you will let us know when he is able to see visitors and, then, I will even venture eastward into the sickness that is Dallas to see him.

My heart dropped when I read what you wrote and I can only offer my prayers for his recovery. Your dad is a very special man! These boards can be a persons home away from home(an extended family) and he has brightened these rooms with his presence. I have spoken to your father via the telephone in the past and felt an endearment towards him. Please keep us updated daughter of my friend...

I'm not one to post often but I read the message board each day. Tex is one of a kind. A great guy. Has a stong opinion but never forces his opinion on anyone else. I Pray for his recovery like everyone else does on this board.

Nina,

I was just thinking the other dat, why Tex wasn't around I really miss his posts. We have had some great dialog and I have learned much from him.

Please send my wishes for a speedy recovery to him and keep us appraised to his progress.

He's a special man.

My best to you in your time of need.

I miss Tex a great deal. Whenever I post, I do so with Tex in the back of my mind. I know this sounds strange, but I want him to respect my posts as I do his. He has been the wise one around here. Sane against the chaos. Always intelligent and insightful. I really, really like the man. I hope there is a way that we, as a community, can find a way to help out him and his family. Individually..we must do what our heart tells us.

Please recover fully , Tex, ...Nina..thank you for your post and stay strong for your father and family..We love you , Tex..

I'm with Mag, I felt sick to my stomach when I read your first two sentences. Tex is as good a "friend" as you can have on an online message board. Very glad that I am writing a message that he will be able to see again, instead of eulogizing. Wishing him a speedy and full recovery for all the reasons that have already been mentioned in this thread.

Hello, all.

Just wanted to let you know that today is the fourth day that Dad's been off the ventilator (though he still has a tracheostomy.) Things are looking great and his sedation has been tapered off, so he's able to communicate in a meaningful way these days, by writing things down. It won't be long (and understand that our perspective on "long" has been permanently altered by his now 5 weeks in the hospital) until he can check in here himself and give you his own update.

Thanks again for all your kind words. You - even in the semi-anonymous world of the Web - have definitely met the man I know. He's true blue, for sure.

I am so sorry -- wow. I hope I didn't get anyone too excited by seeing a post from Dad's handle. That really creeped me out. I was on my husband's laptop and didn't realize that the board automatically signed Dad on from when he was visiting us here in Denver earlier this year.

That won't happen again. Next time you see a post from T e x, it'll be him, I promise.

Apologies and blessings,
NdT

Just a side note, maybe printing out these posts and letting your father read them would give his soul boost. He is truly missed by many. I think knowing that might speed his recovery. God bless you and yours. [Smile]

No, I logged off. Dunno his pw. I wanted to respect his privacy. I think Pagan's idea is a great one, and I'll see if I can make that happen on Monday. Then, if he wants us to check PMs for him, we'll do so with his permission. Please understand that some things are still a little fuzzy for him, so we'll let him take it all in in his own time.

Thanks again, all! And thanks, Glassman, for helping to make these connections.
