I've been involved, for much of this year and acutely for the past month, in a constant bedside vigil, a daily, life-or-death struggle regarding my mother's health. We've all made our peace (as much as we can) and said our goodbyes more than once. But she's f**king tough, and stubborn. She's been pulled back from the brink several times and we are hoping and praying daily for a miracle that will put her in permanent positive turnaround. It's been an absolute rollercoaster that has taken its toll on my entire family--emotionally, financially, physically, psychologically, spiritually and in every other way. But as long as she's still fighting, so are we on her behalf. None of us are ready to lose her.
This situation, incidentally, is the primary reason for my absence from these boards of late.
So I wouldn't wish the pain, stress and trauma we are going through on anyone, including Mr. Noory, who, ultimately, in my life, is at worst an annoyance, guilty of being a bad radio host and a corporate tool. I may not care for his style, his agenda, or what he's done to my favorite radio show, but I don't hate the guy, and--however he handles it (or what we may THINK of how he handles it), I wish him and his family and loved ones my deepest, sincerest, most heartfelt condolences, for all that they are worth.
