well I got some updates, my gf did some networking (she knows alot of people) and found a Dr. in Antwerp that specializes in that very kind of disease. So she gave him a ring and Pat said he was on his way to a clinic to see about a surgery he will need. If they fail to help he'll try to contact this Dr. in Antwerp.

Also he was quite suprised that my gf was a girl who knew about his work... lol

Oh, some other good news is that the Dr. my gf talked to said that the disease is curable with treatment. So hopefully everything will be fine!

Keep praying!!

Glad to here that.

Pat, you should not even be worrying about Slackware at this point in time. You, and your families well being is all that matters, everything else is secondary. Slackware users are not going anywhere. We will be here whenever you get back. I hope that you get well soon.


Mods: How about making this a sticky for awhile, might cut down on multiple posts.

I hope Pat is getting some professional help. Does anyone know if he has health insurance, or if he needs financial help with this?

I don't think he needs financial help, he said he was not looking for donations in the pat needs help file.

Anyways, hope you get better soon boss

Best wishes man.

The power of prayer (and believing it!) will see you through your ordeal Pat.

The Slackware community join hands in prayer for your recovery.

I would guess the best way to donate would be to buy slack - as always.

You can pre-order 10.1 here:

I wonder (hope) if Pat has or will read this thread?
(It might be good to know he has so much support)

Best wishes Pat.
