I'm here, to give my thanks to Soupers, for your heart felt sincere messages, when ill in hospital. My illness is terminal being it 'Pulmony Fibrosis' My complication set in when struck down a lung infected virus decide to invade, creating a double wammy, resulting in me being hospitalised, the treatment of anti biotics were administrated, and after a few days was allow to go home, where upon further news i received the sad news of Milton death. Like you all i was devastated. After a week i began to feel unwell again, only to find i was back in hospital and another virus another set of treatment. Again i was released and now been home just over a week. Although given no guarantees, i'm still here, Some days a little down but today feeling a little better, i've written a poem and entered a contest here. Also  i thank Mandy, My dearest friend over there in England for her support and blog.  Again i love you all:   Harry

Harry, we are praying for you. I'm so sad to read of your pulmonary fibrosis and pray you will continue to fight it well. I was on the web after reading the prognosis that you shared, and still hoping in a miracle. I will keep praying for a cure, be it through God, new medications, or natural options. Please stay safe from those terrible germs, so many colds and flu germs :( God bless you and may He keep you safe Harry <3 ~BJ

Harry, I read your last poem and see a picture and message that reads between the lines . Further I read everything about pf-there is no cure and it tears me. For your time with us is limited (and it tears me more) and I pray that there's angels and comfort in every step of your way.

Harry first of all I and many here are so happy you made it through. We were all worried and we prayed for your complete healing. You were not forgotten, and will never be. I and many here on the Soup will continue praying for your complete healing. Your blog was touching to read and it pained my heart to know of your illness. It took much courage on your part to share my friend. Thank you for doing so. I have to tell you that the Soup was not the same when you were not here. I want to thank your friend Mandy for letting us know you were in the Hospital. She is a "True Friend" as Milton wrote a poem about such a friend. I want to wish you a full recovery and much love for the New Year...
