Al Hill

Posted by Anntichrist S Coulter on June 25, 2007 – 1:09 am

I’ve called his cell phone, I’ve sent out e-mail queries to the few people that I know of who know Al pretty well, and have gotten BUPKIS in response. Even went and asked in the comments at BlondeSense if anybody had heard from him. SQUAT.

If anybody knows of any other way to get ahold of Al and or Deb, please let me know, ’cause I haven’t heard from or of him in over a week, and when somebody’s in the hospital long-term for colon cancer, it’s really fucking easy to assume the worst.

This man’s beaten a massive stroke 2 years ago, prostate cancer last year, and there’s no way in hell that he could succumb to “mere” colon cancer. If y’all can get a message to him, other than the voice mail on his cell phone, please have Al send word that he’s okay, k? I’ve left multiple voice messages and e-mails, and I’m scared shitless here. Al has been one of my longest-standing online friends, one of my heartiest encouragers, a source of laughter and healing and support like none other. Granted, I’m damned lucky in that I have more than a handful of wonderful people of this sort in my life, and worrying about Al doesn’t in any way diminish my gratitude to have all of them in my life — but I’m freaking out here.

You don’t survive VietNam, catholic school, a massive stroke, a municipal job, Schwarzennegger as a governor, and prostate cancer to just fucking DISAPPEAR, dammit.

That’s Al with Lily, one of his favorite friends at the animal shelter where he volunteered every damned day that he could, and I hope to hell that he will again.

    Damn, he looks like my father-in-law, dresses like my father-in-law, has been through a lot of the same shit as my father-in-law, and sounds as tough as my father-in-law.

    Hoping you get word.

  2. 2. Auntie Roo Said:

    I haven’t heard anything from him since you sent out word that he was in the hospital.

    Please let me know if/when you hear anything.

    I hope he is doing alright!! I still haven’t sent him a card. Al is one of the many great people who helped to make me feel comfortable about commenting when I first started reading blogs. My thoughts and wishes go out for his recovery!

  4. 4. Anntichrist S. Coulter Said:

    Thanks, KC, honey. Glad to see you around again.

    Roo & Liz were my last hopes, since they’re the only other ones that I know for sure that Al keeps in regular touch with, and since they haven’t heard anything, I’m getting really fucking scared.

    Mentis & Terrible, darlin’s, thank y’all and amen.
