We are stunned. The outpouring of messages here and privately, have been amazing – and very much appreciated. The comments have moved us to happy tears.I will not be turning this space into a daily diary about his condition but I did want to thank everyone for their prayers and best wishes. It was surprising to hear from old friends and colleagues dating back to my Comics Scene days.Robbie was touched to hear he’s a blogosphere star with mentions on multiple sites, which has just widened the circle of good thoughts coming his way.He began the chemotherapy yesterday and is adjusting. He’s an intermittently happy and miserable camper, but the nursing staff has been friendly and attentive, so he trusts them and does what they ask, likeable task or not. He’s fully engaged in what’s being given to him and what each is for and how it will affect him. His attitude on the phone with friends and family remains upbeat and strong.Again, my deepest heartfelt thanks to one and all.
