I am alive

Postby Lucius Curtius Philo » Sat Dec 09, 2017 5:20 am

Friends,

I am alive. Not well. But alive.

I had a stroke. It has slowed me down. Things like typing, talking and getting around take much more effort. The doctors pumped me full of toxic medications. But tell me I am free of cancer after hacking out much of my lung.

It has been a hard year. Almost all of it spent in a sick bed that seemed to be turning into a death bed. But Apollo has decided to keep me around for a bit longer it seems.

I fear I am not as sharp as I was. My mind not a nimble. But my passion for Rome remains. My heart remains with you here in the Respublica Romana and with the ever benevolent Gods and Goddesses of the majestic Cultus Deorum Romanorum.

May the Gods and Goddesses keep you safe.

Curio Sal.

It is good to see you alive, my friend. I hope you continue to remain with us here on Earth so long as the gods will it, if not getting even healthier. As always, I am here to talk if you wish.

Bona Fortuna!

Ave Consul!
Good to have some news from you finally. I understand what you have gone through, since I underwent chemotherapy myself some years ago. For months I believed that I would not make it and wanted to give up. However I can assure you that full recovery is possible and you will feel better with every month.
You are needed here. I hope you can be more active soon.

Salve Consul!

It brings joy to my heart to have you returned to us once more. I know that what you have gone through was hard, but here you are among us once more proving that "where there is a will there is a way". I hope that Apollo blesses you and as stated by Florius, you improve with every month.
May the Gods give you many more years of sunshine and camaraderie with us your Roman fellows who are here to listen and have sorely missed your presence.

Vale Bene

This couple of weeks has been generous with good news from those from whom we have not received news for a long time.

I'm glad to read your, Philo, messages again, and I am sincerely glad to know that you are alive, and you continue to struggle, that the life force has not left you, and in the future there is still a good hope.

Be strong, my friend. We believe in you, and let our believes give you strength, strengthening hope and putting it into live.

Valete bene!

Welcome back. I am glad to see you back and alife. I know from family experience a stroke can be tough. My prayers reach out to you. May you find the strength to carry on!

This is the best Saturnalia gift the Roman Republic could receive. The father of our modern Roman Republic is alive and with us!
