Unexplained Absence

Filed under: Admin — Chas @ 12:31 pm

No, losing to Syracuse did not break my spirit and send me into a week-long bender.

My father-in-law was hospitalized over the weekend. He’s still there, while more tests and observations are made. He’s at that age, where any trip to the hospital holds that dire potential that they find something really bad. Or worse, simply that he never leaves under his own power. My wife has been with him all week. While I handle work, the kids and everything else.

Needless to say, I have not been on the computer very frequently this week.  I’ll try to post soon.

Thoughts and prayers to you and your family.

all the best.

Sorry to hear. Hope things turn out for the best.

Whatever happened to the “other contributors” to the site though? Still see the occasional post by Reed, and saw one or two ill-received posts by the Panther Rants people. But that’s it.

Chas – this certainly puts the state of Pitt FB in its proper perspective. Hang in there!

Comment by JLawrence 10.10.12 @ 1:28 pm


I will be praying for you and your family…

I hope he gets better soon.

Best wishes Chas to your father in law. Praying for a full and speedy recovery.

A week long bender would have been better for you.

Hoping for a speedy recovery!

Chas, I know I don’t have to tell you this but your priorities are definitely in order. And as you can see by all the posts to the game thread blog, we can amuse ourselves .. although it was getting kind of stale.

On another note … it looks like (PantherDigest) has returned to its former format

Prayers are with you and family.

Comment by CompLit 10.10.12 @ 5:24 pm

God bless him Chas. I know how tough that is, my mother has been in & out of the hospital and nursing homes many times in the last couple years.
Hope everything works out for him and your family.

Chas I miss you when you’re gone – but family is priority. Best Wishes. HTP

Family comes first, Chas. Your Pitt family is by your side, too.

Comment by OhHowIHateOhioState 10.10.12 @ 7:47 pm

Your FIL and family are in my thoughts and prayers, Chas.

Comment by Bossdaws 10.10.12 @ 8:40 pm

Good luck with the situation. In the past 2 years, my wife and I have experienced one parent (my mother) sink shockingly quickly into severe Alzheimer’s, the other (my father) essentially kill himself within 4 months trying to take care of her, then my wife’s mother collapse from a brain aneurysm (she survived after 6 weeks unconsciousness, but can’t walk and has half regular brain capacity), and her father nearly die from back surgery that failed badly. Nightmarish and heart breaking.

Thoughts and prayers to you and your family.

May God bless you and your family Chas.

Comment by Panther Fan in Hoopieland 10.10.12 @ 9:44 pm

Sneak him a beer if you can. Did that for my Dad. The rules? We can bombard you with chemotherapy, but an ounce of alcohol is forbidden!
Good luck and prayers for you both.

Best wishes I hope everything turns out ok

Comment by dacs 10.10.12 @ 11:08 pm

Our prayers go out to you and yours.
Sorry this is bad timing but I have to complain.
The add for dating older women is going to far. When the picture has ‘for Mother Fu(fuzzy)ers.’ In print so everyone can clearly read it is inappropriate. Just the picture of the women would be fine, we can guess the rest. The bold print no way.
I’ve supported this site with a donation and would love to see you get something for your time, but can we keep it ‘school’ clean. H2P

I think it goes without saying that your family comes first. Regardless, thanks for the update. I hope all is well at this time.

Comment by Neil 10.11.12 @ 1:25 am

Chas – good luck and tell your wife that us Blatherites are thinking of her and her troubles.

Guess this isn’t such a bad time for there to be little to write about. I’ll try to chip in something before the UL game.

Comment by Reed 10.11.12 @ 5:35 am

Best wishes for you and your family!!

Comment by JAM 05 Pitt 10.11.12 @ 8:32 am

this story lends credence to the thought that Gilbert may be redshirted. Taylor may be backup 5, and Pitt can play small with Patterosn and Taylor on the floor at the same time
