Update on Nick
« on: July 13, 2017, 09:33:17 AM »
Hi guys!

  I post this with Nick's permission. Some of you may have noticed that one of our global mods, Nick, has been absent for a while, but this has been for a good reason. Nick went to the doctors with pneumonia and the doctors discovered he had Congestive Heart Failure. When he first told me of this condition he reiterated several times that it was treatable and that he'd be fine, however it turns out the condition may have been a lot more worse than he let on. After medication didn't seem to work he was facing a dire condition and needed a heart transplant to survive.

  Luckily and most thankfully he found a compatible heart and recently just came out of a successful heart transplant surgery! I'm sure all of TFF is extremely happy to hear the news that Nick will be ok and we all should wish him a great recovery.

  As for his moderator status, he seems confident he wants to come back to TFF but is thinking of taking a temporary break from his global moderator position, nothing has been confirmed though. For now lets just be thankful that one of the most hard working and excellent forum moderators is still alive and kicking!

There is an expression around here that goes as this: weed does not perish  ^_^
I hope you'll recover quick Nick, and take a good long vacation, you've deserved it after all this

Oh dear, I had no idea. I don't think anyone else knew either, except from you, Anoni? Anyways, I wish him well regardless. I recall we used to talk a lot, and it was fun. Good luck and take care, Nick.
No wonder he hasn't been around (as a member or moderator) for nearly a year now. At least that I'm aware of.  I mean, I've seen him online and tried to speak with him on a few occassions, but... yeah... That explains it O_o
Once again, good luck, Nick. Hope to hear from you soon, but if not, then I wish you well with your recovery either way and that you have an awesome life.

Here's to hoping he makes a speedy recovery so he can feel better. Really glad he made it through this though.

Spoiler for playtime:
cuddle/snuggle/hug, petting, grooming, playing, maybe lightly nomming it's what I may do with tail (ears, paws, fur as well) if it's fine with the other furs, pulling seems a bit too rough and slightly painful, so I knows I'll avoid doing.

Oh dayum. Sure hope he's back on his feet soon and that there are no future issues
Si vis pacem, para bellum

Never surrender. The hottest fires make the strongest metals, and they remove the most impurities. Pain will happen. It will be excruciatingly painful. But that pain must come before strength. Every child has growing pains. Same concept. We don't have to like it, just deal with it. Keep your heart strong, fight for what you believe. For what you like. For you. The only person who will stand up for you is yourself. It's time to fight.

Oh my God! This is shocking and yet a relief too.  I hope everything goes well and wish him a full recovery. Truly the heart of such a noble dragon is not easily replaced.

Hmm... perhaps I'll have to turn over to a life of crime - particularly grand theft hugging. That... works, right? I'll make that a flipping proper criminal career field thing!

It's not every day one faces such dire odds and survives. Hats off to you, Nick, for your resilience - and I wish you a speedy recovery.

I don't know Nick in person but knowing he came out alive and well from a very dangerous condition is very relieving to say the least, I'm sure he will fill find a lot of support here once he feels ready to come back, I wish him all the best.
