Patrick Swayze

Wow. He has five weeks left to live, due to pancreatic cancer. =( That makes me feel sad.

EDIT: Okay. Just learned the 5 week report might be erroneous. He's undergoing treatment that will hopefully work. =/

That IS sad. He was a good actor and seemed like a nice guy. And what a dancer!
Poor guy. I hope it'll be a rapid and painless passing.

He was truly a great dancer. I once dated a guy who looked almost EXACTLY like him (this guy was better looking!).

LOL I kinda like Patrick's face, even if it does look like he's had a barn door slammed into it a few times!

Here's hoping the treatment WILL work.

Yeah, he looked like a fighter. I hope the treatment works, too.

His name wouldn't happen to be Dennis, would it? A long, long time ago I dated a guy who looked a lot like Patrick Swayze, only with darker hair. My mom totally freaked out when he first called me because he had a deep voice and "sounded too old" for me. lol.

Was your guy formerly engaged to one of the Ms. Hawaiian tropic chicks? (the one who dated Don Johnson)? If so, yes!!!! How BIZARRE WOULD THAT BE?

I'd probably say the 5 weeks thing is a bit off yeah, but the mortailty rate for pancreatic cancer is very very poor. Only 5% ever make it past 5 years. Most die within a year. It is also a very very very painful way to go. More so than most cancers :(

I feel very sad for him right now.

The five-week thing was rescinded, but stil... :(

I would have brought a watermelon to his wake...

Yeah... It's saddening... But it's good to see that the five week estimate is off...

It's still not looking good if you think about it. They can't 'cure' the pancreas. :/ But I'm glad he has time to do things necessary to prepare for the inevitable. And he's always been in such great shape. *sigh*

Spooky coincidence- did you know Jeff Healey (the blind guitarist who was in Roadhouse) died of cancer a few days ago?

YES!! And I thought the same thing when I read the story, wondering who #3 would be. :(

Here is Belladonna, the Lady of the Rocks,
The lady of situations.
Here is the man with three staves, and here the Wheel,
And here is the one-eyed merchant, and this card
Which is blank, is something that he carries on his back,
Which I am forbidden to see. I do not find
The Hanged Man. Fear death by water.
I see crowds of people, walking round in a ring.
Thank you. If you see dear Mrs. Equitone,
Tell her I bring the horoscope myself;

One must be so careful these days.
