Where is Castorboy?

We haven't heard from Castorboy for a good while now.  Did he say he was going to be away?

As an admin I am privileged to the information that Castorboy has at least visited the board since he last posted, but I'd been wondering the same thing. I hope he's OK. Perhaps he's just off the books at present.

Gareth, as administrator, do you have Castorboy's email address?  If so could you try contacting him?  I am a bit concerned.  He always posted so regularly.
Chibiabos83

I can look it up if need be, but for the moment I've sent him a personal message through the board (which I believe anyone can do). Let's hope we get a response.

Casterboy is a friend of mine on Facebook, and I'm sorry to say that a few months back (in the autumn) his wife posted on his Facebook account to say that he had been diagnosed with a brain tumour.  He had an operation and the tumour was removed - and fortunately was benign, so it's not a cancer that will spread;  however, it has affected aspects of brain function - he was unable to walk and unable to use a computer (amongst other related things).  His wife did not expect any significant improvement.

I am sorry to be the bearer of sad news.

I'm so sorry to learn this.

Should we pm him saying that we are thinking of him? (I know that he can't use the computer but presumably his wife does)

Very upsetting news. I tried a PM some time ago and don't know if it got through. I wonder if E/V has any ideas on the best way to contact him. (Nice to see you, E/V.)

This is upsetting news. I won't stop hoping to see Castorboy back at it one day.
Caro

Nor will I, but it is very sad news.  I am surprised that a non-malignant tumour has such severe side-effects, but I suppose it is close to/in the brain and that is what the problem is.  I presume his wife doesn't come to the board or she would already have told us this.
