  • Very sorry to hear about this. I know that even if things are "ok" with the cancer, they're still very very hard to deal with.

    As valuable as you are to Perl 6, it's nothing compared to your value to your wife. Don't worry about us.

    Good luck to both of you.



  • No question your wife comes first, and Perl6 can wait.

    Not only that, but it's important to feel comfortable if there's Perl work you can't do and have to leave it for someone else.

    You can always raise Perl's priority after this crisis.
  • I hope for the best for you and your wife and thank you for all you've done. Do what you need to do.

  • Dear Patrick,

    Sorry to hear about this. Hope everything will turn out okay.

    There's no time like the present to stop and re-examine your priorities. Do what you need to do, and let the other stuff sort itself out.

    Here's to hoping for the best.

  • I hope your wife feel better very soon!. Sure she will!
  • God's blessing on you and your wife (and all concerned family and loved ones) during this time. I had to take my wife to the emergency room last November, at a very inconvenient time (burned up the last of my intended holiday leave time as a result, eventually), and I'll never forget the stress I felt as we arrived with a long list of things we thought it might be, ranging from something as trivial as indigestion (it wasn't) to things much more serious specific to her unique history.

    I know coding can rea

  • Here’s hoping for a speedy recovery. It’s a pity that this will keep you from concentrating on Perl 6, but Perl 6 has others who can do what it needs and your wife has only you. Take care.

  • If you need a sounding board let me know.
