    Was going for 8 nights to Vegas and Laughlin with two other couples when my buddy got very ill and is not able to travel.
    The rest of us are more worried about our good friend than Vegas obviously.
    He was diagnosed with Spinal Compression and for a while he had lost speech and movement and had the doc's unsure of what was wrong. He's now in a rehab facility trying to get all of his mobility back. He's a tough little guy from Hudson County originally and is determined to get back to normal.
    Mrs. talked me into going for a couple of nights to Mt. Airy Lodge Casino and golf resort two and a half hours away.that week.
    So enjoy life whenever and however you can because you just never know.

    Hoping and praying for a full recovery. Vegas will just be that much more fun once he's able to make the trip!

    I'm always sad to hear when someone had to cancel a trip. My group is in Vegas right now... without me... because of doctor stuff. It sucks, but I know Vegas will still be there when I'm ready. :)

    Exactly. Let's all just quit the petty asinine gripes that matter nada nada nada and nada in life's little passion play.

    Best of luck to your bud, jers, and enjoy that getaway with your wife!
