Update on Bob the Navigator

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone. I know that some people have been wondering about the conspicuous absence of Bob the Nav on this board in recent weeks, and I wanted to give you all a brief update on his present situation.

First off, Bob is alive and kicking, taking it easy and watching a lot of football (as usual) and driving the Amazing Susan nuts (as usual). But he has been slowed by the effects of a stroke he suffered back in September, along with the ongoing symptoms of Parkinson's disease. Either one of those things can be tough to take, but they can be especially challenging in tandem.

Bob's getting the very best of care, and he's shown some decent progress with his therapy. These things take time, but he does plan to contribute again to the Fodors community as soon as he is able. Bob's not the sort to stay quiet for long.

Please forgive me and ms_go for not saying anything sooner, but Bob's a guy who values his privacy and we didn't want to say anything till things had stabilized into a regular routine. Which they now have.

If you want to say hi or offer a word of encouragement, I feel confident that he'll see and read this thread.
