Mr. Gut, I'm so sorry to hear this . You've been SO helpful on both of our cruise's to and from Sydney. I don't think I would have been nearly as comfortable without your help!
I hope that you and Mrs. Gut are doing better very soon.
Enjoy that new puppy!

Well, our friendship has been only here on cc, but I just want to join everyone else in wishing you and your better half all the best for the future. I am so sorry to hear that your health had deteriorated to this extent & trust that it improves soon to let you live as normal a life as possible.

Your posts have been helpful, honest, sometimes bizaare when you fat fingers made some funny typos & we will all miss you input around here.

Take care mate.

Gut - hopefully not goodbye, such tragic news.

I haven't been around all that long but this forum is like a family. You feel that you know every one on it and it is so sad when one of us is suffering.

I hope that in time somehow you will manage to cruise again. Gosh I've seen some wonky people on ships. Keep your chin up you never know what the future holds. All the best.

Sorry to hear the news gut. Maybe you can prove the doctors wrong, eh?
We , Mrs L and I, are in a position where we are heading to a point where we may no longer be able to cruise together. The doctors can't say how long so we're packing in as much as we can while able.
Pets are great therapy. Stay strong.

Hey, Gut, just found this today. What have you not been telling us? We were just checking our forward engagements this morning and noting that you two would be visiting in Dec. Does this mean we will not see you? That would be very sad. Drop me an email, so I can catch up with what is happening with you. Your new bowsie wowsie looks just delightful and I am glad you have a wee bit of sunshine to cheer you up. Love to you both, Megsee and the Wilster xxoo

[color=Red]Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body.

Well that's sad news Gut, even more sorry now we missed you on Emerald last year. I am also one who has cheated the wheelchair for some time due to back issues so I can understand your pain. Keep your chin up and try to think positive. Steve.

Can I claim travelling allowance and accommodation from CC? The people on the Seabourn or Oceana boards might contribute, they are rich.
