Best wishes, Bert

Posted by Richard on February 27, 2007

Bert Wiener is a very smart and funny man who never blogged enough, but did it well when he did. He just posted again after a five-month hiatus. I’m really, really sorry he did — well, what I mean is I’m sorry that this was the reason:

What I thought was a back problem since October turns out to be a return of my leukemia. It manifested as soft tumors on my spine. Just finished the first course of chemo, will have some more, and then a marrow transplant. With success I’ll be completely cured within 12 to 18 months. I’m staying optimistic and seeing this as a series of tasks to complete. That’s all for now.

That really sucks. I certainly wish Bert the best, and I’m sure he’ll get through this. He’s always struck me as a pretty tough guy, and he’s got a couple of things going for him. For one thing, he’s got a good attitude, and that’s so important. For another, he’s already bald. 😉
