I got mugged
« on: January 21, 2021, 05:39:24 pm »


Some of you might have noticed that I slid off the map mid December. I got mugged by a gang of bad people in the form of anaemia, a blood transfusion, colon cancer surgery, followed by Covid 19 and still chemo to follow. It's been an incredibly tough month and a bit, but I am just getting over the Covid saga. I thought I was heading off to the happy Hunting grounds on January the 7th, but it looks like I'm going to live on. Weekly production of our newsletters was impossible to fulfill, but I did my best with what little mojo I had left.

 I wrote a series of ascerbic articles from my hospital bed (to help me stay focused) which resonated with many people - some posts travelling around the globe, so high was the interest. If anyone has the time there is short book available written in crisp chapters of my experience, shortcomings of the medical profession and a good laugh or two. You can access that on my Facebook page: www.facebook.com/TrygveRoberts

 So here are the last few newsletters including todays release:

 24th Dec 2020 https://mountainpassessouthafrica.co.za ... -2020.html

 7th January 2021 https://mountainpassessouthafrica.co.za ... -2021.html

 14th January 2021 https://mountainpassessouthafrica.co.za ... -2021.html

You do great work dude, all the best with your recovery, God bless.
It's the end of the road as we know it and I feel fine.

Wishing you plenty of strength and good health, Trygve.

Just gone thru your trials and tribulations on your FB page. Very eloquently documented, some hilarious and some frustrating and infuriating. Bet some of them are glad to see the back of you.

Keep up your WD posts please.

Would love to read the "ascerbic chronicles", but don't do facebook. Alas.

Ditto that! All the best with your recovery and future health.
