Hi All, Just an update on Dad and his condition. As everyone who knows him realise he is not going to get any better from here. As of today he has been admitted to hospital to get the best care going forward. Not sure how much longer he will go for but it's not looking good. Once again on behalf of my family, sister Ann Maree, brother Matthew and my wife Kat to the Olympic family thankyou for the love care and support you have shown my Dad over the many years of travel both he and you have done together. I have no doubt it has contributed to his longetivity and happiness. We could not have asked for more than what you all have provided. Proof is in this group and that wonderful weekend we had in September with many of you. On a more personal note Kat and I have mixed emotions as we part ways with our little Debionair. It has sold and to a female in the defence force. We loved that van but made the committment to carry on the "Guru's" legacy by keeping his beloved Contessa in the family. We will also try to make a few of the caravan days and fly his flag as well. I will try to keep you all informed here as to his status where possible. Cheers Steve Taylor (son)

Thanks for the update Steve. I was only thinking of Bob this morning as I tended my grapes, he helped me chase silver eyes (birds) out of the netting when he came & stayed with us. Sending strength & prayers your way for the journey ahead. Please send our love to Bob. Lindsey, Bruce & the kids. xxoo
Greetings Steve and Julie. You can't say that Bob isn't a fighter. It's quite amazing what he has done since his illness was diagnosed. My thoughts are with you and the whole Taylor as you travel through these times. God bless. Ray
After 12 years on this forum, it saddens me to see some of the long-time members starting to 'fall off the perch'. You kind of think people will be around 'forever', even though reality tells you otherwise. Bob was the 'go-to' man for anything Olympic on the forum, and was only too willing to help people out when he could. I sincerely hope his remaining days are peaceful and pain-free, and that he enjoys his future time around the campfire above, with the likes of JBJ and Firefighter.
Hi to all My VV Friends I am back in the land of the living once again thanks to my great medical team. I cannot believe that two weeks ago today, that I am so recovered and feeling quite well today within myself.I still plan to fight on, even though I have put up with right arm in sling for rest of my live. Son Stephen and wife Kat will fly my Olympic banner/flag from here on as I require home care every day at my unit in the Tweed. I still the love getting the request for assistance and stickers,so, don't give up on me yet. Thanks for your thoughts and kind words recently and perhaps your prayers. Cheers boblor
