As I write this: Webby aka Noah Fence is in surgery getting his new liver

It's happening!

I know he's had his run ins with people here, especially recently. And I've had a few of my own. But when it comes down to it, we're all comrades. We all carry in our hearts a deep longing for that beautiful world which we call anarchism or communism or some even call socialism, but is so much more than that. This is a rare and special thing, nowadays. When I focus on this, whatever differences I've had with people here or animosity that I may have felt, it fades away into something very small, and what I feel instead is love and gratitude and appreciation and connection.

He arrived at the hospital yesterday and the day before that he was at an Anarchist Federation event, which he went to even though he wasn't feeling well. There was a screening of Living Utopia, and he wanted to be inspired by the film and by the company of comrades.

Survival rates are high for liver transplants but you never know. Wish him well.

That's great news that a liver has come through. Please pass on to Noah all my best wishes, thinking of him and hope to see him back on here soon.

I was planning on going to that film showing but then had to see a friend last minute instead, which is a shame as I guess I would finally met him, so will have to be another time.

Hey all! No update yet but that's to be expected. I was texting with him as he was waiting to go into surgery and he said that it would be a few days after the transplant before hearing from him. After this type of surgery, texting is too difficult for the first few days. I'm not in touch with any of his family so I can't get updates from them. I do have one of his friends as an emergency contact just in case.

I've emailed Webby the link to this thread so when he uses his phone again he will be able to read your positive messages to him. My heart feels quite warmed by what I've read so far.

UPDATE: Webby is alive. However he needs another operation in a few days. Something needs to be fixed. He hasn't been able to tell me much because it's a strain for him to communicate right now. But it's clear that this is a pretty big deal.

You heroically turned up at the AF Filmshow, in London travelling all the way down from East Anglia. This sounds like good news and you actually got the op a lot ahead of when you thought you would. I wish you the very best luck and look forward to seeing you again in the not too distant future.
