Hello fellow collector, many of you know me, Robert Beerbohm. Been collecting, dealing, research comics and related material for more than four decades. Have been honored to be fronting the origins of the American comic book articles in Overstreet every eyar since first invited back in Oct 1996. I have not been here in CGC land in a while, been busy with medical scenarios, other assorted healing, rebuilding a life.

Many of you have met my oldest daughter Katy at various shows around the country since she was two years old. A wonderful individual and a friend to many in the comics world, she is now 33, has undergone two open skull craniotomy surgeries which were dealt with by superior surgeons and was healing very nicely.

 

In October of last year one of her spinal taps from surgery prep evidently sprung a leak allowing toxic (to the rest of the body) spinal fluid to enter her body. Doctors were going about their business to deal with that when a few days before Christmas in very advrse reaction to prescribed medications she developed something called Stevens Johnson Syndrome.

 

Please check out what she is dealing with at any of these URL sites

She was hospitalized in the local hosptial ICU until a few days ago. She is now home and the healing process is going to take months, if not years, to complete.

 

Am asking the comics collecting community to check out my eBay store

If you see something which runs your wagon, please consider making a purchase as this latest wrinkle in her life has severely taxed my balance of payments on a host of levels.

 

Am not seeking charity as there are a lot of assets to plow thru in my eBay store

 

Have already placed the entire ebay store on discount. I can further shave prices on sales off eBay as I can pass their onerous FVF right on back to you. I am healed up from a double hip joint replacement finally achieved Oct 2009 and a couple years recovery process. I ship out orders world wide same day paid in to 36+ countries world wide these past couple years.

 

If nothing else, pray for her as she needs all the good vibes she can get. Thank you for reading this far.

 

I remain, Robert Beerbohm

I would ask the mods to turn a blind eye for a while so everyone becomes aware.

Thank you very much. Will pull Archie 78 (a nice copy you will be happy with) off eBay.I seek to do as many sales off of eBay as possible.

 

It has been some two years since i last posted oin the CGC thread boards. I am not up on rules & regs which more of you are probabaly up on than myself. For that I apologize.

 

Believe me, if this was not very serious, I would nto be coming here with my hat in hand. I do not ask this for me, but my child, who has gone thru a skin on fire hell I would honestly not wish upon any "worst" enemy

 

I need to keep her as stress free as possible on. She is trying to get back to a sembalnce of normalacy. This is going to take months. Short term "stuff" is needed to help achieve that goal.

 

This wrinkle has caused a further disruption in my balance of payments else where. I seek to get caught back up to "even"

Thanks for the kind words. Most of the comics community is unaware this has been unfolding in Katy's life the past couple months. She is understandably really depressed. Her boy friend seems to have disappeared because of this. Guess many males can be scum of the earth.

 

I need to hire a aprt time nurse to come in help her a couple hours every day. There are bandages to change on the wounds, some of them twice a day. All kinds of "new" meds, etc

Sorry to hear about your situation. I can't say I've been through what you're going through as a parent should never have to see their child suffering. I was in a car accident 13 years ago and am now a quadraplegic, so all I will say is these things get better, and as long as she has family, you will make it through ok. I'll take these...
