    Back soon

    Hello all. Sorry for not posting lately, had a lot going on. With the fire in my town were we lost most of a family, 10 people in all. My father’s heart got worse, had to put him in a home. He is doing better now, but as with everything, not sure how much longer we will have him around. Got the results back from my MRI, definitely have a torn ligament in my rotator cuff, degeneration due to arthritis, fluid buildup in the joint, and a pinched nerve. Going to see the Arthroscopic surgeon on the 28th of the month, and we’ll see what they want to do. Been getting more movement back in my arm and have been doing a little bit of building on the test build. Should have some more updates soon, if all goes well. Thank you everyone.

    I blew out the ACL on my right knee years ago and underwent 3 surgeries. No fun but worth it in the end. Hang in there pal.

    CS,
    Great job on the mirror, that chrome paint really did the trick! That along with your other little touches are beginning to turn into quite the beautiful model. Also...I hope everything soon gets back on track for you...take it easy.

    Hello

    Hello all. It’s been a while since I posted last. Things have not been good here lately. Not good for my shoulder, past injuries have made it very unlikely that they can repair it. So, I’m undergoing therapy to try and regain some of the movement back. It is better now then it was, so I hope it improves more. The other thing that has stopped my life for a bit was my father passed away on the 8th of May. He was a good man, and I will miss him. So a lot of my time between work and my family and trying to put things back together for my mom have taken a lot of time out of my daily life. Hope to get back onto this build soon as I can, even if I don’t make the deadline I will continue this build report until it is done. Bless all you, and thanks.

    Hi Cardstalker,

    Sorry to hear of your sad loss. It's times like this when the support of a strong family is most important for all involved. I hope your shoulder improves quickly. Look forward to seeing the rest of the build whenever you manage to find the time.

    My very best wishes to your, your mum and family.

    I'm sorry about the arm, Cardstalker. My dad just underwent a total knee replacement surgery, and he's still recovering. My condolences on the loss of your dad. I don't know how I'll handle it when I lose mine, but he's getting a ot older, so I don't know how much time he's got left. I'm spending as much time as I can with him. I hate to say it, but things like this make me realize just how precious life really is.

    Take care, mate. We're all in this together, like a family. :)
