Will work on it at a slow pace in the immediate future. Gotta finish my "Jurassic" Gee Bees first ;) ... and may also go for an iconic military aircraft in civilian guise here, just to prove to the "camo hard-liners" that it can be done :)

Thank you Shaka.

 

But the preliminary exams for the urgently-required operation of the cervical vertebrae have revealed an as-urgently required operation for a cancer (she has had 5 already, and was officially in remission since 2012).

 

So the forthcoming weeks promise to be a big turmoil, unfortunately. Modelling, when I find time physically near the bench, should be a mind derivative for me, hopefully :hmmm:

So sorry to hear about the crisis in your life Hubert, I've been through the same and know the roller coaster ride of emotions that you and your wife are experiencing. All the best wishes for a happy outcome.

Thank you John, Kev, Brian, Jim, Alain, Max, Lothat (and Maru in my other thread)

 

Maybe a bit more about what I am going through, just as a way the expel the worry, rather than keep it inside and have it bear on my back and provoke a lumbago as in the last week ...

 

When I met Patricia in 2011, she was following a chemotherapy treatment for both a stomach and liver cancer. These were #4 and #5 in her list, as she had had already to be treated for a cancer of colon, with 32 cms of intestine removed, and after that a full hysterectomy and ovariectomy.

The last treatment seemed to have worked, and we thought the remission phase, started in July 2012, was for good...

 

Lately, she was suffering from severe and crippling pains in the cervical area and in the lombar area. The neck pains have finally been identified as caused by some multiple cervical hernia, requiring urgent surgery (a double operation in a span of 3 weeks). As a safety measure, the neuro-surgeon asked for a MRI exam of the lombar area. Unfortunately, this has revealed that the back pain was caused by a double tumor, whose cancerous nature has been ascertained at 98%.

 

So next week, the program is something like have a PET scan on wednesday morning to have final confirmation of the nature of the tumors, followed on wednesday noon by an appointment with an oncologist, followed by an entry in hospital for the first cervical operation on thursday, followed by a transfer on friday to the specialised cancer unit in Lyon.

 

To compound the bad news sequence, my company's assistant had been diagnosed a liver cancer in june last year, succesfully operated in july. After a few weeks recovery, which had us all very happy and buoyant, she started to endure terrible pains on the right side, which had her in hospital under heavy medication for 3 months. I learned 4 weeks ago that the pains were in fact caused by an non-operable brain tumor. 10 days ago, I was told that the radiotherapy treatments were inoperative and she was given two weeks to live. She died last monday ...

 

Modelling will be a form a therapy for me, I'm sure ...

That's terrible news all round, Hubert. I'm so sorry for both your wife's situation, and for the tragedy that befell your assistant. I really have my fingers crossed for both you and your wife, and wish you both the best for the coming testing weeks. Modelling therapy is prescribed, for sure.
