Default Wow, Life Happens

Wow, life happens...

Dec. 7, 2017 I went to doctor's office for scheduled appointment after having
spent the weekend in much less than pleasant condition with swelling of my
abdomin. Within minutes my doctor's physician's assistant was wheeling me
into ER due to severe oxy deprivation (34%) to growing list of issues.

Allergies had contributed to what would be diagnosed a completely incorrect
pulmonary functionality, gall stones, and type II diabetes, to say nothing for
consequential effects...of a sedentary life style; any one of which doesn't run
flags up one's medical yard arm...but when they are concurrent, become life
threatening with a capital T!.

Fortunately for me, my doctor had already begun a gall bladder investigative
protocol which included an MRI on the Saturday preceding my going in to see
her on the 7th. Was said I was 4 hours from not flying any more models.

Three weeks later, I left ICU proceeding to transitional therapy to regain my
strength to a level I could begin outpatient therapy to regain strength to now
deal with stresses of ailment treatment and surgery for gallstones if found to
be the course of action. Thankfully and more fortunate than less, the stones
are too large to block entry and exit from the gallbladder...so no surgery.

Made move back to residence on January 23rd where I undergo physical and
pulmonary therapy between the expected poking, prodding, phlebotomy, and
obligatory doctor visits. Rather than interrupt my wonderful medical team, we
are not moving to Dallas but down sizing in Houston.

Sam's Kentucky construction is progressing well despite the ground hog. Our
shop's erected with electricity... The log cabin is under roof with electricity
installed Friday and Saturday before the latest snow/ice storm.

Resolved B-47 canopy issue courtesy of Bob Violett. Will post details with
visual comparison to 1:1 documentation soon.

Default Return From The Light

Not to be over dramatic...but things are a whole lot better than they have been
in a long while :^)

Looking forward to our downsize move and getting back to the B-47 now that a
lot of the Kentucky build out is getting close to completion so Sam can get into
his new home. He and Judy have been on an extended excursion for too long!

Packing my plan sets yesterday showed a lot of what I needed to put in the
"past" as I have changed the direction of my hobby. With the new enterprise
focus on electric powered Giant Scale Modeling there are opportunities to
create competitive flying scale models weighing half or less than traditional
counterparts weigh.

Staying healthy is paramount to enjoying the hobby, whether you are in your
twenties or seventy and beyond.
