Recently I have been the blessed to receive an outpouring of compassion and friendship I never expected. As many of you know I not long ago sold off all of my hobby stuff. Planes, radio everything.
The reason behind this was of course my finding out that I have MS. At first I was extremely depressed and not at all hopeful about the future. Well that has changed. My health is still an issue. But I decided that instead of letting it beat me down I was going to do the best I could to be happy and enjoy life.
My life has changed forever. There are some things I am not and will not be able to do. But there are some things I can do.
And one of those is enjoy the friendships I have found in the hobby and with the people on this site that I have come to feel are friends.
There are some extremely generous people that are helping to rebuild the hobby for me. Gifts of planes parts etc. This means far more to me then I can say here. And there are far too many to name off here. A simple search will show you some of them. and there are more that have done things behind the scenes. To ALL of you I want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart.
The friendship and compassion you have shown to me means more then anything.
It has brought my spirits up, way up. And anyone that knows someone who is going through something like MS knows how important that is to making life livable.
I will make good use of all the help and hope over time to get back to building and flying as close to what I was able to do before as I can.
Once again I want to say thank you to all concerned for what you have done and are doing.

My health is still not great. But I am going to give it all I can to try and get back into the hobby. At least in part. Hopefully in the near future my health will stabilize enough to do more.
Thanks to help from Dulcet I have a flyable Tigermoth. I hope to get back into building again later in the year after some medical treatment.
Keep your fingers crossed! I have been going through balsa and ca withdrawl!
