Health Problems

I apologize to my blog readers for the inactivity lately. I had planned to be much more active after the kart racing season had ended and after I had completed those Romans. Since the season ended and while I was working on those Romans, I started having some health issues that took time to be diagnosed. Last month about this time the issues were finally diagnosed, a rare condition, that has jacked my stress level up to an all time high and certainly has taken the fun out of things. I'm scheduled for a very serious surgery next month to address the issue, which has me worried, carries some serious risks but at a low percentage, and will definitely effect me the rest of my life. Its taken me a bit to come to grips with things and as with thing you worry about the unknown. What recovery there is for the less permanent damage typically seems to range from 6 weeks to 6 months. I do hope to use the hobby we all love, in an attempt to bring me back to some form of normalcy and as part of the healing process.  I'm setting goals....


To take my mind of real life, I also hope to finally bring out pictures of all of my current Vikings, that were completed about two years ago over the next few weeks prior to the surgery. I have shown some models from the units, but really have not shown the army and units as a whole.

  5. Thanks once again for the thoughts. Every day is like a kick in the head right now leading up to something even more scary. I don't do all that well when I'm not in control of things normally. But I have to stay optimistic.
