I had a very bad start to this week , Monday my son lost his fight to MD Passed away just before mid day, he had a cardiac arrest soon as I realist he was in trouble I started CPR compression's while my wife was on the phone to the Ambo's they were here in ten minutes.

He went so fast soon after he stopped using the sip and puff ventilator, the Ambo's said I did all I could would not of helped , we are glad he went peacefully  in no  pain his specialist said and he only saw his doctor a few weeks back.


Friday e a special day when he be cremated 9.am Friday my wife and me will stand in the lounge room  together and play his favorite music Cold Play, special moment where we  will say good buy.


I always talked about him on the forum I  thought I had to let everyone know.

Hi Irwin many thanks for the kind words from the Netherlands, Friday be very special day saying our good buys and letting go, I hope some of the carers can be here as well.
He was 31 years old just had a birthday two months back.  he should of passed away years back with all the new technology what the doctors have out now with ventilators was keeping the MD guy's live longer but sadly get weaker what was happening to my son..

Be cooling down where you are , taste of summer here today 34 degrees foggy morning.

Hi Tony,
Words can't express how sorry i feel for you and your wife. Reading through your messages. I'm glad that you got some extra years with your son that you might not have. 


It hasn't been a good week here either. On Monday afternoon we had to put down our Golden Retriever, Lucy that we had with us for over 6 years. She was a 'rescue dog" that we took on, so she had extra time that she might not have got. She lost out to an aggressive cancer that got into her lymph nodes. Our loss pales into insignificance when compared to yours.
 
Take time to be with your wife, for as long as you both need. Camdale will still be there when you are ready to resume, as will we on FreeRails still be here, when you are ready. 


I will be thinking of you both of Friday morning,

Morning John, many thanks for the kind words, I still can't get around what has happened , sure has left a big hole in my heart, what is so hard we fought like cats and dogs when it was time to do stuff with him, but yet we had a lot of good times what I will miss dearly.

Yesterday I had some closure, we took  back to Prince Charles hospital his three ventilators back and cough  assist machine and thank the specialist one of  his specialist was there waiting for me to turn up and thanked him and the sleep clinic stuff for doing what they did for.I also donated his sip and puff adjustable arm so another boy could use they cost over $300. Sorry about you dog as well we had that many years back with our Chihuahua had to put her down, like your dog was a part of the family, yesterday we took here ashes to the crematorium  to go with our son .

His equipment is going today, bed next week, be setting up his computer in his room and using it till it packs up all together, won't be using the lap top much.

With Camdale I be in full swing Sunday pushing to get the layout up and running before Christmas not much time as we be going a way for a week over Christmas, I don't think we be staying here for ever will have to down size hopping a town house where I could set up a railway, stay as long as we can, just replaces two air- cons and ceiling fans.

How are you going with your layout John, crazy here was 32 degrees yesterday now 25 and tonight 1 degrees.

Thank you again for the kind words will take time to heal giving my wife some space.
Tony from QLD.

Howdy Tony, sorry to say, I haven't kept up with your work so I am sad to hear about your heartaches. God bless you and yours. Keep the faith and keep up with your hobby, I had great losses from time to time and my model trains tended to keep me on a stable plane.
I have always loved Athearn locos, they are still tops with me and my ops buddies. With a bit of "detail", they can sit side by side with anyone's expensive RTR units and they run as well if not better than most.
Take care, I will look in from time to time.

Woodie

Hi Woodie:wave:, many thanks for the kind words, sure was so sudden, we still can't believe what has happened, hasn't hit my wife as yet it will they say in time.

Yes have to agree what you said, the hobby kept me going, back into it today painted two modules ready to lay track. I have decided to on the module track join instead of soldering those computer circuit brass plated strips to the track and cutting the track I have decided to  cut track to size and all track on the module join be the same size and in time change all the front modules.  

I will still solder feeder wires to the track and join the to the bus wires when plugging  up to the next module will speedup  the track nailing process, a couple of tracks didn't line up, this way wont have to worry.
