Title: My modeling has suffered
Post by: Des on October 19, 2016, 07:38:47 PM
My wife contracted swine flu and spent two weeks in hospital, since being home she has been on oxygen for at least 15 hours per day, she has very limited physical function so all the cooking and domestic duties are up to me. It will be quite some time before she returns to her normal self so in the mean time my modeling activities have been put on the back burner. As much as I would like to be building models the health of my wife is more important, nursing her back to full health is a priority right now, modeling can wait.

Of course the modeling can wait, Des.  I really hope your wife recovers quickly
as possible.  My thought will be with you both, my friend.

Best wishes

Hell Des, no way should modelling be on your mind right now. Hopefully your wife will make as speedy a recovery as possible but in the meantime your thoughts most definitely have to be with her, modelling will still be there when you can and in due course.

Looking after a loved one can be a stressful time - may you both soon recover from this setback

Best wishes - Tug

You certainly have got your priorities right Des. Modelling can wait, your wife's health cannot. I wish Adrienne a swift and complete recovery and hope that you can find some time to relax a little too.

Des, as everyone else has said, your priorities are in perfect order.  If Carol were to become so seriously ill, I would spend every waking moment doing whatever it takes to make her comfortable and speed her recovery.  My prayers are with you and Adrienne for her complete and speedy recovery.

Sorry to hear about your wife Des. Hopefully she'll make a full recovery soon. Take care of her as that is way more important than modeling at the moment.

All the best to you and your wife,

I'll add my best wishes for a speedy and complete recovery too.  I took care of my wife for her final year, so I know all too well the magnitude of the job.  I have a figurine of Rosie, the robot maid from The Jetsons cartoon, standing on my computer desk to remind me of what it was like  ;)

Thanks very much to all those who have left very comforting and kind words, they are very much appreciated not only by me but by Adrienne as well.

The latest report on Adrienne is all good, she saw her lung specialist last week and she no longer needs to be on oxygen, he also took her off some of her medication. Adrienne is walking every day to build up her strength and to increase her lung function. It has been a long haul since August but the next few weeks should see her back to where she was before she was taken to hospital. Adrienne and I adore each other and it was that devotion that gave us the strength to pull through this horrible time, we supported each other where needed and this has made us even closer.

It won't be much longer when I will be able to return to my model bench, as you can probably understand and appreciate all my time has been spent caring for my wife, her health and well being was and still is top priority.

2017 is going to be a very good year.

Des.
