So we're cautiously optimistic and glad we are here.

While I cherished building and flying Aurora, I am okay with sharing with a new owner to enjoy. We had a great 10 years, met some wonderful people and new way of life. We'll be back.

Life is Good, embrace it
I had a very similar diagnosis 3 1/2 years ago (stage 4, neck, viral cause). Today I am cancer free with just a few residual issues to live with.

There a lot more like me out there so this is something that can be beat.

I had to say goodbye to my plane at the time as well. Today I have a new and better one.

Stay positive!

Default What can be said?

Your post was amazing and inciteful to us all to take each day as it comes and be grateful for it.

A time to fly will come again.

Till then I pray your journey together will be rewarding in finding health and strength once again.

Thanks for post, my prayers for her recovery.

I feel you, brother.

We are bound not only by these airplanes and our avocation. We're bound by our heartbreak.

Default Thank you for sharing your story!

My thoughts and prayers will be with the doctors, nurses, and technicians who will be helping Kris and you. But especially for Kris and you and your family for a complete recovery! An inspiration to us all.

Sending positive thoughts for you and Kris, Brian. Just the other day I was doing a search here on the site, saw one of your posts, and thought "I wonder where Hydroguy is these days; haven't seen much from him lately". Now I understand. All the best in the coming days.
