It is an experience to test the mettle of any spouse, watching your beloved being strapped into the machine, then you are escorted out to the waiting area where sometimes you get to see the "Radiation ON" safety lights illuminate. Then the endurance test comes in the form of chemo, where you get to see her struggle through some of the darkest days of her life. All for the hope of eking out a few more days together, days when you can be free of the machines and the chemicals. Every day is a gift. Too often we fail to make that realization until a life-changing event awakens us to this reality.

No doubt you have done the right thing in selling Aurora, and her last flight in your hands will be etched in your memory for years to come. I sincerely hope you have the opportunity to savor those memories for many, many days in the presence of your beautiful, healthy wife.

Thanks everybody. Kris's neck cancer is stage 4...but the doctors here said it was viral caused. The Tomotherapy treatment can target the tumor like scalpel. Said she'll have to endure one of the most aggressive and painful treatment protocols they perform. BUT, she's in good health, found it early and they expect a 100% in 7 weeks. 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
