Reasons for my absence
« on: December 29, 2007, 07:45 AM »
Hello fella Defenders, sure you have missed me. Well here are the reasons for my absence from JD for so long.

In the spring my dad was diagnosed with lung-cancer and went to a surgery a couple of weeks before Celebration Europe. The doctors removed 1/3 of his right lung and two lymph nodes, he then went to have chemo but got pretty ill them with some strange infections. They found out he got kidneystones so he was not in condition to get any more chemo theraphy as the infection was close to knock him out for good.  Back in november and december the stones was removed and he went to the 3 month control for the cancer and fortunatly there was no signs of cancer left, but this have been a rough half year for him.

Besides i have been quite bussy myself as I did a talk on Danish Star Wars Merchandise at CE in London back in July and two talks at Euocon in Copenhagen in September, one of them in English the other in Danish. Also one of my coworkers was hospitalized for a while at the bussiest time of year back in May/June so this was a bit extra work for me.

Now everything seems to be back at a more normal scale as both my coworker and my dad are feeling much better.

-H

btw: please don't joke on this Scott, Matt, Jamie, Brad (and others).

Correct I have been posting at RS, but mostly about CE, vintage collecting and trading, only very few in Wuhers. I have bought alot of SW merchandise in the autum compared to the amount I normally buy. And the fact is, there are more collectors at RS than here on JD.

Havn't been very active at forum.skywalker.dk neither, almost only to do administrative stuff.

Hey HWR... It's good to see you back over here, it's just too bad you aren't around more often. I'm glad your dad is getting better, too.

And don't worry, I've retired from comedy... no more funny business, I promise.

Welcome back.  Great news to hear your father is feeling better.
