Happy belated holidays to you all.
Things are picking up for the better. I am getting lots of rest and lots of recovery going on with my back. The cancer itself is not much of an issue atm but I am taking it one day at a time.
One of the things I was doing before I discovered I had a tumor on my spine was a lot of heavy work in landscaping and being manager for a grass runway that was built for ultra-light planes. Also a lot of carpentry work and running heavy machines. I just loved working on the runway in the open fields of River Canard in Essex County, Windsor Canada. Little did I know that after several years of operating this one machine , a Gravley lawnmowing machine that about 5 of my spine in the T vertebra were broken along with 2 in the L vertebra. I have had surgery 6 months ago but there are some parts that they could not put together. The bone dead tumor on the left side of my spine rests up against my spinal chord and when I lift my arms to type or move mouse it can be very painful.
But I tell you all it is getting better slowly but surely. It is just a matter of inches in getting my chair
, keyboard and mouse adjusted. I spent about 6 years surfing about the Ubuntu forums and contributing as best I could and learning lots of stuff from you all.
My heads-up plan to the unity dev group is preparing myself to get back into contributing mode. It would be like 5 minutes on , 10 minutes off starting for an hour, then perhaps a couple hours a day etc.
I have been a computer junkie long before Bill Gates was (1963) working in my father’s repair shop on my TV service repair apprenticeship ( I was 8 years old) working on old IBM mechanically operated calculating machines. I’m not about to give up now, especially with Ubuntu and Unity which provides the best operating system on the planet!
Thanks for all your prayers all the best this new year!
