Started the Couger

Goodaye all

After being told to get your affairs in order and expect the worse, l am un grounded.
All the tests showed a aggressive form of the big C, but after 3 failed biopsys and a 4th successful l have a treatable disease.
May or may not worry me in the future.

So l will be finishing the Couger and flying it.:celebrate:

How good is that. I know how that comment from the doctors can affect us. Great news and I am glad you are going to continue on with that beautiful plane. Congrats.

Fantastic news I know exactly what it is like as I was diagnosed with prostate cancer eleven years ago, all ok now. Can't wait to see you airborne in that Cougar of yours. Yipee.:thumb up:

Good news Sloper, I'm very happy to hear that. I have a good friend here fighting lung cancer ( never smoked in his life !) I told him to keep flying which he has. He's always out between bouts of chemo when he's got the strength, and it is just great to see as he's always a happier man afterwards.
I think I'd be doing the same, and I hope you can also. cheers, Maj......
