Default The Bubba plan for now ......???? Jim Linder

Been a long couple months for me and just now getting home and kinda dialed in.
Early April ( my 70th birthday) i was put in hospital with Eosinophilic Pneumonia, after a couple trips to and from hospital kidney numbers showed stage four kidney failure. (short story)
Seems my oil pump is fine but the fuel pump and filter has quit. ( Maybe Charlie could help me here?)
Just finished my 6th dialysis treatment yesterday and looks like i will have one every other day for ever . Pretty happy just to be here discussing this

Havent been to the shop since i got home (thats on my thursday plan after treatment) but heres my plan of attack.......

1-I have a few unopened boxes and orders that i recieved while in hospital, those will be returned to sender . (sorry maybe later )

2-All other orders in shop have now been processed , cleaned and ready to reassemble by Terry my part time guy . Those will be completed in due time as my health allows , but my goal is to get them all done !!!

3-I will try my very best to respond to any questions as time goes on......

Hey Jim:

Thanks for letting us know. Sorry to hear about your health issues, but glad you are to report to us if you catch my drift.

Health and family are priorities #1 and what you need to do to take care of either is what you need to do.

I wish you all the best!

Tim

Jim parts are parts and distributors are distributors... They are all just material items for a recreational hobby.

Your health is more important! Take Care!!

Jim, sorry to hear of your kidney problem. I too, go to dialysis 3 days a week, I've been going since the end of last August. I go at 5:30 AM, and I am usually out by 9:45 AM. It gives me the rest of the day, if I am up to it. I am 78 years old, and I still try to do whatever I can, although a little slower. Do what you can. If some customers are in a hurry, and can't wait, tell them to go elsewhere. Your health is your most important thing for you to worry about, not some one's parts. Do what you can, and be thankful for the dialysis treatment. I don't like it, either, but you know the alternative.

Thanks for the comments , was hoping someone was in the same boat to compare to. My treatments have went well and working on the emotional side for now. Staying positive .........will use you for questions as we go......
