I feel like robolop is going to drop the hugest fabrication bomb on us and minds will be blown.

As you may have noticed, I didn’t post anything on my topic in quite a while.
There’ s a reason for this. My health somewhat let me down.
Most of you may know I’m in a wheelchair, for over 30years now.
I had a wound on my buttock, and they’ve treated this 6 months to get the wound closed, but without any result.
Then they’ve admitted me to a university hospital. And after a few investigations they discovered that muchj more was going on.
I had gotten a bacterium in my left leg and hip. The doctor who was going to treat me immediately said that his was a very serious condition. He also added that several interventions were needed to solver this.
Because my bone was affected I also must fear an amputation.

I spent 11 months and 5 days in a sterile room that I was not allowed to leave.
I have had 5 operations. A lot of damaged bone and tissue has been removed, and my hip head has also been removed.
A week ago I received the good news that I could go home. The inflammatory values in my blood had become on a very good level, and I feel very good again.
Fortunately I was able to keep my leg, but of course, a lot has happened inside.
Of course, having been in my bed for so long, I hardly have an strength left in my arms anymore. But at home, I’m already trainging with some weights.
I will not be allowed to sit in my workshop for the next couple of months. This would not work either, and I feel that myself.
I hope that after the winter, around April/May I’ve recovered enough to pick up where I left in my workshop.

As far as the BMW is concerned, it looks beautiful under a sheet. I have had the idea of selling it, because I didn’t know what my future was going to be.
When I got home, I looked at him once more, and had a very good feeling about it again. Like when I looked at all the cool things I made for it...
So I’m definitely not going to sell it.

I have a topteam of doctors by my side the whole way (and the hospital belongs to the best of the world), and a top nursing care that I now consider to be family…and not to mention, an amazing wife!
She assisted me every hour of the day. She has driven many thousands of miles to visit me. If I ever had a difficult day, she would tell me things to make me feel good again.
I also have a large amount of friends and many of them are very busy. Despite this I have had visits on almost every day. The hursing staff told me that they have never experienced this.
Normally after 2 months the amount of visits mostly descreases… So I’m sure I have real friends!

I will have to take as much rest as possible, and also give it a lot of thought about my future.
This is one of the moments we should have the opportunity to look into a glass sphere, and someone could predict my future…but that’s not possible I guess...

Wow brotha, that is a long, rough road to travel... I wish you all the best in your healing and recovery!

For what it's worth, you have lots of fans on here cheering for you!

So sorry to hear of your trials Rob. You have endured much more than most can imagine. Please know that you have inspired so many with your talent, but maybe more so with your perseverance and positive outlook. Prayers for your strength to increase so you can do what you love.

I can't imagine this Rob. 11+ month stuck in the same room would be enough for me to call it quits.

You and your wife are amazing. You are a true inspiration to us all and I applaud your mindset to keep this hobby alive.
Cheers (beer cling) from Canada

Regards,
Julian

I just want to say that you should never sell this car. If it ever must part from your hands, I would urge you to enter it as functional artwork in a museum or somewhere that it can be shown for what it is, beautiful art. This thing is a masterpiece and you are a master.


Glad you are back

You may have had an unlucky situation with your health but this above situation is something very few people actually have. You are a lucky man in that respect.

I hope you fully recover and can get back to doing the things you love and take care of that wife too.

Always think about your work ethic and attention to detail you put into every little thing no matter if it could be seen it not. Every time i think about cutting a corner i think of the pride you had to have to make sure perfect was really perfect. I'm sorry you are having a time of it. I will be thinking good thoughts of you my forum friend.

He dude's, and about three years ago I made this another e-bike to put in front of the wheelchair.
I thought I had done that well, and now that I don't know if I can continue with the BMW, I thought, I can also create a Topic with this.




Maybe there are others who are sitting in a wheelchair learning something from it. So if you have questions shoot.

Rob,
Although I don't reply much on yours or many other threads, I do read and follow several as I'm sure many others do. That said, you should know many of us consider you a HUGE inspiration in many and various ways. For me, that inspiration is because I am unable to make the progress of a fully able-bodied person due to health issues. Your progress on projects no matter if it's your car, shop, E-bike or other is what helps drive me with my own projects. I'm sorry to learn of your most recent health issues but I am glad you are making a positive recovery. I'm also sure I speak for many if not all of us. Yes, we would very much like to follow along with you if you decide to make a new topic or thread. I hope the MODS on this page will continue to allow you thread space on this board for whatever project you have going. Thanks again for being a huge inspiration to us all and I wish you God's Speed with your recovery.... SCOTT...

Thank you for these beautiful words.
For the moment I'm doing pretty well. I'm not the old one yet, but maybe that won't come anymore. I have to accept that. I will have to do new things that I can still do well, and for which I do not have to make great efforts. We'll see. Once the summer has changed a lot may have been .....
It is nice to read that there are people who have gained some inspiration. It has always been my intention to show everything as well as possible.
