    well guys i am putting the hobby aside for now. i am going to post all of my n scale stuff on here to sell in the next few days. i would love it to go in one lot. it is all i have left due to i sold my last layout to cover med bills for my son. i have every little time to do much in the hobby right at this time and it is all sitting in boxes. my son is on more meds and three mew med units to help him with his lungs and needed the room for his stuff i hate to sell it all but i know it would go to people here that can use it. just remember the price i would ask for the lot would go to help cover med bills and ofther things he needs it has been a hard choice to do this but right now he comes frist. i will still come here to the gauge to see what every one has done and keep up to date on the hobby. but only time will tell when i would start another layout (i'll post pics of the lot when i get it all together.)

    well guys sorry for the news :cry:

    Sorry to hear about having to sell off your stuff, Scooby, but I'm sure everyone here understands that there are more important things in life than the hobby.

    Hope everything works out for the best. Keep in touch.

    Sorry to hear about your son Scoobyloven. I know this must be very hard on you and your wife, as well as the young lad himself. As tough a decision as this was I am sure you made the right one. After all, models are only things, and things can always be replaced.

    I'm not a very religious person, but I will say a prayer for your son. And good luck with the sale.

    Hi Scooby,

    Sorry to hear of the circumstances that are forcing you to leave Nscale for now. May I make one small suggestion? (I recognize only you know what is best, this is just my 2 cents)...

    Keep a little something for yourself - maybe just a shelf layout, or a diorama. Your son needs a dad at 100%, and if the modelling gives you a little break and helps you refocus and recharge, so much the better for the little one.

    Sorry to see you go, especially under these circumstances, but best of luck.

    If there's any good to come of this, it is knowing that a whole community like this will come together and support one of its own with prayers and words of encouragement and understanding. We are all behind you during these unsettled times for you and your family. Our prayers and hope go with you all.

    You must have an outlet though so don't stray too far.

    We have never actually met except for reading each others posts here on the net. I understand how you feel. I lost my middle son in 1974 to Muscular Dystrophy and at that time I had just switched to HO so that we could have something to do together. Unfortunately, I don't deal in N-scale so I can't help you there but I can help with prayer and that's far more important than trains. I pray for healing if it is Gods' will. If it is, wonderful. If it is not, then He has something better for us. God bless you and your family

    Know this, that you, and yours, have a large extended family, many of whom you have never seen, who hold you in their hearts, thoughts, and prayers. Take strength and comfort from that knowledge, that you can give your son the love, care, and attention he needs. You are not alone.

    Hi Scooby!
    Please accept my best wishes, & prayers for your son, & your family...as a fellow parent, I completely understand your position that a childs well-being must take top priority...it goes very much in your son's favor that he has a family that feels that way! You have my utmost respect, sir!
    Like Tyson said, just because you're not activly modeling, doesn't mean you have to be a stranger...stop in & let us know how things are going...
    Best wishes to you my friend, & God Bless.

    I wish and pray for the best for you and your family.

    Now,I have had some trouble times over the years and know and understand what you are saying.Even though I did not have a layout or could afford to buy anything I kept my interest up in the hobby by reading and planing my next layout(this was before my computer age) and the hobby help me get through those troubled times by me keeping my sanity instead of falling into deep depression.Sadly that did happen once-not very pretty.
    So God bless and help you and your family through these troubled times.

    As I read your thread and our loving friends reply Scooby, you must know your Family and your Lad will be constantly on our minds and in our prayers.
    As Paul said he to has a love one with serious health problems.
    And my dear wife is bed ridden now with M S .
    If it was`nt for the Grace our Lord provides to go through all this I don`t know what state I would be in. I know he is with me every step of the way.
    And as our friends have also said this hobby does supply a pleasent respite from all our worries.
    I do hope to here from you soon.
    God Bless you and yours.
