Mechanicon no go

Unfortunately I have very little to report from Mechanicon. I feel bad because I promised to do interviews with a game developer and a new pod caster. I woke up on Saturday morning to find that I did not have my toothbrush, so I went out to get one. At that time I decided to plug in my phone that was dead, and it came alive with about 8 phone calls from my wife, who had been trying to call me all Friday night.  She had been having problems with the muscles in her leg after a surgery, and ended up going to the ER at 5am or so.  It was pretty much a no brainer, not long after I got her on the phone, I was on the way back to CT.  The Mechanicon crew was understanding and I was massively disappointed. I was actually optimistic about my chances for a repeat, or at least a top 3 for my third year in a row... But family comes first.

I hope my absence didn't throw off the pairings. :(

Ok, time to go give the jawa baby a bath.

EDIT: Woops I ended this before I mentioned that she was ok, just a weird cyst thing in her calf.  I hope every one had fun this weekend!

As long as we get one of the legendary pre tourney list walk thru videos well still be happy :-) Glad things weren't serious.

I did get in a Friday night game vs Ted Nagel. I will post that batrep and a list walkthrough.

You really had us worried. I am very glad she is ok and I will let the guys know.

I am glad everything is ok, I was very concerned all weekend.
On a brighter note, I am looking forward seeing the batrep showing how you handily kicked my ass...

Well when I left I had no idea how she was, they had her lined up for a an MRI and were thinking she had blood clots in her muscle and were concerned... it was dicey. Thanks though guys, I appreciate all the concern. One more reason why I consider the Mechanicon guys among the best I have met in 40k.

I've been in that situation earlier in my own marriage and its not a fun shock when you suddenly get signal. It may indeed stink to miss out on fun hobby plans, but as you said, family far more important and comes first. I'm very glad to hear she's doing better, Jawa!

I was wandering why you vanished when I came back Saturday afternoon with my camera. Glad she is alright. I've had those sudden emergency calls and they are never fun.

(If you get a chance send me that pic of my Techmarine Vulkan owning the 50 man IG blob. I really thought I was going to win that combat after the first 2 rounds.)
