Otherworld has some Health Issues 5 Years, 7 Months ago  
Hi all -
I just wanted to post this for those of us interested in Otherworld's fantastic miniatures. He's been "kicked in the pancreas" as it were and will be forced to slow down for a bit to recouperate. I'm sure I speak for many of us wishing Richard a speedy, uneventful and as pain-free a recovery as possible.
- Mike


From Otherworld's announcement:

"I’m afraid that I’ve been suffering some health problems recently, and last Friday I was admitted to hospital with severe abdominal pains. I had a 4-day stay in hospital, and was diagnosed with ‘acute pancreatitis’. I’m back home now, but still in a lot of pain and very weak. On Tuesday next week I’ll be undergoing an endoscopy to determine to cause of all the trouble, and surgery may follow soon after.

What this means for Otherworld Miniatures is an unavoidable delay to the January releases, I’m afraid. I still hope to have them out by the end of next week, if possible. As you may or may not know, Otherworld Miniatures is a one man operation, and when problems like this arise, there is no-one else to pick up the baton in my absence. I’ll do my best to get back on track as soon as possible, though.

I really hope that this won’t stop people from placing orders, though. In these difficult times, it would be a major blow to Otherworld Miniatures if income were to dry up for any period of time, so I’d like to give you some incentive. Any customer who places an order worth at least £25.00, between now and 1st Feb 2009 will receive some free master castings of the new Paul Muller DM11 Harpies before they go on general release in February. Larger orders will get some extra masters, and my undying gratitude."

Otherworld, I'm sorry you're feeling poorly and I hope you kick pancreatitis' butt. Get well soon and good thoughts at you.

Hang in there and hope for the best. Is it possible it could be an issue with your triglycerides? I'm led to believe they can cause your symptoms and it may possibly be easily treatable...heres to hoping. In the meantime I certainly intend to place another order - to assist your medical bill funds foundation if nothing else...actually your minis are great and need know additional incentive. Good luck to you and lets hope you'll be fine shortly.

OW -

You and I have argued in the past, but that's on a professional level, as it were.
I wish you well health-wise, and hope you have a FAST recovery, and a complete one - and LAY OFF the sugar! Or on it, as the Docs prescribe. I've never been sure which way pancreatitis leans, but I suspect it has an effect on insulin production.

(lays hands on otherworlds' belly)
HEAL! HEAL! HEAL!
Damn; it always works as a DM. Hmmmmm......Well, get better, guy, okay?

Well some good news, at last! My endoscopy revealed no permanent damage to the pancreas, and a healthy collection of gall stones in the gall bladder. That means that all these problems should be resolved by the removal of the gall bladder. That'll probably happen within the next week or 2. It's not a big deal, just keyhole surgery, then home the same day. Hopefully in time for a couple of pints in the pub, I'm gagging for a beer!

Thanks again to everyone for your messages of support and good wishes. They were all very much appreciated.
