Effectively it was my ranting among others that got the thread closed , which is not fair on Larry ,so it would be only respectful to re-open it again , without the misdemeanour's .

Glad you started this thread as I was concerned that the other one would have just slipped away due to no new postings and would have been forgotten.
So please stay focussed everyone and keep this purely as an update thread for Larry.

Cheers

Thanks OnlineRender for getting a thread re-established!

Yes the tension is high, especially in light of Larry's decision to discontinue treatment due to his financial situation and emotional state. There is still hope based on immigration status as Camilla reported to the support community earlier.

So please, don't stop making donations or purchasing authorized products that support Larry. Money can still be used to pay existing bills or be routed for legal matters should immigration appeals be necessary.

Newtek has made their point clear on what will and will not be permitted in the forum so should anyone want to voice unedited opinion, do take Liberty3d up on their offer to host discussions there which might not fit in this particular arena.

Let's do what's best for Larry.

Keep Going Bud... you're not alone.

If the only way to save Larry's life is for him to return to America, then he should do it. Without his wife. They should arrange for a church group here to accommodate Larry, and to help him get to his treatments.

If he dies in NZ, his wife loses him for good. If he returns here, he stands a chance that they can be together when he gets better and their immigration issue gets resolved (if that is at all possible).

If anyone knows how I can contact his wife, I will work to get things going here, State-side.

I will look for a church group that would be of assistance, and I will go up to L.A. for a week to help him. Others would have to volunteer to step in from time to time, or the church group could be caretakers.

After living with uncontrolled Diabetes for the past twelve years, I know exactly how Larry has felt. Up to the point where he started suffering the truly serious complications, that is.

Thanks guys! :)

If youve been following my wifes blog youll get a small idea of what a great woman she is and has been thru all this. I couldnt ask for anyone better....
That being said I could never ask her to spend 6 month to 2 years in an immigration detention center (Jail).
The most likely option is that the USA would simply deport her which lasts a minimum of 10 years and file an appeal from New Zealand (lawyers, lots of time and lots of money).
These are the only two options weve been given by the US Immigration "service" and talking to the people at the US consulate here in NZ.
My only real choice is to ride it out here in NZ and hope for residency to come thru or a medical waiver for the kidney disease. If those fail then I get deported. If that happens then we file an appeal based on hardship but at least Ill be with my wife while doing those.
Id rather be with my wife without dialysis then apart from her for a very long wimt with dialsysis. If I leave NZ I cannot return because kidney disease is one of 3 reasons for automatic rejection of a residency application.
Dialysis isnt a treat and release situation....its for life unless y ou get a kidney transplant. MY wife has volunteered a kidney for such a procedure but she cant enter the USA where it might be free under medicare. Here in NZ the operation would cost over $100,000.
If not getting dialysis allows me to spend what time I may have left with my wife then so be it. Its a sad state of affairs when the govts of two such great democracies have become this oppressive to its citizens. My wife simply comes first and I do so gladly. :)
Again, thanks for everyones help and support. My wifes blog is located here:

Larry,

After having dealt with for many years, and continuing to deal with diabetes myself... I have to applaud your strength.

With all the complications, twists and turns, etc that this disease gives us I'm not entirely sure if people who don't have it fully understand how one can just push the table away and say, "This is it, I'm making a stand" and then sticking by your decision.

You do what you have to do to enjoy what you have while you have it.

If I was in better health, I'd give you my damned kidney.

Be sure to let us know if there's anything more we can do...
and stick by that woman, she's amazing.

God Bless

If I have any amount of talent at all it's due to Larry. I've met him a couple times and he's a great guy.

I have been researching an alternate solution for some time (well since before this reached NT forums actually) and today I spoke to the very nice Dr. Chacko Varghese, Consultant Nephrologist at

http://suthospital.com/php/showDepartment.php?did=14&linkid=59

today and he confirmed that they would be able to do the operations and Dialysis here in southern India (all prices in US$)

To fit a festilla

$115

there would be a 4 week settling period for it, during which Haemodialysis could be performed if required via neck. They have six modern machines (not this years models, what can you do?) and he says they can easily accommodate his needs.

3 sessions of Haemodialysis per week would cost $135 Total, each $45

A kidney Transplant cost depends on the case, but is normally between

$11,000 and $15,750.

Is it a good idea,? Well firstly I can help with getting an extendible 1 year business visa for both of them and accommodation here is about $120 / month for a new 3 bed house. 2 Flights from Auckland to Trivandrum would cost $2043 in total.

I am English as is my Business partner. My mother came over from the UK and had major surgery (more serious than a festilla, not as serious as a kidney transplant) at this hospital to remove a dangerous absess from the front of her upper jaw which was missed despite complaints over 9 months to her English dentist. She was extremely impressed with the result. She was so happy with the care she recieved, she extended her 3 week stay to 2 months and in the mean time had 2 more operations under general. One on a molar at a different hospital. She had also been complaining of recurring bladder infections and 3 tests in the UK under the national health came back as "unspecific infection" - 1 test here in India showed she had the nasty type of e-coli, IV course of antibiotics and a 6 month course of supporting medication was all sorted for a song.

Also she had been complaining for about 6 years to the National Health in the UK of a debilitating locking left knee - that could happen randomly in the night or bending or walking upstairs and took 15 minutes sometimes to straighten. The NHS just said it was old age and there was nothing they could do.... well - my mum was offered an MRI scan for $120 so she said yes. 2 hours later she had the scan and 2 days later the results were in. She had a very obvious tear on the membrane in the knee - they said they could fix it. 2 days later, she had key hole day surgery and she hobbled out of hospital crutchless later that afternoon. She has no problem with that knee now. She also had 6 caps and 2 bridges in her mouth and all of her operations and care cost less than the dentistry would have done on its own in the UK.

In March this year my business partner was complaining of severe exhaustion and chest pain - to cut a very long story short he had gall bladder stones which we knew about and one had moved to block his bile duct and the bladder had got infected to twice its volume. He was operated on within 12 hours of discovery to have the stone removed and a stent put in under general. He then had the bladder removed via keyhole and a further operation to remove the stent all under general. Unbelievably good care and at western car servicing prices. Very happy.

My wife and I were planning to have our daughter here - and we were going to use the same hospital as my business partner used. I wanted to have her umbiliical cryogenically frozen as a store of stem cells, a service they offer. We would have been the first british parents to do that. As it happens, as my wifes mother was in France and could not come over to India, we had our daughter in France.

I have no quarms about using the hospitals in India myself, I speak as someone whos father died in a Sussex UK hospital following a standard operation during which he acquired VMRSA. He withered for 10.5 months in an isolation room - it finally did for him.

Just got of the blog and read this:


We also have a prescription for 6 weeks of Recormon. That's $2400.
Yeah right, it can stay in my car until we win the lotto as far as I'm concerned, which didn't happen last night, by the way.

Dialysis patients must take this medication because the hormone that tells the body to produce blood comes from the kidneys. When they shut down so does this hormone production and the body quits producing blood. This medication is the replacement hormone that gets the body to start producing blood again. Without this drug he will need regular transfusions! Unfortunately only one company has exclusive rights to it and it is very expensive.

Just wanted to update everyone...
Thanks again for all the support. The last several months were grueling and after dialysis its like waking up from a very bad dream. when I started on dialysis I was in pretty bad shape. The nurses told me at the clinic that I was literally 2-3 weeks from dying. They also said that my recovery was nothing short of miraculous.
Were finally home and Im doing 1000 times better.
As I look back on all this I am thankful to the LW community for donations, prayers and overall support....I dont think Id be here without that support. I cant even begin to say how thankful my wife and I are for all your help! :)
Im just getting ready to get the last things I need done for my eyes and Im excited to get back into LW 10, creating new videos and working! Thanks again :)

I spoke to Larry recently and he even sounds better. He still has that awesome "coast to coast" radio voice, but he's definitely in good spirits again which is very important in any kind of recovery. Depression will kill you just as fast as almost anything. This we all know.

I want to personally thank everyone who has supported him and our efforts at Liberty3d.com to help Larry out. I know it made a big, big difference and even the words of support mean a lot so thank you from us at Liberty for helping out with Larry and Camilla's situation, and the well-wishes to one of our Citizens and one of the LightWave community's greatest treasures.
With LW10 right around the corner and christmas almost here and Larry thankfully still with us with improving sight (still not out of the woods just yet, but cross your paws with me for Larry) I think its going to be a great 2011 for all of us.

Im also working on regaining alot of lost muscle mass. I had to lay off the protein for almost a year to reduce Urea levels in my blood and the result is a lot of lost muscle mass.

Larry, you're such a strong name in this community that it's really as if we all knew you personally. Sorry if that sounds a bit invasive, but that's exactly how we feel - as if we've all been in the same class with you as a teacher.

Like many others I also wasn't aware of your situation until today, and reading this thread from start to finish I can tell you that I've breathed in relief once I saw things were heading back on track for you.

For all of us that followed the ups-and-downs of the Lightwave development along all those years (I'm one of those old hats proud of having been a Lightwave 0.9 beta-tester back in the day), it was really incredible what you've done for this community, all the effort you've put into explaining how character animation was feasible for Lightwave. I, like many others, felt disgruntled by the instability of the CA features in our beloved package, and you offered the only light in the end of the tunnel, claiming like a sole knight - it IS possible, come on, I'll show you. Sure, you pushed us further than most of us could go, and we just couldn't wrap our head around not using IK and take it as naturally as you. I'm one of those, I took the hard decision and ended up moving to the dark side, afraid of being left behind by the train of history. I've learned a lot in Maya, later in MotionBuilder, but to be honest to you after mastering both programs the most important lesson I've learned is how great Lightwave was/is. How important "feeling good" while using a 3D package is. No matter how proficient I am in those proggies, it's always a chore for me starting them up, it's never a "cool, let's start working" feeling as it used to be for Lightwave. And oh, how I blame myself for cursing Lightwave's occasional crashes as if it didn't happen elsewhere. Hah, silly I was.

And you know what's the most important realization? It's that you were RIGHT, even as a solo voice fighting against the minions that invaded the forums to pull us away from our app of choice. Lightwave is indeed completely capable of CA with the help of IKBoost - even if only with the recent Jason findings on how to mix the regular IK and IKB functionalities we, mere mortals, can take full advantage of it. With Lightwave 10's improved deformation and OpenGL speed plus perfect FBX integration (for the occasional Mobu interchange) I don't see a reason to fire up Maya again. Phew :) Kudos to you bud.. wow, you were right!

To sum it up (sorry for the long writeup heh), if not for the great artist and out-of-the-box thinker, just for your firm stance when facing your life at risk, you're an admirable man. God bless you and your family and a especial and well-deserved merry Christmas to you! :thumbsup:

Any new news on Larry, other than Camilla's Blog?

The blog is generally the best place for latest information that Camilla feels needs to be shared with everyone. I spoke to larry a few days ago. He sounded okay but I know there are other things going on there. I suggest everyone read the entry of January 17th from Camilla's blog.
This is still going on. Whatever anyone wants to make of that information is up to them, i'm just pointing it out because at this critical time for Larry, having it come to a resolution would be more than helpful.

"How are you supposed to avoid being dehydrated..."

SplineGod
01-21-2011, 03:30 PM
Its a big balancing act.... Im supposed to keep my fluid intake to 1 liter a day...and thats 1 liter total from all sources including any fluids found in food.
The dialysis removes a certain amount of fluid each day and my kidneys remove a little bit more (they still have a tiny bit of function ). If I retain too much fluid my blood pressure gets high and other problems are created. If I take off more fluid then I take in I get dehydrated and my blood pressure gets too low. Its definately not an exact science but were getting better at it. :)

Glad to hear there's improvement Larry. I've been following your blog from the start as have many on here. I'm currently off work (it's been nearly a year) with an arm injury and will hopefully be back to work in 6-8 weeks. On return, one of my first acts will to be to donate to your fund again because as bad as things have been for me if it wasn't for the help from my friends and family I wouldn't have coped. And I think there's nothing worse than someones health being affected by the lack of money. You've given a lot to the Lightwave community and it's nice to be able to give something back.

It's disgusting, so called developed countries treating their citizens like they are leeches. It's clear Larry wants to work, but this is what you get for wanting to earn your way. It's very similar here in the UK. You work from the day you leave school, you have a serious accident and they want to help as little as possible while you recover.

It seems very wrong that the two of them are married, yet Larry can't stay. Maybe if they had a few million in the bank they would treat the two of them differently.

Drop him off at a place when he's blind.. by himself? Seriously. What would one do?

Oh yeah, well, I am not sure I can get that far into LAX without an actual purchased ticket.

I'm pretty sure that any airline would help him out....

Carmella, I'm in Southern California and I have a car and time. ;-)

Anything I could do, anything requested I will do. You have to but ask.

What a great amount of support here from the community... :thumbsup:

On a positive note - most Airlines have services for these types of situations. Sick passengers, small children travelling alone, people with disabilities. They provide people to be with them throughout the journey...

From what I've heard from other friends, they tend to take pretty good care of people - and they will often stick around and wait with them in transit. In a way that's a great thing to know - especially cause it will mean Larry will have someone on hand to help him out...


However imho the situation feels heartless - but its like most countries - bureaucracy, paperwork, faceless governmental officials... Sucks big time. Sucks that its also my country. And it really sucks that those guys are great friends and have been so good to me and my wife letting us stay when we visited the US... And we really don't have the resources to help with any of this other then morale support... :cursin:

Ah well, gotta keep those fingers crossed and let them know that there are plenty of people here that are more then happy to help out... Go LW community! :D

This is good news. I went by the blog (hadn't been there in a while) and it was pretty gutting to read. It really was pretty difficult to read what I did read. I don't want to start up the debate again but, man, I'm glad I have socialized medicine. I hope he gets himself up and running soon.

I am truly happy for you both and I now wish that Larry can get the help he needs to get his faculties and energy back. I've missed his contribution to the community and look forward to a time when he can again join us on this voyage.

And well done to you Camilla, you have been a real hero in dark times.

An epic last(?) diary post. Congratulations Larry and Camilla.Hopefully, not the last diary post. I hope Camilla does continue her diary as I would certainly like to hear about how well Larry and herself are getting on now that the main ordeal is over :) Good news seems to be in pretty short supply these days, so it would be nice to hear some from Camilla and Larry from time to time :thumbsup:

I am so happy for them, this had real life drama. I would hope Cam could put a book together (hopefully) it could bring in sales revenue and maybe even a movie deal! I know they are not out of the woods yet, but they are much better off than a few days ago, what a relief. Way to go and never lose the faith.
