          the time property of a timeout object is the absolute time in milliseconds, when the next timeout event is triggered.
          therefore the time until the next event is:
          timeUntilNext = timoutobject.time - the milliseconds

          to pause a timeoutobject you can set its period property to 0.
          to restart set its period to the value the next event shall be triggered in milliseconds

            oh, your question was, when the last event happend.
            timeElapsedSinceLast = timeoutobject.period - timeoutobject.time + the milliseconds
