Repeat flow with TimeCycle timers + timeout

Hello,

I want to implement an escalation process with timers. Mainly,  I want to repeat a flow twice: send an email that requires confirmation, and if the confirmation is not received in a given period of time repeat the flow . On the third iteration, if ever reached (this should be a timeout) the process must go to an end state with an error. I know i can use a TimerBoundaryEvent for this with a timeCycle definition, e.g :

<timerEventDefinition>
    <timeCycle>R2/PT10H</timeCycle>
</timerEventDefinition>

but what happens after the second iteration. Will the execution stop in the ReceiveTask (wait state for the confirmation) where this timer is attached to? And if so, how can i simulate the timeout part?

Thanks
