I made it home from the hospital on Wed, 18 Nov. They removed a small portion of my right lung, The biopsy results showed the growth to be non-cancerous! The Doctor tried, but was unable to get to it with the “scope” and had to make about a 10” incision between two ribs, then spread those ribs to gain access. Talk about being sore! I’ve done nothing but sit in my recliner and sleep in my bed for the last two days…just can’t do much else.
I’ve been restricted to basically doing nothing for the next three weeks. Looks like I’ll be spending a lot of time in this recliner, surfing the web. I plan to write some new articles for my website, including one on advice for those presenting knives for their JS or MS tests in Atlanta.
All of my friends in the Knife World have been just wonderful! I simply can’t thank everyone enough for their prayers, well wishes, and support. Its gona be a slow process getting healed up and back in the shop, but I can assure you that I’m already missing it.
To all those who have orders waiting, I may be a month or two behind, but rest assured that I will get back into the shop and get busy on your order(s). I’ll keep everyone update via this Blog, as well as this thread on my Forum at the Knife Network.
