After all the things that have befallen our family this spring, I’ve had some issues too. On my latest CAT scan, which is a result of my lung issues from 3 years past, they found “spots” on my lungs. This, coupled with all the other stress we’ve gone through kinda put me in a tailspin. Not sure what to call it, but for nearly a month I have been nearly incapacitated……weak, tired, and just aching all over. Recently I learned that I was/am having an adverse reaction to all the stress. Two weeks ago I had biopsy surgery on my left lung, and the results came back somewhat inconclusive. The Doctor says that it is either a “low grade” lymphoma, or a lung abscess/infection. My biopsy results have been sent off to the Mayo Clinic for a second opinion. Along with all this, the stress produced what the Doctors are calling “lesions” on the inside of the stomach….basically a milder form of ulcers. So, not much knifemaking is getting done. The next step is for me to take two weeks of steroids starting 1 July, and have another CAT scan on the 19th. This will mean that I will be unable to attend the ABANA conference this year. As I feel able, I will be working in the shop, and hope to have a batch of EBKs ready before long. Please keep us in your prayers, and keep an eye on my website for the release of the EBKs.
