Well, tomorrow is the big day. Not that I am looking forward to it, but will be glad to get it over with.
Matt had mentioned my upcoming surgery on the news for the new website, without my knowledge. I was a little upset that he did this but once again it proved that the carving community is made up of wonderful caring people.
I would like to thank each and every one who left a comment, who e-mailed me, and who left messages on the new web site. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your prayers and concerns.
Matt said that it wasn’t really major surgery. Well, that is because they are not performing it on him. Many people have asked what type of surgery it is. Here is the story: my stomach is entirely in my chest cavity, which is causing a crowded condition with my lungs and heart being up there also. They are going to pull it back down and anchor it where it should be. How it got there, nobody knows. I had no pain or symptoms. The only problem I have is that I can’t eat a lot at one time. After this surgery, maybe I’ll be able to get my money’s worth at the buffets.
Looking forward to getting some carving done while I recuperate. I may take pictures and post them on the web site, step by step as I progress on the project. I am thinking about doing a relief carving of a lighthouse for my wife. I’ve got a piece of wood that has a lighthouse in it just waiting to get out.
Once again thanks for your concerns and prayers.
