« Part 2: Getting better, getting going, slowly and carefully. Part 3 of Things that slow me down. series Part 4: Thanks for the support »

I am happy to be back in the shop. I am continuing to work on some shelves for the shop, but am now scheduled for yet another surgery next Tuesday. Sheesh! Too hard to explain, but its basically complications of the complications, of the complications. I’m really a very healthy person, but the radiation I had 10 years ago on one side is causing all these problems.

I’m changing my expectations for my woodworking accomplishments until I get this thing resolved once and for all.
In the meantime, I am going to live vicariously through all you guys, so keep working and keep posting, I’ll be in the background listening and watching and probably making obnoxious comments.
