I know I haven’t been a member as long as some of you, but I just wanted to let everyone know, I won’t be posting any new projects for a while. Back in August, when Hurricane Irene came through we had a tree come down through our shed. I was concerned it was going to damage other parts of the property, so I decided to go out during the storm with chainsaw in hand ( I know stupid, stupid) and tried to cut sections of the erect tree. Well I fell and damaged more than my pride. I just got back from the doctors and received a cortisone shot in the spine to relieve the nerve pain down my right leg. I was also told that I have ” Cubital Tunnel Syndrome”
(pinched nerve in my elbows causing pain and numbness in the hands). Now the sad part, I have to stay out of my workshop for 6 weeks, and if it doesn’t go away, surgery and no woodworking until next year. You can imagine I was crying inside to hear this. We all know the great satisfaction we get from creating something from nature. I have been working in my workshop this past month trying to complete my projects, because deep down I had a feeling it was going to come to this by the way I was feeling. I will still be visiting the LJ’s website daily to look with envy and comment on the new projects. Thanks all for the project encouragement and hopefully I will be back in the sawdust soon.
