« Part 8: I'm back for a while Part 9 of hello again series Part 10: I hope I can stay on this time »

Well They did it to me, I told my family that if I ever got to a point of having to be hokkedup to a machine to keep going not to do it. Well I,m hooked up to an oxygen machine 24 hrs a day. 3 weeks ago my lungs give out and quit working. rushed to the horsepitol they found a rather large mass wich is still not been identified until I get a little stronger. I,m at home and have been in this house for over a week, this hose restricts me from going out side. I,m doijng alot better now. still hard to breath but getting better. its summer time and I plan on setting me up a shop and start building things. hope to see you al soon. best wishes to all of you. JIM

Hey, Jim, hang in there dude and like the griz said, make the most of it. I stayed a little down in the dumps for a while for having to come home from Venezuela. But if I hadn’t, I would have never gotten into woodwork, nor would I have become associated with LJs. An awesome bunch to be associated with and have praying for you. Rest assured, lots of us are doing that and hoping to see small projects from you real soon.

Blessings,
