Hey there fellow LJs. So its farewell to the shop for a couple of months due to my surgery coming up this friday (oct 9) :( . I don’t know what I’m going to do the whole time. I’m too active and work habited to be layin in bed. Reason for surgery you ask? I was born epileptic with scar tissue on the left temple of my brain and since then its been getting worse. So now I head to the specialists in neurosurgery to get 16 cubic cm of my brain removed with high hopes of the seizures stopping 100%. But I’m not worried about the surgery lol. Its me being bored to tears with my tools rusting thats going to bother me >:( . What to do what to do…

My father had siezures his hole life. Had brain surgery when it was done with a chisel and a hammer back in 1937, probably his case is in some medical journal. My thoughts and prayers are with you, and your family.
Patron, has the right idea, read, study, and work thru projects at your home as best you can.

Here’s wishing you the best possible outcome for your surgery Mark.

Keep a pencil and a sketch pad handy during the recovery. You’ll have plenty of time to design.
