Chemo Therapy Makes Sawdust Taste Metallic, YUK! I don’t mind the food tasting funny because it isn’t going to stay down that long anyway. But I was enjoying the smell and taste of sawdust, I guess I need to wear a dust mask, but that seems to take some of the fun out of woodworking. ;) Seriously, the Nurse Practitioner asked, “Any side effects yet?” I said, “Yea, my sawdust tastes like metal filings.” She said, “I beg your pardon? Sawdust?” I couldn’t believe I was the first cancer patient with that complaint! Then my Oncologist called me and said, “Were you pulling my nurses leg?” I replied “I’d only do that if she had a wooden leg.”
I LOVE SAW DUST! IT’S BECOMING ADDICTIVE!
I EVEN ASKED MY WIFE IF SHE COULD TRY MAKING SOME SAWDUST COOKIES
Well, I’m still enjoying woodworking even if I did lose one of the perks. I’m building a pedestal for our front load washer and dryer. They cost about $250/ each, one for both washer and dryer $500 and I figure I’ve spent about $90 on material and probably $120 by the time I’m done. I want it to have two pull-out trays for storage. I’m sort of designing it on the fly since I have no idea what I’m doing. If your so inclined you might pray for me. I figure I’ve got another few days before I sand and finish it. I’ll post it in my projects.
Well, I have to go out and buy me a respirator, those cheep dust masks don’t work and the doctor might order a sawdust levels test with my next labs.
May God bless you all and thanks as always for the help I have been getting from all of you!
-- I thank God for everything, especially all of you!
