Arlin feel better, I read what you do for parents of still born children, what a wonderful thing to do.

Thanks Pat,
however, being so sick for the last several months I have not made any and the one guy that was helping is doing something else now.
When I get better I will be making more not as good as others have made. It seems that there is so much talent here that it would take me years to catch up to them.

My brother in law is still pulling the occaisional piece of shrapnel out of his back, from a fragging incident in Viet Nam in 1970. I know of the pain he went through. Keep on plugging away, Arlin. You’ll have good days and bad days, but stay close to your Congressman, and patient advocates at the VA. Best of luck to you, sir.

Arlin,

It’s allways good news when they tell you it’s not cancer. Recovery is slow, but you WILL recover. Try to relax, do what you feel up to, do all you can but don’t put pressure on yourself. You served, got busted up and you’re still looking for ways to serve. That makes you one of the “Righteous” in my book. You will do well. Keep your positive attitude and be well. Thankyou for everything you have done and are still doing.

Arlin you may not realize it but you have several million friends willing to help anyway they can. Someone to talk to who’s been there, maybe do chores around the home. Just ask. The American Legion for one VFW another and several more veterans orgs. Case and point. Last month a vet injured from a IED had lost partial use of his arms. He asked if we might help getting a lawnmower one without a steering wheel. A lawnmower ? Of all the things to ask for !! Just the little things we take for granted such a mowing the grass is a hugh importance to someone who can’t. So my American Legion post and another joined together and bought him a new John Deer 0 turn mower. As for dealing with the VA don’t give up.

Arlin, I hope and pray for you to have a speedy and complete recovery of these problems. Don’t worry about woodworking or LJs right now unless it relaxes you. Just do what the doctors say and think about and do things that will help you recover.
