I finally get to see what it’s like to be a piece of wood.
For the last 6 years or so, I’ve had some stones in my salivary gland. The one that is under your jaw. Well last week it became infected and painful as paper cut in a salt factory. I can no longer eat because it hurts to move my tongue.
Monday I get it operated on if I make it that long. .
Just one more thing to drag me away from my woodworking.

Wish me luck.

Ouch, that must be painful and on top of that not being able to eat … how about a lot of drinks!

Get better soon!

Make sure the doctor uses the correct blade for ripping vs cross cutting, you wouldn’t want any tear out!

In all seriousness, it’s a scary thing. You’ll be a lot better off after. I hope it goes well and you recover quick. I want to see some more bowls!

Good luck. Be thankful they can make it go away that simply. You’ll be back taking it on on wood on Tuesday ;-))

Good luck to you. The hospital is no place to be when you’re not feeling well! Get in, get out, get home, get better.
