I thought some people would want to know that I had a stroke. I’m still in rehab and hope for a full recovery.

Get better, and don’t have another one!!!!!!!!

Your physicians should have a lot advice on how not to get the next one…........just follow their advice just like you do your woodworking, carefully.

Nothing is 100% in life, but you can change the odds that any given medical event will happen, and odds are something you understand.

I will expect nothing but 100% recovery, so no half way stuff…..........(-:

Seriously, hope your recovery is swift and complete, you have a lot of projects left to do in life…..........
