Hi folks, I found myself in the hospital for the last few days and now I'm home recovering (or getting used to things is a better way to put it) so I'm not in a great place at the moment with regards to getting work out quickly or for that matter answering emails & PM's in a timely manner - and yeah they're stacking up big time.

If you're waiting on me I hope that you see this before you get too upset and maybe cut me some slack....please. :sick2:

I promise that I'm still chugging along, just a lot slower than normal, and will get to you as soon as I can.

Take it slowly and take care of yourself, I'm sure that everyone will understand. Hey, how about screw work and recover in Hawaii for a week? ;) I can teach you about wood types while you here - if I can get you away from watching the beach beauties, that is...

Get well soon! And +1 to Stefan's suggestion, though I dont know if you'd be up to a 14 hour plane ride.

Well, when I get hospitalized I just work harder to prove that I'm a Manly Man. Have someone move the grinder next to your bed and get busy!

Best wishes for a speedy recovery Dave! As I just underwent surgery and a few days in the hospital myself, one thing I can advise is be patient in your recovery, and do what is best for your health! It's all to easy to want to jump quickly back into the things we love....but your long term health is more important. I'm certain that anyone you work and associate with will understand.

I hope you get back to 100% soon.
Bummer about the hospital. I hate that place.
I heard that things like good dark chocolate, NY cheesecake and stuff like that will make you feel better quicker.

Well everything could be serious but hopefully won't be. I had a septic elbow injury which brought to light a heart problem. Now I've got some new drugs to take and get used to and I have to drop some old drugs (go cold turkey) which is whacking me out a bit. I suspect it's just a matter of time until things settle out and I'll just do what I can in the meantime.

Thanks for all the well wishes. :)

Get well and don't overextend(Grinder + potential collapse sounds like a kinda ****** idea). :nono:

Your septic elbow was a blessing if you found out about a heart condition. You hear people talking about heart attacks, but most people umm... aren't talking. You are very fortunate to be able to address the condition. Best wishes for improved health. They have amazing techniques and medications to help once a problem is identified.

Get well. Stop whacking out, you could go blind... I always take an illness as a sign that I need to buy something new; usually knife related.

We're thinking of you, and will be ready to talk shop anytime you're up for it, but in the meantime take time to heal yourself.
