    STILL STANDING

    Hey everyone. I know it's been a while since I last posted and at the time I said I'd have some new inventory coming soon. That was back at the end of March. Well, here's my story, sad but true:

    At the end of April, the 22nd to be exact, I was at the shop standing by the bandsaw cutting up some slabs when I felt a pretty strong pain in my chest. I'd been having some digestive issues lately so I thought it was related to that. I took a rest, went back to the bandsaw and finished my work. All the while I was feeling like crap. By the time I got home I could barely make it into bed, but I thought a good night's sleep might ease things. It didn't. The next morning it was clear that something was wrong and my wife ushered me into a cab and off we went to the ER. Turns out I had a moderate heart attack and that evening they placed a stent in my left anterior descending artery. Wish I could say that was the end of it, but I found myself back in the ER twice after that. With more tests and a tweaking of my meds things started to get better for me and now I'm in a cardio rehab fitness program feeling much better.

    I'm getting back to business with Dream Burls and I hope to have some new stock in the store later this week. As a bonus I've just lowered the prices on a number of species including Cocobolo, Gray Box Burl, Leopardwood and Bradford Pear. I hope you can pay the site (www.dreamburls.com) a visit and get reacquainted. Thanks for all your past support and I look forward to doing business with you as time goes by.

    P.S. It's good to be alive!

    Hey, best wishes to you, Myron! That is a lot to go through. I've had three friends who had similar experiences, two of them just last year, and one of them did not make it. You are a lucky guy!

    I'd say more, but I'm headed to your store.
