I am in the process of adapting my shop to be able to work in it. Since it won't accommodate a wheelchair, I must make other arrangements to get around in it. It also must be equipped with a closed circuit camera and intercom system so I can be monitored while there in case of problems or emergency. This will take some time, probably at least a couple months. As of now, I will no longer be a moderator on here but will ,if permitted, remain as a regular member to continue to contribute and pass on knowledge. I also belong to 5 other machinist and machine forums. I intend to participate at those as I always have and none will interfere with each other as far as I am concerned. I am turning my own website over to someone else to run as I don't have the time to devote to running it or the desire and ability to manage it. As I adapt to a new lifestyle of not being able to walk and get around as I used to, ALL my time will be devoted to machining and offering machining advice to anyone that asks for it. I am also planning my wedding next year and it and my new wife will demand some of my time.
So..... To all my friends, I intend to be back and available to everyone I know and have grown to love.

Glad to see your back my friend and congratulations on the wife to be. Hope she's willing to share :black eye:. Good luck to you with all that you are planning. Can't wait for your next build.

Be well my friend.

Well...... I'm lying in the emergency room tonight. They are checking for a heart attack and there are a lot of doctors and nurses buzzing around. They seem concerned about my aneurysm right now. I think they are going to check it again. My girlfriend called a ambulance because I collapsed with chest pain tonight at home.

Well Geez, that's no fun at all. I had mine on 12/28 when they went in and did a 5 way bypass. Still recovering and have a long way to go but getting there. Time will heal, sometimes even better than when you started. hope you get better soon.

Mark always in my prayers and friendship you share is amazing . I too hope for the best and if possible anyway we can help. God bless you my friend I'm praying for miracles . I'm finally getting past the withdrawal of the morphine my Dr don't like it but no more of it for me. Cold turkey is tuff and I know what you went through . Keeping up with your shop is super great my best ideas were mounting everything on casters to move where you can use then . Wheelchairs will push and pull . Lift tables and crank winches will lift . HF truck jib cranes are amazing in our condition.
I'm praying and glad you've found a wonderful lady God bless you both with many years of life and love.

Well,...... It seems it was just a mild heart attack ( I have had a few of those over the years). They wanted to keep me but they had no beds and wanted to transfer me to a hospital 15 miles away. I don't like that hospital and didn't want to go so I told them to send me home with the understanding that I would return if I have any problems. I feel pretty good today but taking it easy for the next few days.

Thank you all for the prayers. I can't go now.... God isnt through with me yet. 20180424_210959.jpg
My girlfriend took this at the hospital last night! I look better now.

You're a tough guy Mark, hang in there. Besides, I will need to pick your brain if I try building a tool/cutter grinder. :)

Rest up buddy.

I am still kicking, but had another minor episode today. I don't want to go back to the hospital. I may just take a nap and wait.

I had a major heart attack last December ( cpr and the full ride ) . It takes a while to get back to doing anything , and pushing too hard just creates setbacks . Be well by being Cautious

Yeah ...... I need rest right now. I have a condition called Prinz metals angina, which means the aorta goes into spasms and cant pass blood properly and basically creates a heart attack. If it would get severe long enough, it is fatal. My left ventricle also is misfiring occasionally. I hope it remains stable. I just take things one day at a time.

Mark, a prayer for your recovery...

Heavenly Father, giver of life and health: Comfort and relieve thy sick servant Mark, and give thy power of healing to those who minister to their needs, that those for whom our prayers are offered may be strengthened in their weakness and have confidence in thy loving care; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
