« Part 26: RUMORS OF MY DEMISE SOMEWHAT EXAGGERATED Part 27 of Woodworking For Therapy series no next part

I’ve been accepted for clinical trials of a new chemo therapy drug at UT Southwestern Cancer Center in Dallas. Judy and I will spend half of each month in Dallas and a couple of weeks back home recovering. The plan is to continue this schedule for 3 to 6 months and see if it helps.

To me the biggest down side is that the doctors don’t want me doing any woodworking. Bummer! I will be prone to infections and a simple cut could require a trip to the ER. So as usual I am depending on you guys for my fantasy woodworking via your projects and posts.

We have most of our expenses covered except for lodging so my daughter post a “GoFundMe” fund raiser on facebook. I know that some of you have donated and we want to say thank you so much. Many of you are also praying for Judy and I and we need that as much or more than money.

We don’t know what God has planned, but our trust is in Him alone! He doesn’t give His children junk or harmful things. Every good and perfect gift comes from our Father.

I love you guys and I’ll try to keep you posted.

-- I thank God for everything, especially all of you!
