^^Agree^^
I'm an example of that with a aggressive form of cancer now gone for 6 years. God intervened. Science and common sense helped but the guidance was of Him. The surgeon was dumfounded and asked me for detailed dietary info (while shaking his head in disbelief). He was sure I would be a repeat customer and my odds were horrific.

Numerous accounts like this happen for those who are of faith.

Saying that, I am also astounded at the science and technology that He has allowed us to partake in. After all, He is the creator of the science. We just dabble around the edges of His knowledge as He allows it. This parkinsons surgery is a fine example, and prayers are in order.
And there are miraculous events as well.

Prayers sent.

Those who say it cannot be done shouldn't interrupt the people doing it.

I'm not a very patient patient. I am anxious to back into the shop. I've got another three weeks to wait. I've got a few things I want to work on.

God bless you, Bret. Hang in there as best you can and know that whatever happens there is a reason, and it is part of His plan although it may not be immediately apparent.

It's gotta be difficult, I know I'd not be a happy camper being unable to indulge in the things I enjoy. I cut the tip of my left index finger off a year ago, and being right handed I can't play the guitar anywhere near as well as I used to. It is frustrating. I see it sitting in the corner of my living room and it mocks me lol

I'm not trying to compare that to what you're dealing with, just saying I can relate on some level.

Hoping for a recovery for you that allows you to keep your quality of life. You're truly a talented woodworker and I love seeing the things you make & how you do it.

I'm not the most talkative member of the forum. I read more than anything here. I've seen fine woodworking, attempted some myself and managed a few things that turned out nice. I haven't yet honed my skills enough to do some of the things that I've seen Kenbo and Lola Ranch(Brett) do. Frankly, their work is amazing and inspirational to me. The woodworking world just wouldn't be the same without their talents to inspire us to create.

I hope that all goes well for you gents.

That is all.

I am not depressesd about my situation, quite the contrary. I am grateful there is such a surgery available to me. I am impatient is all. I would like to get back in the shop. But I have other distractions. Harmonica, guitar, cooking watching the grandkids. Its all good.

It's going good thank you. Being bionic has its advantages. I have a portable programmer for my impulse generator which I can control the right side separate form the left. This could be good for my golf game. If I'm hitting to the left I could simply crank up the juice on the right to make it the dominate side instead. HeHeHe

what is happiness?

Well the the technical answer is chemicals and electricity. The spiritual answer is much more complicated.

You know what, I don't care because I'm one happy dude. Might have sumpin to do with the fact that I haven't felt this good in ten effing years.
I have regain what i estimate to be 85% of my strength when i was fifty and have blown past my 62 year old strength.

I know, it is supposed to be in your mind, but it is much easier to be happy when you feel strong and vigorous vs. weak and lethargic.

yay. woohoo! what can i say, i cant help it

THanks for putting up with me, Bret

It sounds like your procedures were successful and you're well on your way to recovery. I think it's important not to push too hard too fast.
Enjoy each day and follow the doctor's orders.
Wishing you the best.
