Hi I'm back

Postby Not your average framer » Mon Feb 25, 2019 4:14 pm

Hi everyone, I'm home from hospital. I've had a stroke, there's a blood clot in the left hand side of my brain and I've had to learn how to use the right hand side of my body again. I can now walk again with the aid of a quad stick, I'm a bit slow, but getting better. My right hand and arm are also coming back, but things are something of a work in progress right now.

All the best,

Mark

Hi Mark

Sorry to hear you've been having a rough time of it. Glad to hear you are slowly on the mend and I hope you are giving yourself plenty of time away from any kind of work to give yourself the best recovery.

Hope things are as back to normal as they can be before too long.

All the best

At last. . Now there's several hand finishing posts you still have to deal with and if you're very lucky, then a customer will heave in with an enormous canvas and he'd like a thin 1/4 inch frame around it.

Wow Mark :surprised: , I wondered where you were, as vintage frames has said, there had been a number of post on HF, and you had not joined in with you valuable advice, I hope you take things easy and make a full recovery, don't forget, your health is more important than some framing still waiting to be done.

Wishing you all the best

I hope you're on the mend, Mark.

I can't imagine the trauma this has been for you - I hope you're making progress every day.

God bless you, fella.
