Nope I haven't died although the past 2 months have included 11 days in the hospital, several days in ICU (thankfully I don't remember much), an MRI in another province cuz we can't afford one here, still waiting to have another CT scan (there is a 9 week waiting list which is beyond unacceptable). Recovering from a lumbar puncher (spinal tap), being exposed to one of those super bugs while I was in hospital. I am sure there is more I just can't think of.
I do have some good news though, I finally have word from Canada Pension and they have accepted my claim for disability benefits. It won't be much but if it is enough to by the groceries each month that will make a huge help. They tell you it takes 3 to 4 months to process your claim, it has been over a year since I was last able to work. Thank god they back pay you all but the first four months after you stopped working and I should get that check this week and will be able to get all the outstanding groups ready to go and be able to afford to take a cab to the post office and get all the packages I can sent out. No more black hole from JennieGee. You should be hearing from me through each group's email with more specific info. This stuff is going to be great guys!
I have mostly been making ATC's rather than LTC's as my arm and neck have made it difficult to carve so here are a few quick ATC's interspersed that I have whipped up when I am in too much pain to sleep.
