Thank you for all of your kind wishes and prayers while my beautiful, young bride was going through her ordeal. Â About this time (midnight) a week ago (Sunday) she was hit with chest pain that went through her back and up her shoulders. It took her to her knees. Â She managed to get my attention and I immediately took her to the emergency room. Â Her gall bladder was full of stones, was swollen and surrounded by fluid. Â The doctors couldn’t tell all that in the ER. Â It had just happened so her white blood cell count was still relatively low, and the cat scan didn’t pick up anything that small. Â The ultrasound the next day did and we scheduled surgery. Â She is at home now and has been all week in recovery. Â I have stayed home with her. Â We hate each other now. Â :) Â Neither of us can wait to get back to work and some sort of normalcy. Â Hopefully, that means art classes, The Artistic Biker Live!, and Midnight At Oasis too.
This time of year we are ALL severely limited on fundage so we may be building with used pallets. Â If you would like to help with that, you can go to artisticbiker.com and look for the DONATE button on the right side column and donate what you can. Â If you can’t do that, please share this newsletter with everyone you know to help get the word out. Â That helps more than you know.
