My Apologies

For everyone on the waiting list, I want to apologize for being slow the past few weeks.  For the last few years, I have had chronic problems with my kidneys.  Sometimes the problems are predictable.  For instance, if I eat too much sodium, I'll have kidney stones for a week.  Sometimes they're not.  That is, sometimes I get the stones for no reason whatsoever.  I've been stuck in the no reason zone for the last two weeks.  On a bad day I have felt like an elephant had kicked me in my kidneys, especially the right one.  On a good day, the pain was more like a donkey kick. I don't have insurance so all I can do is take handfuls of Tylenol, drink a lot of cranberry juice, and try to make it through the day.  Yesterday was the first day in two weeks that I didn't have to take handfuls, only two.

Hopefully that means this weekend I can make some progress catching up on designs.  I am sorry my health problems had me moving at a snail's pace.  It wasn't something I had planned, and hopefully I've filled my quota of painful episodes for the year.
