    Just to let everyone know that I am on the mend. Today has been my best day in almost a month. Hopefully I can resume my work in the shop Monday. I have had the crude, worst case in my life. It started off as a sinus cough, then after a Dr's visit a shot and 2 prescriptions, it tightened up my cough and I had to sleep in a chair because every time I would lay down I would start coughing. In the chair I could only sleep for a hour or so without waking up to the consistent cough. The next Monday I went back to another Dr. and they gave me a Z pack of some kind and inhaler for the whizzing and some prescription cough syrup. Then he wanted me to go get an chest X-ray. Well about 2 hours after that he called me to inform me that the X-ray was clear except that I had spots on my right lung. He told me to go to my regular Dr. for him to check it out. So here I go trying to get an appointment with him, remind you that I was still about bedfast. Finally after about 2 days I got to see him, then he tells me that he has the same thing and that my first X-rays from 2002 had showed the same thing. So there was nothing to worry about, which was a good thing. He ordered more prescription cough syrup and told me not to use the inhaler. Then last Monday I went to another one of my specialist and she gave me a 7 day plan of steroids and this is the third day after she told me to start them and I already feel a lot better.
    Hope this is not too boring for you, but I thought a few people might like to know where I have been. Well guess what, I'M BACK. hopefully.

    Sounds like things have not been a lot of fun. Sorry about all your discomfort and hoping your doctor's get things straight. Hoping you're better, Carl.

    Speaking of boards Carl. I made some Bodarc vice jaws for my big vice. stuck em on with 2 sided tape. Works perfect. They are very hard and wont compress easily but still dont mar the finish on guns. I use that vice for everything from pushing sights to torquing barrel nuts.

    Way to go Josh, always try new things, you will be surprised at the outcome. I always try new things and they sometimes work and sometimes don't, LOL. But I think you have hit on a really good thing and I am going to line my vise jaws and also try that.
    Thanks for the thought and sharing.

    Prednisone by chance?

    I have pinched nerves in my neck and back and when they get bad my DR precribes this. Works, but makes me FAT. No food, no beer and I still get fat. If ya feel a weight gain, do some weights or something and turn it into muscle instead of fat like I do.
