What type of work are you in and how can you reduce the stress?
40 years full time restoration of almost anything on a 55-57 Chevy. I need to start saying no more......

Update: Thanks for all the prayers, well wishes and positive thoughts. Each day this past week I have gained back some of my lost strength. Not having the deep pains that would come on at almost any time has allowed me to
get a full nights sleep. Still adjusting to the new medications and times I need to take them.......I'm not 25 anymore!

My work schedule is full, but manageable. I just have to keep telling myself not to work 12-16 hour days anymore......something that has been my norm even before I started my business. 40 years ago now!

This to shall come to pass.

The past few month have been brutal for me, So I am headed back to the ER this morning to have them find out what is going on. I have never fully recovered from
my emergency Appendectomy. I either have an infected bowel lingering from that or a Gall bladder issue.

Prayers for those that will be providing the care in these difficult times.

Mikey
Just keep fighting back.

Wow Mikey; totally missed this thread. Glad to hear you are on the rebound! I had sent you a pm and wondered why you did not reply. Now, I know. Be well.

It's especially hard to do that when your work is so connected to your passion and hobby. All things in moderation Mikey...

Thanks, I am back to 100%. Attempting to cut back, but as of late.....just trying to get lots of backlogged work done.

Easier Said then done.

I just returned from a long road trip out east to pick-up Donovan's 55 sedan he purchased from TheHotRodHandyman...AKA Bruce.
We were gone for 80 hours, 50 of that was driving. So I am a bit tired. Donovan is still on cloud 9......or higher!

I will be starting a thread on it in a few days. Photos on his and my cell phone need to be loaded to my computer so I can post them. It will be fun! And was fun meeting some guys from Trifive!

That will make a great car - Dnonovan is a lucky guy in many ways. I'm looking forward to the progress.

Will the car remain Coral and Grey?
One of my favorite colors on a 55!
No, he wants to 2 tone it Gypsy Red and Shoreline Beige.

Gypsy red and shoreline beige are the original colors for my 55 Belair. I can still see traces of the red in a few places.

Is Donovan still thinking Gasser or has Uncle Mikey talked him into something else? I know when he came with you to Bowling Green he fell in love with the '55 gassers.
I'm voting for gasser! o_O
