  • Surgery a Success

    I came out of surgery ok .. The surgery took 7 1/2 hours instead of 2 hours like he expected due to damage from smoking. The vein they were going to use and "ream out" so to speak was too clogged. I guess the surgeon tried several areas and finally struck pay dirt. He had to cut out a block in the artery that was 3 centimeters in length just above my right hip joint area and cut through my pelvic and groin muscles to get the stint in.. I am on Plavix and Lipitor to help break up anymore blood clots I might have.. They think I have some all over my legs and maybe my neck area too..I have more scans and on September 15th to see if more surgery will be needed but they think the medicine will do it's job by then and break them all up..I will be having probably a couple weeks taking it easy on my feet till the incision heals in my right groin area..I should be able to get back to cutting in a week or so just depending on how it feels while I sit down in my stool to cut..I just have to make sure I don't cut myself too bad either because of the blood thinners I am on will make me bleed like a fish..I was diagnosed with Peripheral Vascular disease..I haven't had a smoke since last thursday and will NEVER smoke again that's for **** sure.. This pain sucks without pain meds but that was my choice..Thanks for all the prayers..

              Glad to hear you are on the mend. I know what you mean about the pain meds...I hate taking them and don't.

                Michael, I'm glad to hear of the successful surgery, but not the long time or the PVD. I've been through the smoking routine and found that after 2 heart attacks you have to give it up. I did that! Found it was easier than I thought as I now had motivation to stop and NEVER pick it up again. I'm praying that you'll recover completely and that the PVD will slowly dissolve and no longer cause any other issues! Amen!

                  My process is a bit different. Since I am using heat shrink bags when you seal the open end you trap a lot of air in them. When you start to heat the bag to shrink it you create a large bubble. I continue to heat the bag until it does pop a hole. I have been doing this for years. The shrink wrap...

                  None Linda. You need to find the right heat temp so it shrinks but doesn’t put a hole in the wrap but the tape doesn’t shrink or tear.

                  What thickness of film seems to work the best for puzzles?
                  The bags seem easier on the surface.
                  But the film seems like it is more versatile on size variations.

                  Regulations are 150 square feet, this will be 144 square feet so we are good. He’s making it that size Since the sheets are 4’ wide. And the Shelves need to be 4” above my head!! It will be very specific.

                  As a framer, we have a shrinker wrapper at ArtCrafters. Very simple. Film on a roller, sealer attached, just roll off enough film, seal the film, insert object, seal other end and shrink with a heat gum. We also use Uline as a source. Not sure where our unit can from as it was with the shop when...
