Well, I have good/bad news.

Bad news is @dr_tetrode is recovering in a hospital away from the wonderful Valkyrie he was working on. I'm sure he will post updates upon his return to the workbench when his health allows...

Good news is that he seems to be recovering as best is expected. Some infections from a biopsy that was performed last week in his battle with lymphoma. Sadly, modern medicine cannot always predict what kind of infections will occur after a surgery, but we do have the technology to address most of them when they are found. In this case it seems to be working as well as can be expected in spite of a couple trips to the Emergency Room over the last week.

So, for those so inclined, please keep Dr. Tetrode in your prayers. He's always been an inspiration for me, and a large part of where my skillset as hobbyist comes from.

Thank you all so much for your prayers and thoughts, during this time. I am overall, well, and the good news! is that the biopsy of the lymph node shows ZERO cancer, but, there is a long running infection of some kind that is the root of all of my issues, including the lymphoma... grrr.... But, we are chasing down that path and hope to find out what it is and begin effective treatment. Just had 4 punch biopsies in the wound that won't heal, and that hurts! Getting better though.

I am glad to hear that the biopsies have come back negative! I hope that the doctors can figure out what is wrong and come up with a viable solution, and that you make a strong and speedy recovery!!!

Infections can be really insidious. I'm glad you are recovering, and pray for your continued recovery. :)
