Subject: Wake up call!

Message: I received a friendly wake up call from Hollis (KC3X) this afternoon. We had a nice chat and it caused me to realize that I've been ignoring my CH family. I promised him that I would get here and let everyone know what I've been up to. Basically, my health continues to deteriorate! I continue to suffer with chronic lower back pain. I travel back and forth to Memphis TN to have my pain pump serviced. Not sure why because it doesn't provide me any relief at all. The pain is crippling most of the time. The only real relief is when I am lying down in my bed. Gravity is my biggest nemisis. if I am vertical, the pain is unbearable! Then there is the bilateral Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) in my hands. RA is a nasty beast and plays havoc with many parts of my body. I have learned that "RA" is the underlying cause of my many ailments. Then there is the bilateral Neuropothy in both feet which wakes me up most nights with sharp pain, needles/pins etc... Last but certainly not least are my lungs. I have Fibrosis (Pulmonary Fibrosis), which is not curable. In addition to the Fibrosis my lungs are stricken with (ILD) lung disease. Google that one and you will see that it is cunning and dangerous. With my lung situation, the Corona Virus causes me to stay indoors. If I were to be stricken by the virus, coupled with my lung situation, it would kill me quickly. I shared with Hollis that I have only been outside of my home 7 times in the past 4 months. All were trips to various doctors/hospitals. I still have the Icom-7000 in my vehicle but health keeps me from running counties. Should Corona Virus become less threatening, I will go out and run counties. Alice is eager to drive for me to do this but I can't take the chance yet. Have I bored any of you yet? If so, I apologize. 73 to all.
